01 Printer

Unlike laser-based systems that selectively melt metal powder,
the printer extrudes bound metal rods—similar to how an FDM
printer works. This eliminates the safety requirements often
associated with metal 3D printing while enabling new features
like the use of closed-cell infill for lightweight strength.

Build envelope : 30 x 20 x 20 cm (12 x 8 x 8 in)
Max build rate : 16 cm³/hr (1 in³/hr)

Min layer height : 50 µm

02 Debinder

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

Fluid vol : 17.4 L (4.6 gal) max
Vapor mgmt : No external ventilation required

03 Furnace

Fully-automated and sized to fit through an office door, the
furnace delivers industrial-strength sintering in an office
friendly package. Built-in temperature profiles tuned to every
build and material ensure uniform heating and cooling without
the residual stresses introduced in laser-based systems.

  [BMD] [MIM]
01 Specially formulated feedstock
vs. mixed metal powder

The BMD process starts with specially formulated bound metal rods—metal powder held together by wax and polymer binders—a formulation similar to the binder and metal powder mixture used in
Metal Injection Molding (MIM).
02 Printing (no tooling required)
vs. injection molding

The first step in each process is forming a “green” part. In MIM, this is done by injecting a metal powder-binder mixture into a mold. With BMD,the part’s form is created by extruding bound metal rods layer by layer in a carefully controlled process.
03 Debind
When a green part is shaped, the system is modular by design and built for batch processing—allowing users to scale for unique production requirements. In both processes, this part is immersed into a debind solution to remove primary wax binder—creating a porous structure throughout the part in preparation for sintering.
04 Sinter
As the part is heated to temperatures near melting, remaining polymer binder is removed and metal particles fuse together,causing the part to densify to a solid metal part. During this process,the part’s form shrinks roughly 15% as the binder is removed and only metal particles remain.


A software-controlled workflow
Fabricate? software automates even the most challenging
aspects of the fabrication process. It auto-generates supports
for easy removal and creates custom build plans that are
tuned to the geometry and material for every part in the
job—making it easy to produce high-quality metal parts
without custom tooling or a dedicated operator.

Remove supports by hand
Introducing Separable Supports?. Designed to simplify post
processing, the Studio System prints supports with a patented
Ceramic Release Layer? that does not bond to the metal part. This
makes it possible to separate supports by hand.

Print at higher resolution.
A new swappable 250μm printhead with supporting software
profiles enables new geometries and applications—achieving
smaller parts and fine features with an improved surface finish.

Watch a live stream of the build.
An in-chamber build plate camera captures video of the part as it
prints — viewable in a web browser. This gives the user greater
insight into their print and the ability to monitor print success.

Debind and sinter in bulk.
New stackable shelving increases part capacity of the debinder and
furnace for greater throughput. Increased workload volume
addresses bottlenecks typical at the debind and sinter stages.

Produce even better parts.
A new retort box design supports thermal uniformity—resulting in
higher-quality parts.

Reduce operational costs.
External gas connections give the option to reduce the cost of

consumables and achieve a lower cost-per-part.

Configure a Studio Fleet.
New custom-configurable hardware solutions increase efficiency for
low volume production of high-quality metal parts.


Expert metallurgy built-in

Bound Metal Deposition and the high-quality materials were developed by leading experts in their respective fields. This includes Animesh Bose, aka ‘The Father of MIM,’ Professor Ely Sachs who coined the term ‘3D printing,’ and Professor Chris Schuh, Head of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT.

Low volume production with Studio Fleet?

For the first time, on-demand metal 3D printing will deliver accessible and scalable manufacturing that
adapts to diverse business needs, part requirements, production volumes, and cost constraints.

Scale throughput

Studio Fleet makes it easy for manufacturers to scale production for low to mid-volume runs—without
the prohibitive costs associated with custom tooling or dedicated production facilities.
Common Scenarios:
01. Low volume production of custom parts
02. Aftermarket or replacement parts

03. Pilot runs prior to mass production


Functional prototyping

Jigs & fixtures
Functional prototypes have specific requirements—includin high stiffness, high strength, and heat resistance demanding metal as opposed to plastic parts. The Studio System enables rapid designiteration without the need for a dedicated operator or third-party equipment, and the complexity of the design has no impact on production cost or time.

Jigs and fixtures are essential to lean manufacturing,but they’re usually de-prioritized when compared to other production needs. In-house metal 3D printing allows engineers to produce jigs and fixtures quickly using a design optimized for the specific need. And the ability to produce replacement parts on-demand is critical to operational efficiency.


Low volume production
Tool-making can be tedious due to complex geometries and part requirements, resulting in processes that are expens ive and time consuming. The Studio System can print in materials that are difficult to machine and allows manufacturers to produce parts for tooling faster, cheaper, and on demand.

Traditional manufactu ring methods—such as casting—are prohibitive to low volume production due to high costs of initial tooling. Studio Fleet? leverages the latest Studio System features, including batch processing. It delivers a custom configurable solution that adapts to business needs to bring low volume production to the shop floor.
