Shop System 

The world’s first metal binder jetting system designed to bring metal 3D printing to machine shops.

Shop System™

The Shop System™ introduces high quality binder jetting to an entirely new market of machine shops. Shops can now cost effectively 3D print end use metal parts with unparalleled speed and productivity


Easy to Operate

Designed with the modern machine shop in mind, the Shop System™ is built to fit seamlessly into your workflow. Produce parts with superior surface finish and resolution versus laser-based 3D printing systems at a fraction of the cost.

Optimized powders & parameters

Get started quickly with a turnkey, end-to-end 3D printing solution. The Shop System™ features Desktop Metal-engineered powders and processing parameters, optimized to deliver exceptional part quality and ensure part-to-part repeatability.

Unparalleled Productivity

Use 3D printing to amplify your shop’s output. Effortlessly print end-use metal parts with the quality, surface finish and tolerances required to co-exist with machining.

The Shop System™ is a tooling-free manufacturing process. Change over to a new job at the press of a button and process multiple complex jobs without the need for custom setups.


1- Printer

The Shop System™ printer features the most advanced printhead on the market with over 70,000 nozzles jetting 1.2pL droplets at nearly 10 kHZ to achieve high resolution, 3D printed parts at a fraction of the cost of laser-based systems.¹
