ZF North America 3D Prints Metal Parts Using Copper Filament
Can you 3D print metal?
Yes, using our open architecture 3D printing solutions you can produce metal parts. This part is printed with 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.
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 metal filaments that expand additive manufacturing applications, while lowering costs. 3D print parts using our metal filaments to create pure metal 3D prints with common, off-the-shelf FDM unmodified printers.
At The Virtual Foundry our purpose is to solve and simplify problems through innovative 3D printing materials. Our focus is to build key partnerships with businesses and people who understand that our 3D Metal Printing materials 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].
Full cycle solutions that including debinding and sintering equipment letting anyone 3D Print pure metal parts in-house for prototyping and short-run manufacturing.

Metal Filaments for 3D Printing
We offer Complete Metal 3D Printing Solutions for Individuals & Organizations
Eliminate tooling and machining costs for short run manufacturing, prototyping, and one-off metal part needs. The Virtual Foundry metal filaments enables any Fused Deposition Modeling 3D printer to produce metal objects at a fraction of the cost.
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.
Once these 3D printed objects are fired in a sintering furnace or high capacity kiln, the result is 100% pure metal.
