Directed Energy Deposition 3D Printing Service
3Diligent's directed energy deposition 3D printing service is capable of delivering repairs on parts or ground-up fabrication of geometries—especially parts larger than one cubic foot. If you think DED printing might be optimal for your project, submit an RFQ in our secure portal or email us to discuss your project needs.
Directed Energy Deposition Process Overview
Directed Energy Deposition is the process of a jetting powdered material into a melt pool. This melt pool is created by an energy source, typically a laser, which is attached to a machine tool arm. In this way, the machine tool can build a part up layer-by-layer, or simply build upon an existing part to create new structures or repair damaged ones. Material is added to the locally molten part in a continual process, similar to the way an FDM uses a print head to deposit thermoplastic. This process family is typically used for extremely large prints. Not known for its accuracy so much as its speed and ability to build upon existing structures, Directed Energy Deposition systems are sometimes coupled with CNC machine tools in the same manufacturing cell to create higher tolerance parts.
