This presentation will discuss a major advance in materials science for metal 3D printing that drops the cost of materials by an order of magnitude, while opening up the possibilities for material variety and quality, making Metal 3D Printing more accessible for engineers and product designers. We will present our novel approach to developing materials for 3D Printing that will allow engineers and product designers to print with a greater breadth of alloys. We will end with a focus on the science behind this innovation and the road ahead.
