Shop System™

3D printer

The printer first lays and homogenizes the fine metal powder before precisely spraying on the binder, thus firmly defining the part geometry. The printer reliably processes the stored data layer by layer until the predefined installation space is completely filled.

Powder Station

When printing is finished, the kit is removed and placed in the powder station. Here, the loose powder is removed and recovered via a built-in powder recycling system with powder sieving.

Sintering furnace

The "green compacts" are then positioned in the tray of the furnace and sintered according to predefined / stored temperature curves. This allows a fine microstructure with high mechanical properties to be achieved. The furnace reaches a temperature of up to u 1400 ºC.

Drying Oven

Drying Oven

After completion of the green body, the entire kit is removed from the printer and placed in the drying oven. During this process, the remaining moisture in the binder escapes and the binder hardens. The solid component can now be cleaned of the remaining powder with ease.

Powder Blender

Desktop Metal® Powder Blender

When preparing the powder, a small amount of fresh powder is added to the residual powder. In the Powder Blender of the Shop System™, rotating paddles then mix the powder mixture, breaking up any agglomerates and ensuring homogeneity.

Desktop Metal Software


Desktop Metal® Fabricate MFG

Fabricate MFG, now also known as Live Build MFG, is a total solution to efficiently prepare 3D printed models for any desktop metal powder 3D printer. The software is designed to give users the ability to print parts easily, efficiently and quickly - even for users with little previous experience with Metal Binder Jetting (MBJ).

Desktop Metal® Live Sinter

Live Sinter software harnesses nature and offers state-of-the-art simulation functions to predict and compensate for errors in the sintering of 3D printed parts. Internal stresses, shrinkage, friction and gravity are simulated / calculated via algorithmic functions and the off-set model is created accordingly.
