STUDIO

Office-friendly metal 3D printing

Introducing the Studio System. Designed as an end-to-end solution, it's the only way to print complex metal parts in-house.


10x cheaper

The Studio system is up to ten times cheaper than comparable laser-based systems. With purchase and subscription pricing options, it’s the only metal 3D printing system that is cost-effective for engineering teams.

Pricing Sheet

Safe

We eliminated lasers and powders to make the Studio system safe for any facility. Unlike other systems, there are no special facilities or 3rd party equipment required–just power and an internet connection.

An end-to-end solution Print and sinter

The printer shapes the parts

The Studio printer is similar to the safest and most widely used 3D printing process–Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM).

How it works

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

The furnace sinters the parts

We designed the first office-friendly sintering furnace. Fully automated with closed loop thermal control and sized to fit through an office door, it delivers industrial-strength sintering in an office-friendly package.

How it works

The furnace combines SiC heating elements with high-powered microwaves to sinter printed parts after primary binder is removed. 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.

Furnace Spec Sheet


Make metal work faster

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

Superior properties

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

Near-net-shape parts

The Studio System produces near-net-shape metal parts, delivering the resolution and accuracy needed for functional prototyping. Sophisticated software constructs print and sinter plans for every build and material–automatically generating supports and control parameters to ensure a seamless, simple experience from printing through sintering.

Tight tolerances

± .002 in/in (geometry dependent)

Prototype and mass produce with the same alloys

We designed our systems to use the same MIM (Metal Injection Molding) materials. This opens up an ecosystem of low-cost, high-quality alloys with a mature supply chain and well-studied process controls.

200+ compatible alloys

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.

Up to 80% cheaper

Laser-based systems require specially formulated, cost-prohibitive metal powders. We use metal powder with a wide particle size distribution, enabling much lower materials costs.
