Design for Additive Manufacturing with Filamet™

Each metal additive manufacturing process has its own set of guidelines for ideal part size and shape – Design for Additive Manufacturing – and Filamet™ is no different. While the open-architecture process that Filamet™ allows gives you unlimited options, there are some parameters that, if followed, will make it easier for you to get the …

The Virtual Foundry develops custom materials for additive manufacturing

Until recently, engineers and designers were limited in the materials they could use for additive manufacturing. That’s because the catalogs of the major 3D printer manufacturers tend to focus on the most popular, high-volume materials. These creators now have another option: Custom metal, glass and ceramic materials from The Virtual Foundry, specially formulated to help …

The Virtual Foundry Awarded Patent for its FDM/FFF Metal 3D Printing System

The Virtual Foundry recently won a patent for its proprietary process for extruding metal, glass or ceramic powder with a thermoplastic binder into continuous filament suitable for use in fused filament 3D printers. Once an object is printed using this hybrid material, it is sintered to remove the plastic binder. This process produces an object …
