Metal X System

The Metal X is a revolutionary 3D printer that prints metal powder bound in a plastic matrix to eliminate safety risks associated with traditional metal 3D printing methods while enabling new features like close-cell infill for reduced part weight and cost. It’s up to 10x less expensive than alternative metal additive manufacturing technologies — and up to 100x less than traditional fabrication technologies like machining or casting. Affordable, reliable, and easy to use, the Metal X print system gives you everything you need to go from design to fully functional metal parts faster than ever before.

Public perception of additive manufacturing has been skewed for years. Industry monoliths have been obsessed over futuristic, vanity applications instead of practical use cases. But they’ve had it wrong. Today, 3D printing solutions are already transforming supply chains and manufacturers around the world.

3D Printers & Scanners

Get out in front of your new product design, packaging or tooling requirements, and deliver real parts – real time. Our 3D printers generate plastic models that are tough enough to be used as working parts. This enables you to perform testing for form, fit and function right from your office.
