This research work presents a novel drop-on-demand (DoD) technology for the spatially controlled deposition of high-temperature droplets of molten metal for the production of 3D objects in both single and multiple materials. The key aspects of the printing process of two exemplar materials, silver and tin, will be presented. It will be shown how the deposition process can be controlled for the realisation of accurate functionally graded metallic parts of various geometrical complexity. The authors will then present the challenges that arise during printing of dissimilar materials through the characterization of interfaces and the parts realised droplet by droplet.
