Metal additive manufacturing is the process by which metal parts are joined or solidified from a feedstock. Also known as 3D printing, metal additive manufacturing machines can use a variety of processes to build parts. In this track, we discuss the types of metal additive manufacturing available today, the benefits of 3D printing in metal, metals that can be additively manufactured, and the Markforged additive manufacturing process.
