Ever wonder what the typical manufacturing flow looks like for parts produced with metal 3D printing? From modeling to melting to machining, we will walk you through the steps, equipment, and some of our own lessons learned while 3D printing thousands of high-quality metal parts. Using GE’s X Line 2000R series machine as the catalyst, we’ll show you how we 3D printed a 2022 aluminum replica trophy for the hit show, BattleBots. Leveraging process controls and high-end equipment, this entire project took around three weeks. Come hear more as we dive into the technical details of this journey.
