BASF’s Ultrafuse 316L filament is a metal filament that is specifically designed to be debound and sintered, leaving your printed part nearly 100% solid 316 stainless steel. The best part about this material is that it can be printed on virtually any desktop 3D printer. To learn how to 3D print with metal filament, check out our article here or watch the video below.


Combining the processes of Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) and Metal Injection Molding (MIM), metal 3D printing on a desktop 3D printer is now even easier and more attainable for the average maker with BASF's Ultrafuse 316L Metal Filament! Use any FFF 3D printer like the BCN3D Sigmax R19, Ultimaker S5 or Pulse to produce metal-polymer parts that are industrially debound and sintered, leaving a final product that is nearly 100% solid 316L stainless steel. Print it. Ship it out to be debound and sintered. Receive a functional metal part ready to go. Investing in BASF's Ultrafuse 316L Metal Filament is the ideal convenience and economic choice for any 3D maker interested in advancing their prototypes to the next level through metal desktop 3D printing.
