The need for concept designing has increased considerably in recent years owing to the demand for customization. Currently, 3D printing allows the designer to create contemporary, lightweight yet complex designs that can be customized and selected in a digital format and then sent for ‘printing’. The future, however, holds a much more upshot division of technology that will allow direct printing on metallic powders. Yet another breakthrough in the manufacturing industry that will lessen the gap between digital design and product-inhand includes laser sintering and electron beam melting of powdered metal. The input for this process ranges from Gold to Silver to other precious alloys, and hybrid metals in a powdered form. The output from such printers requires minimal post processing, and are most of the times ready to be shipped within a day.
DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering) involves using the STL file in a CAM setup wherein parts are built layer by layer by melting and solidifying of fine precious metal power through a focused laser beam. Once in progress, the cycle can be continued round the clock with minimal operator intervention. It is not from a purely design perspective that this phenomenal new technology makes the impossible possible. From concept to ready-to-finish product in a single day, with almost nil need for a laborious production/post production process, DMLS also brings the ability to rapidly build prototypes, test and change the design, without the need for any other tooling or mould.
