Unlike other systems that require 3rd party equipment, the Studio system was designed as a complete workflow. Every stage of the process is fully automated and managed by sophisticated software, making it simple to go from CAD to part.
Change materials in under a minute
Changing materials in laser-based systems poses safety risks and can take a week or more. The Studio printer was designed with safe-to-handle, swappable media cartridges and quick release print heads for seamless material changes.
Easily swappable aluminum gas canisters and optional hook-ups for house gas make it simple to manage gas. The system automatically detects levels and gas type, dispatching notifications if there is an issue. Built-in effluent filters, binder cold traps, and safety fail safes keep the system safe to use on the shop floor.
Expert metallurgy built-in
Designed with the world’s foremost metallurgists, the Studio System combines unique materials profiles with part data to construct sintering plans for every part. Closed loop thermal control enables real-time
heating regulation throughout the sintering cycle, ensuring every part is uniformly heated and cooled.
