Studio System 2
Office-friendly metal 3D printing in just 2 steps — Print. Sinter.
The Studio System 2
The Studio System 2 was designed from the ground-up to fit into your team’s workflow. With no solvents, no loose metal powders or lasers and very little operator intervention required, the system makes it easy to start printing metal parts - no third-party equipment or special facilities required.
Print to Sinter
The Studio System 2 unlocks two-step processing with a fully re-engineered materials library. New material formulations allow printed parts to be placed directly into the furnace, without the need for the typical solvent debind phase. The result is an easy-to-manage two-step process with a nearly hands-free experience.
Software controlled workflow
You don’t need to be an expert metallurgist or machinist to create complex metal parts. With our Fabricate software, native to Studio System 2, all aspects of part creation - from printing through sintering - are automated. The software 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 onboard UI for step-by-step guidance.
Smart Separable Supports
The Studio System 2 features Desktop Metal’s second-generation Separable Supports technology, which automatically generates seams throughout support structures, and prints a reformulated ceramic interface material between the support structure and the part, allowing parts to easily be removed by hand.
Unlike laser-based systems that selectively melt metal powder, the Studio System extrudes bound metal rods—similar to how an FDM printer works. This eliminates many of the safety requirements often associated with metal 3D printing while enabling new features like the use of fully closed-cell infill for lightweight strength.
Designed to be the easiest to use sintering furnace made, the Studio System 2 furnace first heats parts to remove all binders from parts, then ramps up the temperature to near-melting to deliver industrial-strength sintering in an office-friendly package. Built-in temperature profiles tuned to every build and material ensure uniform heating and cooling without the residual stresses introduced in laser-based systems.
Developed by an in-house team of world-leading materials scientists and 3D printing innovators - as well as industry partners around the globe - Desktop Metal materials are designed to ensure print success and produce high-quality metal and composite parts.
In addition to materials that are already available, our team is always working to develop new materials and processes to make 3D printing accessible to all industries and applications.
