Metal X 3D Printing
The Markforged Metal X 3D printer is based on the company’s composite 3D printing technology but uses metal powder instead of composite materials. The metal 3D printing process used in the Markforged Metal X, called Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM), involves the process of using a bound metal powder rod embedded inside a plastic filament. Similar to more common 3D printing technologies like FDM, the metal parts are built up layer by layer, but compensations are made during the design stage to account for part shrinkage.
