Metal 3D Printing On Demand

ExOne® Adoption Centers specialize in 3D printing metal parts. Using revolutionary binder jetting technology and industry-grade materials from traditional powder metallurgy feedstocks, we can work with you to determine the volume and timeframe required for the metal parts you need.

A Highly Customizable, Consistent Manufacturing Alternative

Metal 3D printing creates efficiencies by consistently printing parts to the exact specifications of your design file. And, since our process relies solely on the design file to direct production, your designers have the freedom to make quick adjustments to the file if you want to alter a component for the next run. Whether you’re testing prototypes or designing the next iteration of your product for full-scale manufacturing, ExOne metal 3D printing services can support your production requirements.

Metal 3D printing eliminates the need for tooling, support structures or build plates. This makes directly printing metal parts a fast and cost-effective method of serial production when compared to both traditional and other additive processes. Our metal 3D printing materials are designed to work with existing industry processes so the parts you receive are set up for system integration. Plus, our finishing capabilities mean your parts order is ready or near ready for direct commerce applications when you receive it.

FAQs for 3D Printing Metal Parts on Demand


How do I know I need a printed metal part?

ExOne offers on-demand 3D printing for metal parts as well as sand castings and specialty materials. The most common application of our 3D metal printing is the manufacture of customized, complex parts. We can handle a variety of throughput requests from rapid product development to serial production, and have finishing options that will help you efficiently bring your part from conception to market. Our customers also leverage our 3D metal printing service to create prototypes or conceptual models.

Will I require finishing services when 3D printing metal parts?

ExOne® metal Parts on Demand are “near-net,” meaning some finishing may be desired or required. We offer a full array of finishing services that can be added to our on-demand metal 3D printing packages. Please contact us for details.

Will I need assistance with creating a digital file?

ExOne accepts a wide range of digital modeling file types, though STL is most preferred, and files can be easily uploaded via our Request a Quote form. If you need assistance creating a file, please inquire about our design services for 3D metal printing.

When will my parts be available?

Standard lead time for 3D printing metal parts is 10 working days, but will depend on the volume and complexity of the job. Rush services are available, so reach out to get a customized quote for 3D metal print service.

Can you accommodate the volume of my order?

Iterative or individually customized parts can be managed in a single print run, but 3D metal printing services are also available for serial production. Whether manufacturing lots of 1 or 1,000, the binder jetting process is the most economical choice for 3D printing metal Parts on Demand.
