Functional metal parts were once the holy grail of additive manufacturing. Today, there are many processes available that can print metal, from SLS to direct powder metal deposition, to metal-infused flux materials that are then fired in a kiln. But the oldest additive metal technology dates back centuries: welding. Gefertec GmbH has taken the process of arc welding to its additive conclusion, building fully dense metal parts bead by bead.
Gefertec 3DMP is based on standard arc welding t…
