Currently DMLS metals require a direct quote process and are not available in the Auto-Quoting Model Editor system. In order to obtain a quote for a 3d print in a specific DMLS metal, please email the model or link to download the model to firstname.lastname@example.org
along with details of your quote request such as quantity and scale. A member of the Kraftwurx staff will contact you with a formal quote to produce the part in the given material.
"The DMLS Ti64 doesn't have a unit price -- can I expect it to be much more expensive than the DMLS Al?"
-DMLS Titanium Ti64 is more expensive than DMLS Aluminum.
"What is the difference in the Cast Al and DMLS Al process? They both seem powder-based and this confuses me, but I am most interested in any distinction in surface quality or geometric constraints."
-DMLS metals are laser sintered powdered metals. Cast metals are lost-wax investment casting processed metals (molten metals).
"I am not too familiar with the DMLS process. How possible is it to remove "support" material from small cavities and holes in a part, that would not be easily mechanically accessible?"
-DMLS does build hard supports inside cavities and under-hangs that must be removed by machine processing.
-Cast metals are lost-wax investment casting processed metals. Cast metals do not require supports.
