F410 Sample Prints: 100% Metal
The Fusion3 F410 provides the ability to make 100% metal 3D printed parts at a fraction of the cost of current technologies.
3D Print 316L Stainless Steel, with more materials on the way
Material companies are racing to provide metal filaments that can be printed on the Fusion3 F410 affordable metal 3D printer. The first material certified for the Fusion3 F410 is BASF’s Ultrafuse 316L Stainless Steel. This material is approximately 85% metal and 15% plastic binder. When put through a series of processing steps you are left with a 100% metal part.
100% Metal Parts Are Still Expensive
Printing with BASF Ultrafuse 316L stainless steel is still expensive. You should assume a cost of $500 per kilogram between the cost of the material and the processing (sintering and debinding). However, in comparison to the current metal 3D printing technologies, this is very inexpensive and still allows you to do plastic 3D printing with your Fusion3 F410, in addition to metal parts.
3D Printed Parts Require Post-Processing
All 3D printed metal parts require some kind of post-processing to create a 100% metal part. Regardless of the technology used, the part must have the plastic or other binding material removed (debinding) and metal fully fused together (sintering). These processes usually require expensive hardware ($30,000 to $100,000), industrial space to install and labor intensive to operate. Fusion3’s metal filament partners provide post-processing services to help you avoid the cost and hassle. Just mail your part to the vendor and with 1-2 weeks you will receive your finished parts.
Metal 3D Printing Is Not An Exact Process
You should assume that 3D printing metal parts on an FDM 3D printer is experimental. Your part will shrink and different rates when the plastic is melted off depending on the settings used when printing. Different shapes and geometries may deform when processed. However, certain parts will turn out very well with this process and once dialed in, you will find you results to be repeatable.
