3D Printing in Metal:
An Overview of Additive Manufacturing with Metals
3 Week Online Workshop
Sep. 18-Oct. 2, 2018
The Metal X 3D Printing system is an end-to-end manufacturing solution, providing users everything you need to go from design to fully functional parts in less than a day. The Metal X is up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies — and up to a 100x less than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting.
During this three-week online course that mixes live instructor-led sessions with online discussions and personalized help from course facilitators, you will learn the key principles of metal additive manufacturing. The course will cover the process of 3D printing in metal from design through execution, highlighting key concepts, and modeling techniques along the way. You’ll learn about rapid prototyping and end-use production in metal, its benefits and uses, and the latest information on this up-and-coming technology that is set to transform the manufacturing industry. By the end of the course, you will have gained a deep understanding of additive manufacturing in metal – both the technology and its many uses, and will walk away with insight into how you might apply 3D printing in metal to your upcoming ventures.

Learning Objectives By the end of this course, participants will:
- Understand the basic principles of metal additive manufacturing, its benefits, key uses, and applications.
- Learn about multiple methodologies for approaching 3D printing in metal, in both industrial and non-industrial contexts.
- Know the materials (metals and alloys) and processes involved in metal AM, and understand when to employ which, based on capability, mechanical properties, and cost.
- Learn about design considerations and specifications for 3D printing in metal.
- Hear examples of rapid prototyping and end-use production for 3D printing in metal.

3DPrint.com, the lead sponsor of this 3-week long class, asked Nick Sondej, a sponsor of this class from Markforged, to share what advancement in 3D printing he’s most excited about.
“The spread of low cost metal 3D printing is extremely exciting. I think that it’s going to make major impacts as well as have secondary effects on a number of industries, especially manufacturing, in the next few years. My company, Markforged, is readying to release some really performant 3D printable tool steels and more exotic metals like Inconel 625 in the next couple months. We’re seeing massive interest from the manufacturing and aerospace markets already.”
“The immediate impact is that we’ll see much faster, lower cost prototyping and iteration of metal parts within days instead of weeks. But it’s the indirect effects that I think are the most interesting. Right now 3D printing is still a bit of a niche process in a lot of manufacturing tooling and R&D efforts. That’s changing, and we’re seeing adoption at an accelerating rate but more often than not, manufacturing companies still design and produce their components with traditional processes like CNC machining. Low cost metal 3D printing with our Metal X is already changing that.”
“The indirect effects I’m most excited for are when companies start designing parts specifically to be 3D printed in metal because it’s the most efficient choice. We’re going to see a wave of clever parts that solve engineering challenges in a unique way and can only be 3D printed and, consequently, a huge demand for engineers who understand how to effectively design for 3D printing processes. That demand even trickles down to engineering curriculums, which are already evolving to include much more serious design for 3D printing instruction.”
