About Metal 3D Printing

About the material:

  • 60% 420 Stainless Steel
  • 40% Bronze
    • 90% Copper
    • 10% Tin

Printed by binding stainless steel powder into the shape of the object. The part is then placed in a 1100°C over and infused with bronze. The part is then sintered into a solid metal part.

The part is then polished. Some burrs may escape polishing, especially on internal areas. Holes may require reaming with a drill bit.

If your part has an excessive amount of stuck powder, or filled holes, please contact Shapeways customer service with a photo of your part for a replacement.
