Large-format, multi-metal 3D printing with aerospace origins

3D Print Authority Podcast / By Adam Fasnacht

After working in aerospace for years, Melanie and her co-founder saw an opportunity to transform how large complex metal parts were made. They looked at every technology possible and identified Direct Energy Deposition as the best option.

Fast-forward to today, and FormAlloy has created a really impressive system. Their metal 3D printers do not have the typical build size and material constraints that you find in more traditional DMLS systems. Instead, their machines

  • print in nearly any castable/weldable material

  • build parts quickly up to 1 meter in size

  • seamlessly change from one metal to another in the same build

On top of talking technology, we touched on tackling entrepreneurship challenges as a team in 2020, and how they first got started.
