With expanded production capability, Desktop Metal is now shipping the Studio System at a rate of 550 complete systems per year, with two-week delivery time for new orders to customers throughout the US and Canada.

Many leading companies such as Ford, Google’s ATAP, Goodyear, BMW, ProtoLabs, Owens Corning, L3, TerraPower, Medtronic, Continental AG, Applied Materials, TECT Aerospace, US Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, MITRE and leading educational institutions such as MIT, University of Texas, Texas A&M and Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School, the nation’s first high school to install a metal 3D printer, are already benefitting from the ease of use and accessibility provided by the Studio System.

In the last six months alone, more than 8,000 parts have been fabricated by the Studio System globally. They range from:

  • functional prototyping – extruder nozzles and shock absorber pistons
  • jigs & fixtures – robotic end effectors and brake caliper fixture
  • manufacturing tooling – zipper molds inserts and extrusion dies
  • low volume production – gears and motor mounts

Customers who are using the Studio System are also experiencing drastic cost reduction with the fabricated parts, some as much as 90% relative to machining and selective laser melting (SLM). Parts production time have also been sped up significantly – instead of the usual months or days, the Studio System takes just mere days to accomplish it.
