Say goodbye to operators' burden or process inefficiency. Just Fabricate®.

The Desktop Metal Studio 3D printer includes Fabricate software, which enables a simple and seamless workflow from digital files to sintered parts. It is a software-controlled workflow that allows for automatic print, debind, and sinter job creation based on the exact parts to be processed. It will create the machine instructions for each process step and track the parts throughout their processing.

Simplify Metal 3D Printing

From File to Sintered Part.

The Fabricate software is the brain of the Studio System 2 metal 3D printer. It automatically scales your part, orients it for print and sintering success, generates separable supports, and applies expert metallurgy to optimize fabrication. Simply upload your design and follow the workflow for step-by-step guidance. You don’t need to be an expert metallurgist or machinist to create complex metal parts.

A closer look into Fabricate’s capabilities

Build Generation

Going from a digital model to a final sintered part is very easy, as Fabricate accepts various native CAD formats. Just drag and drop files to load parts into the software for automatic orientation. The software will analyze your print for each production step – printing and sintering – to determine the most stable position and orientation for the highest quality results. You can also manually orient parts in three axes to optimize total fabrication time, surface quality, or sintering stability and scale any parts in the build box. Fabricate features all the settings users of traditional FFF printing will recognize, such as shell layers, infill settings, and various support settings.


Fabricate_Build Generation


Imported models are sliced and turned into a 3D printing file optimized for the Studio System.

You can view an interactive toolpath preview to validate the part’s internal structure and inspect it layer-by-layer with options to view individual properties such as infill or support.

Support Generation

The secure, web-based software constructs build plans from STL or CAD files and automatically generates separable supports and control parameters based on part geometry and material. Each part is analyzed to generate a custom advanced support structure with ceramic interface layers based on its profile to enable separable supports. Besides preventing the part from collapsing, the smart supports feature ensures that supports are easily removed without mold locking.

Job Creation, Monitoring & Management

You can build jobs with one or more parts to be sent directly to your Studio System metal 3D printer.  At any time, you can view the status of these jobs from Fabricate. Fabricate Cloud has the additional ability to send email notifications when job statuses change. Management functions include allowing a job to be re-sent and part statuses to be adjusted to a different step in the workflow.
