An end-to-end solution

The Studio System is a three-part solution that automates metal 3D printing. Tightly integrated through Desktop Metal’s cloud-based software, it delivers a seamless workflow for printing complex metal parts in-house—from digital file to sintered part.

Printer

Unlike laser-based systems that selectively melt metal powder, the printer extrudes bound metal rods—similar to how an FDM printer works. This eliminates the safety requirements often associated with metal 3D printing while enabling new features like the use of closed-cell infill for lightweight strength.

Debinder

The debinder prepares green parts for sintering by dissolving primary binder. With a low emission design, it requires no external ventilation and is safe for an office environment. Automatic fluid distillation and recycling means there is no need to refill between each cycle.

Furnace

Fully-automated and sized to fit through an office door, the furnace delivers industrial-strength sintering in an office-friendly package. Built-in temperature profiles tuned to every build and material ensure uniform heating and cooling without the residual stresses introduced in laser-based systems.

New features with Studio System+

 

The new system features the same office-friendly metal 3D printing as the original Studio System with new print capabilities and a scalable design for increased throughput.

Print at higher resolution.

A new swappable 250μm printhead with supporting software profiles enables new geometries and applications—achieving smaller parts and fine features with an improved surface finish.

Watch a live stream of the build.

An in-chamber build plate camera captures video of the part as it prints — viewable in a web browser. This gives the user greater insight into their print and the ability to monitor print success.

Debind and sinter in bulk.

New stackable shelving increases part capacity of the debinder and furnace for greater throughput. Increased workload volume addresses bottlenecks typical at the debind and sinter stages.

Produce even better parts.

A new retort box design supports thermal uniformity—resulting in higher-quality parts.

Reduce operational costs.

External gas connections give the option to reduce the cost of consumables and achieve a lower cost-per-part.

Configure a Studio Fleet™.

New custom-configurable hardware solutions increase efficiency for low volume production of high-quality metal parts.
