Various additive manufacturing/3D printing processes use metal to create objects layer by layer. These include direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) and select laser melting (SLM) that use lasers to sinter or melt metal powders, methods that shoot metal particles at high speeds to build up surfaces, as well as newer extrusion-based metal additive manufacturing (AM) processes that hold the metal powder in plastics until being melted and fused into a part.
