Additive Manufacturing Education

We continue to partner with Educational Institutions across the country. Our metal filaments and materials can be printed on any FDM printer to create pure metal parts. 3D metal printing using our materials offers real world applications using cutting edge technology.


3D in chromed letters - 3D rendering

Auburn University and Huntsville City Schools

Huntsville City Schools have become the first K-12 school district in the nation to partner with Auburn University’s National Center for Additive Manufacturing Excellence (NCAME) alongside the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Command (AMRDEC) to further education and workforce development in the field of additive manufacturing.
