We studied the 3-Dimensional Printing method to fabricate the metallic components from powder. The laminating fabrication by starch-coated metal powder was proposed as rapid prototyping. In this research, the effects of the drying time, laminating pitch, size of adherent powder, and the starch-coating thickness on the handling of green body were investigated. Based on the obtained results, the optimum process conditions were determined.
