Desktop Metal Studio 3D Printer

At this point in the game, 3D printing has become fairly commonplace. Even if you’re not entirely sure how it works, you’ve probably at least heard of it. What you might not have heard of, however, is one of these devices that can create objects in metal. Well, that’s about to change thanks to Desktop Metal’s Studio 3D Printer.

The full system actually comes in two parts – the desk-friendly printer that creates the pieces itself and something called a sintering furnace. And while they are separate, they were designed together and need to be used in conjunction to properly work. You see, the printer only builds the parts, whereas the sinter helps properly bind them, separate them from excess, and heat treats the material, making it stronger and longer lasting. The benefit of both machines is that they are far smaller and less expensive than current industry standards – nearly 10x cheaper, in fact. And they can still make complex parts in your choice of metal; be it aluminum, stainless steel, titanium, or otherwise. For small design houses and independent makers alike, these machines will be indispensable for both prototyping and small-scale production. Reservations for the Studio System start at $1,000 – but you can expect the total price to be much higher.
