We are A Metal Filament Manufacturer
of 3D Printing Materials

We create and sell materials for metal 3D printing including metal filaments, custom metal filaments, special order filaments, and sintering furnaces. Our solutions for 3D printing metal are safe and cost effective.

Our materials change the way work is done throughout a range of industries and educational institutions.

Patented high metal filaments that will create pure metal 3D Prints with common, off-the-shelf FDM printers.

At The Virtual Foundry our purpose is to solve and simplify problems through innovative 3D printing materials. We continue to build key partnerships with businesses and people who understand that our products expand the value of their products. We steadily work to improve and grow our line of metal 3D printing metal filaments, accessories, and high capacity sintering furnaces.

3D printing with metal filaments makes it relatively simple to fabricate shapes and another advantage 3D printing with more than one metal at a time. It isn’t possible to cast two metals at the same time [in a foundry].

The need to move ideas ever more quickly through systems (fail fast) and always with an eye toward economy (fail cheap) leads to a necessity for easy metal parts. The use of metal filaments in FFF desktop and large-scale printers offers advantages that other, more established applications just can't match. Safety, cost and ease-of-entry are all important considerations when deciding which technology to pursue.

New Metal Filament

Aluminum Filament contains around 65% metal. Once fired in a kiln, the result is 100% metal.

 

ZF North America 3D Prints Parts Using Copper Filament

Open architecture 3D printing metal parts using our Copper Filament Filamet™. This Video was provided to us by ZF North America. The 3D printed copper metal part was designed by their team and printed onsite, it will be used for automotive transmission development.

TVF is currently working with labs inside of companies like ZF North America, NASA and The Department of Defense to bring its patented technology to full potential.

Metal 3D Printing on a desktop printer

Metal Filament

Filamet™ has the highest metal content of any metal filament on the market today. 3D print metal, debind, and sinter prints in one of our sintering furnaces to create 100% pure metal parts.

Our metal filaments are a trademarked material called Filamet™.

Our materials can be used on any 3D Printer safely and at a lower cost than other 3D printing solutions.

FilaWarmer for filament and PLA

FilaWarmer

One of the most important parts of the 3D Printing process occurs on the path from the spool to the printer.

We have created a solution to improve the metal 3D printing process. The one and only solution for this is our FilaWarmer.

The FilaWarmer dries and tempers the plastic binder, increasing flexibility, and tensile strength, which eliminates filament breakage.
