I am looking at getting some items 3D printed in stainless steel and want to know who in the world are considered experts in this field?

Thanks in advance,

Sam

There are many manufacturers and service providers for stainless steel printing. They all have different strengths. Some are better at details and small parts and others are focusing on high strength. What is your application / requirements ? Is it an art object or something for function? What is the size?

Steel printing:VW, M-Benz, Audi

When you make cars in small numbers, you need to print certain parts because you save time and toolin cost.

Thanks for your reply. The part we are thinking of printing is around 70x70x400mm. Due to the nature of the design, it is very costly to machine from billet. It will be required to act structurally as an anchor to hold tanks, so the metallurgy is important as well. It will need to have threads and tolerances to +/- 0.1mm

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
