An End-to-End Solution

Metal 3D Printing, Advanced Materials, Powerful Software and Sintering


 

Desktop Metal 3D Printing Studio 3d Printer

The Desktop Metal Studio 3D Printer


Similar to fused deposition modeling (FDM) technology, the studio 3D printer is a safe extrusion based process. Produce near-net-shape metal parts with the resolution and accuracy needed for functional prototyping


How It Works

The Studio Desktop Metal 3D printer extrudes bound metal rods similar to a plastic FDM system. Unlike laser-based DMLS 3D printers that selectively bond metal powders the Studio system does not require any special safety or facility requirements and creates the opportunity to produce closed-cell infill for lightweight structures as well as work with a wider range of metal alloys.

Built to Perform


Powerful software creates build and sinter plans for every project and material. Automative supports and control parameters ensure a seamless 3D printing experience.

 


3D print up to 24 cubic inches per day in a wide variety of metal materials. Maximum resolution for the printer is 50 μm

 


The motion control system was build with encoded balls screws instead of belts, and combined with auto leveling and a heated build area you get excellent geometric fidelity and build success rates.


   

 
 

The Sintering Furnace

Desktop Metal 3D Printing Sintering Furnace


Introducing the world's first office-friendly sintering furnace. This fully automated system with closed loop thermal control and a small enough footprint for an office delivers industrial-strength sintering. 


How It Works

The furnace addition to the Desktop Metal Studio 3D printer combines SiC heating elements with high-powered microwaves to sinter the 3D printed parts after the primary binder is removed. With cloud connectivity, the furnace creates unique temperature profiles that are tuned to every build and material. It uniformly heats parts to just below their melting point removing the binder and fusing the small metal particles to form dense parts without the residual stresses introduced in laser-based systems.

Make Metal Work Faster

No more waiting for machined or cast parts. Iterate faster by printing highly complex metal parts–without leaving the office.
 
Desktop Metal Material Properties  


Superior Properties

Similar to metal injection molding (MIM), the Desktop Metal Studio System leverages bulk sintering to achieve densities greater than 98%. Part performance is similar to wrought alloys and it is possible to tune part density with closed-cell infill.

Materials Available
 

17-4 PH Stainless

316L Stainless

H13 Tool Steel

4140 Chrome Moly

Copper

Inconel 625 Superalloy

Kovar F-15


Additional Materials: By enabling the use of metal powders from the MIM industry, our systems have access to a wide range of existing materials—from steels and aluminum to superalloys and titanium.

Desktop Metal Net Shape Parts

 


Near-Net-Shape Parts

The Desktop Metal Studio system produces near-net-shape metal parts with the accuracy and layer resolution needed for functional prototyping and a variety of other applications. A seamless 3D printing experience, from printing through to sintering, is created with powerful software and automatic support generation. 

Tight Tolerances

± .002 in/in (geometry dependent)

Desktop Metal Easy Support Removal  

Remove Supports by Hand

The Desktop Metal Studio system does not require any wire EDM or machining to remove support structures. Proproetary seperable supports make it possible to remove support by hand because it is no bonded to the part. A sa result, highly complex parts and print-in-place assemblies can be easily printed and put to use.

The Workflow


The Desktop Metal Studio System is the only complete solution for metal 3D printing. With a seamless integration between printer and furnace you have precise control of the entire workflow, from concept to fuly finished metal 3D printed part. 
 

 
Digital Model Green Part Sintered Part Finished Part
The software accepts native CAD file formats–not just STL. Web-based, it runs on a remote or local server so that it is possible to manage jobs from any device securely. Similar to FDM, the Studio printer shapes a "green" part layer-by-layer by heating and extruding specially formulated bound metal rods. The green part can be easily sanded by hand. A portion of the plastic binder is first removed. The furnace then heats the part to temperatures near melting, causing the metal powder to densify to 96-99.8%. Apply optional finishing methods such as machining or bead blasting for critical tolerances and finishes. Supports are removed by hand.

Software-Controlled Workflow

The Desktop Metal Studio system was designed as a complete workflow, with no third party equipment required. Every stage of the 3D printing process is fully automated and managed by software, making it simple to go from CAD to metal part.

 

Quick Material Changes

Compared to laser based systems, where material changes can pose safety risks and can take a week or more, the Studio 3D printer was designed to have swappable, safe-to-handle material catridges and quick release print heads.

Office-Friendly Sintering

A first of its kind, the sintering furnace has swappable aluminum gas canisters and optional hook ups for simple to manage gas. Built-in effluent filters, binder cold traps, safety fail safes, and detection systems make this system safe to use on the shop floor. 

 

Expert Metallurgy Built-In

The Desktop Metal sintering oven combines unique materials profiles with part data to construct sintering plans for every part. With closed loop thermal control, real-time heating regulation throughout the sintering cycle is enabled ensuring every part is uniformly heated and cooled.
