BASF Metal Filament

BASF Ultrafuse 17-4 PH Metal 3D Printing Filament is an industrial material designed for digital fabrication on virtually any desktop 3D printer. When debound and sintered, users are left with a 3D printed part made of nearly 100% solid 17-4 stainless steel. Every spool comes with one BASF Ultrafuse 17-4 PH Processing Ticket, which covers one debinding and sintering run of up to 1kg of 3D printed Ultrafuse 17-4 PH green parts. For best bed adhesion results, we recommend a glass bed with Dimafix. Learn how to 3D print with metal filament by checking out our article here or watching the video below.


Combining the processes of Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) and Metal Injection Molding (MIM), metal additive manufacturing on a desktop 3D printer is now even easier and more attainable for advanced makers with BASF's Ultrafuse 17-4 PH Metal 3D Printing Filament! Use any FFF 3D printer like the BCN3D Epsilon W50, Ultimaker S5 or Pulse to produce metal-polymer parts that are industrially debound and sintered, leaving a final product that is nearly 100% solid 17-4 PH stainless steel. Print your parts at your office. Ship them out to be debound and sintered using the one free BASF Ultrafuse Processing Ticket that is included with every purchased spool. Receive a functional metal part ready to go. Investing in BASF's Ultrafuse 17-4 PH Metal 3D Printing Filament is the ideal convenience and cost-effective choice for any maker interested in advancing their prototypes to the next level through metal desktop 3D printing.
