3Diligent introduces new 3D printing processes for metal parts
3Diligent has expanded its metal rapid manufacturing technologies to provide a range of 3D printing options to create metal parts anywhere. The company has announced new capabilities which will enable 3Diligent to offer metal plating of resin and plastic parts in addition to metal casting of wax-printed parts.
Metal plating of 3D-printed parts allows designers to achieve many of the benefits of metal printing, without the price tag. Through metal plating, parts are given a metallic appearance and additional durability.
Wax print to cast metal technology provides customers a means to access metals that aren’t readily printed any other way. This process can be utilized for casting of precious metals or industrial alloys that aren’t readily offered in the powder form required for other types of metal 3D printing.
