Desktop Metal Studio System 2
Office-friendly metal 3D printing in just 2 steps — Print. Sinter.
Easy, two-step processing
Making complex, high-performance metal parts has never been easier. Featuring a breakthrough two-step process, next-generation Separable Supports, and a software-controlled workflow, the Studio System 2 makes it simpler than ever to produce custom metal parts.
Print to Sinter
The Studio System 2 unlocks two-step processing with a fully re-engineered materials library. New material formulations allow printed parts to be placed directly into the furnace, without the need for the typical solvent debind phase. The result is an easy-to-manage two-step process with a nearly hands-free experience.
Software controlled workflow
You don’t need to be an expert metallurgist or machinist to create complex metal parts. With our Fabricate software, native to Studio System 2, all aspects of part creation – from printing through sintering – are automated. The software automatically scales your part, orients it for print and sintering success, generates separable supports, and applies expert metallurgy to optimize fabrication. Simply upload your design and follow the onboard UI for step-by-step guidance.
Smart Separable Supports
The Studio System 2 features Desktop Metal’s second-generation Separable Supports technology, which automatically generates seams throughout support structures, and prints a reformulated ceramic interface material between the support structure and the part, allowing parts to easily be removed by hand.
With easy-to-use hardware, the Studio System 2 allows you to spend less time managing equipment and more time designing and fabricating parts. Change printheads with the press of a button, and change materials quickly with a refillable cartridge system that allows users to easily load material during print jobs and store excess material safely. A fully-accessible printer and sintering volume and a configurable furnace retort allow for maximum flexibility.
Easily produce difficult-to-machine parts featuring complex geometry like undercuts and internal channels. Fabricate, the software at the heart of the Studio System, automates complicated metallurgical processes to produce high-quality parts with densities and feature accuracy similar to casting.
Designed for the office
The Studio System 2 was designed from the ground-up to fit into your team’s workflow. With no solvents, no loose metal powders or lasers and very little operator intervention required, the system makes it easy to start printing metal parts – no third party equipment or special facilities required.
Unlike laser-based systems that selectively melt metal powder, the Studio System extrudes bound metal rods—similar to how an FDM printer works. This eliminates many of the safety requirements often associated with metal 3D printing while enabling new features like the use of fully closed-cell infill for lightweight strength.

Designed to be the easiest to use sintering furnace made, the Studio System 2 furnace first heats parts to remove all binders from parts, then ramps up the temperature to near-melting to deliver 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.
