Desktop Metal Studio System 3D Printer

The Desktop Metal DM Studio System is the world’s first affordable, office-friendly metal 3D printing system. Safe and simple to use, the DM Studio System was designed to bring metal 3D printing to the shop floor by allowing engineering and design teams to make metal parts faster, without the need for special facilities or dedicated operators.

The Printer

The Desktop Metal DM Studio System is the world’s first affordable, office-friendly metal 3D printing system. Safe and simple to use, the DM Studio System was designed to bring metal 3D printing to the shop floor by allowing engineering and design teams to make metal parts faster, without the need for special facilities or dedicated operators.

The DM Studio System is a complete solution designed around the premise that metal 3D printing should be easier, less expensive and more accessible for design and engineering teams.

It’s built on a cloud-based software architecture, the DM Studio System enables the user to go directly from CAD to part. By having one software platform across the system, designers and engineers can work with one digital file for a metal part throughout its entire lifecycle instead of needing to use 3rd party equipment and software to get a final part.

Very similar to FDM (fused deposition Modelling) the Studio printer prints out a “green” part layer-by-layer by heating and extruding specially formulated bound metal rods. After this process and once the part has been printed out on the bed, it is sintered. A portion of the plastic binder is first removed, and then the furnace heats the part to temperatures close to melting point, thus causing the metal powder to densify.

The Furnace

Desktop Metal designed the first office-friendly sintering furnace with a peak temperature of 1400º C, allowing for the sintering of a wide range of metals.  Fully automated with closed looped thermal control and sized to fit through an office door, the furnace delivers industrial-strength sintering in an office-friendly package. 

Cloud-connected, the furnace has temperature profiles that are tuned to every build and material. It uniformly heats parts to just below their melting point, removing binder and fusing metal particles to form fully dense parts without the residual stresses introduced in laser-based systems.
