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.
