Markforged.  The company that revolutionized 3D printing with composite carbon fiber, created a breakthrough in metal 3D printing. The Metal X greatly accelerates innovation, delivering metal parts overnight using a new technology at a fraction of the cost. Leave 20th century manufacturing in the dust and create anything from industrial replacement parts to injection molds to working prototypes.

Metal X uses a process called Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM).  ADAM prints your part using a bound metal powder rod that transforms into a dense metal part in one easy step. Bulk sintering provides crystal growth through all axes giving your parts excellent mechanical properties in all directions.

Print with 303 & 17-4 Stainless Steel.  303 stainless steel is great for post processing in CNC milling and turning operations. It maintains corrosion resistance up to 800 deg C. Markforged uses it in on the drive roller for the fiber system on the Mark X.  17-4 stainless steel combines high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness, making it widely used in aerospace, medical and petroleum industries. Markforged uses it for assembly fixtures and tooling on the Mark X.  Additional metal materials are in beta testing, including: Titanium (Ti-6Al-4V), 7075 Aluminum, IN Alloy (Inconel) 625, and A-2 & D-2 Tool Steel.
