Cpl. Elizabeth Patterman, a Marine with 1st Supply Battalion, is decaking the “green” parts from the build unit in Petaluma, California, May 26, 2021. A green part is formed by metal powder held together with a binding agent. By decaking the tool, Patterman is removing any fine or residual powder from the part before it goes through the binder removal, or debinding, process. The debinding process removes the binding agent completely from the part before it goes through sintering. (Courtesy photo)
