High quality parts

The Studio System delivers near-net-shape parts with densities between 96-99% - depending on the alloy.
Separable Supports™
Introducing Separable Supports™. Designed to simplify post-processing, the Studio System prints supports . with a patent-pending interface layer that does not bond to the metal part. This makes it possible to separate supports by hand.

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 debinder prepares green parts for sintering

The debinder prepares green parts for sintering by dissolving primary binder. With a low emission design, it requires no external ventilation and is safe for an office environment. Automatic fluid distillation and recycling means there is no need to refill between each cycle.

The furnace sinters the parts

Fully-automated with closed-loop thermal control, the furnace is the first to deliver industrial-strength sintering and an office-friendly package. Built-in profiles are tuned to every build and material to ensure uniform heating and cooling without the residual stresses introduced in laser-based systems.

GAS CONNECTION: 2 x 900L onboard canisters
PEAK TEMP: 1400°C

The Process
The Studio system is the only end-to-end solution for metal 3D printing. The printer and furnace were designed together, making it possible for precise control of the entire workflow automatically.
1 PREP

Secure, web-based software constructs build plans from STL or CAD files, automatically generating supports and control parameters based on part geometry and material.
2 PRINT

Layer by layer, a green part is shaped by extruding bound metal rodsmetal powder held together by wax and polymer bindersin a process called Bound Metal Deposition™.
3 DEBIND

The green part is immersed in proprietary debind fluid, dissolving primary binder and creating an open pore channel structure throughout the part in preparation for sintering.
4 SINTER

As the part is heated to temperatures near melting, remaining binder is removed and metal particles fuse together causing the part to densify up to 96-99.8%.

Materials

The Studio System brings a wide range of critical alloys to 3D printing including stainless steels, copper, and tool steels. Each alloy undergoes rigorous qualification by world-leading materials scientists, and our core materials consistently meet or exceed industry standards.
