LEARN ABOUT 3D PRINTING

Desktop Metal 3D Printer

       The Studio System + printer was designed for quick installation and a simplified user experience. Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is the building block from which Desktop Metal developed Bound Metal Deposition (BMD). The BMD process addressed the long held industry struggle to find an office friendly system while providing unmatched reliability and repeatability. Laser-based systems that melt powder carry additional ventilation/respiratory hazards. 

B    BMD uses polymer bound metal rods, eliminating the safety requirements normally associated with metal 3D printing. The Studio System + separates itself from competitors by allowing users to create lightweight parts through the use of closed cell infill and hollow cavities. Previously unavailable with other technologies. High-resolution nozzles allow for greater detail and improved dimensional accuracy.

       Metal 3D printing has never been easier or more accessible with Desktop Metal’s groundbreaking office friendly technology.

Desktop Metal Debinder

The Studio System +™ Debinder is the second stage of the metal additive manufacturing process. Parts here are given a bath in a specially formulated “debind fluid”. This fluid removes any polymer binding material and creates open pores in the part which is now ready for sintering.

The Studio System +™ Debinder uses a process that ensures end users do not come in contact with any harmful fluids or gasses. Keeping in line with the goal of providing an office friendly solution. Automatic distillation and recycling of fluid means there is no need to refill the reservoir after each cycle.

Parts go in dry. Parts come out dry.

Desktop Metal Furnace

The Studio System +™ Furnace is able to reach temperatures of up to 1,400c°(2,552f°) which cleanly removes all remaining secondary binder. What you’re left with is fused metal particles with part densities up to 99.8%. 

The furnace is connected to the other parts of the solution so that the user works from an automated system where shrinkage, debind time and furnace temperature are all calculated. What sets the Desktop Metal solution apart from the rest is that all components are designed to be user and office friendly, accommodating the engineers of today and tomorrow. 

Desktop Metal – Bracket Support

The support removal part of the process: This is again another area that Desktop Metal shines. With traditional Metal 3D Printers support removal is often done using traditional manufacturing tools to machine off the metal supports. With Desktop Metals technology supports are removed by hand quickly and easily!

Work With CADimensions

We finally have the best 3D printer of 2018, our Desktop Metal 3D Printer! It took a little longer than expected but the wait was worth it. There is something particularly satisfying about holding a metal 3D printed object and we couldn’t wait to have that luxury in our own office!

There weren’t too many hiccups while installing our new 3D Printer but the process wasn’t that difficult. The most difficult part was setting up the networking. Knowing the process now, we would have pre-arranged to have IT support on call while we were setting up. In our case, being cloud-based, caused the most confusion. It was honestly a breeze once IT was involved.

In addition to be a partner to industry leading companies, CADimensions also offers 3D printing services. Click below to educate yourself on 3D printing or let us know if we can help with a project.
