We guide you step by step
Printing with an Ultrafuse® Metal Filament is very similar to plastic FFF printing, however; there are subsequent pro- cessing steps that dictate the specific practices to increase the probability of successfully producing a full metal part. Once filament is loaded, flow has been calibrated, and the desired parts have been sliced, printing can begin.

DEBINDING & SINTERING
The application once printed and ready, the next step is getting your application debound and sintered. Critical differentiators from typical FFF 3D printing. But afterwards it will give you a full metal part. To support in getting the parts debound and sintered we now have launched a D&S Portal. Learn how it works in our "How to" video or read all about it in our User Guidelines.

Ultrafuse® Support Layer*
Ultrafuse® Support Layer filament developed to be used in combination with Ultrafuse® Metal Filaments.
When printed between support and the object, it creates a barrier during sintering and facilitates the separation of support from the metal part.
Ultrafuse® Support Layer is not developed to print stand-alone parts and should be printed as a layer attached to the support structures in dual extrusion prints.
