3D printing with metals

In selective laser melting, metal powder is fused to a solid object. Our systems are always technically up to date and achieve the highest precision of detail. At the PROTIQ Marketplace you can have produced objects made of stainless steel, tool steel, aluminum, Inconel, cobalt chrome, and copper. Our copper is highly electrically conductive and opens up new application areas, for example in the metalworking industry. All 3D-printed metal products are media-dense and have high stability, which qualifies them for industrial use. Depending on the material, you can have wall thicknesses as low as 0.3 mm produced at the PROTIQ Marketplace.

3D data check

The data check on the PROTIQ Marketplace is always done automatically. This procedure guarantees a consistently high quality. After uploading your file to our server, the PROTIQ software checks the file for manufacturability. Small errors are repaired automatically. In the case of large errors, you will be informed before printing and asked for approval by means of a preview.

TIP: Upload your file and have it automatically repaired by the software. You will then be able to download the repaired file under the item “File Info.” In addition, the file is saved in your account.
