Sintering Powders: What, Why and When?

Sintering Powders: What, Why and When? [Printable Version Here] Sintering Powders include two groups: Refractory Ballast and Sintering Carbon Refractory Ballast The purpose of Refractory Ballast materials is to support the part shape during debinding and sintering. It also helps the binder leave the print during debinding. Al2O3 is used during debind for Copper and

Forge Sintering 3D Prints

Forge Sintering Bronze Day 1: I’m in the shop today working on some new ways to sinter parts that have already been debound. We call them ‘brown’ at this stage. I’m working with bronze today. Our normal debind recipe for all of our materials is to: We typically run this cycle over night, Debind one

Bronze-Age Relic?

Bronze-Age Relic? or, was this pure bronze work of art 3D printed in someones basement just last week? Drumroll Please… It was 3D Printed with less than $3 worth of Filamet™, a bronze 3D printing filament that works with any of the millions of 3d printers that currently print plastic. Combining Filamet™ with the most
