3D Printing Of Pure Metal Objects: Filamet

Filamet Lets You 3D Print Pure Metal Objects with Your Desktop 3D Printer

Tess [] | June 30, 2016

Just over a year ago, we wrote about an especially promising Kickstarter campaign for a metal 3D printing filament called Filamet. Developed by Wisconsin-based startup The Virtual Foundry, Filamet offered makers a way to print almost entirely metallic objects directly from their desktop 3D printers. As one can imagine, the crowdfunding campaign was a huge success, raising over $30,000. Now, and excitingly for those who did not get on the crowdfunding train, The Virtual Foundry is bringing its innovative metal 3D printing material to the public after having fulfilled its backer rewards.
