DMLS 3D Printing Services
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) is a metal 3D printing technology that selectively fuses a fine metal powder in aluminium or stainless steel. This 3D printing technology is used to manufacture both prototypes and production parts, especially with very complex features and all-in-one assemblies.
Advantages of DMLS with Xometry
We can quickly produce both prototypes and large batches thanks to the largest manufacturing network in Europe, with over 2000 vetted partners
You will get your 3D printing fast delivered in as fast as 3-5 days.
We have strong QA procedures, controlled by an in-house team of QA engineers, which allows us to deliver high quality parts.
Engineering Check & Status Updates
All designs are checked by engineers before they’re sent for 3D printing. After confirming your order, you will receive status updates on your production.

Pros & Cons of DMLS 3D Printing
|Complex Geometries: DMLS makes it possible to manufacture parts that cannot be produced with subtractive manufacturing||Surface roughness is higher than with CNC machining|
|Powdered metals used for DMLS 3D printing possess strong mechanical properties||Higher costs than other manufacturing technologies|
|Variety of mechanical and electro-chemical post-processing options applicable for final part enhancement||Limited volume size|
