Reinventing the way engineering and manufacturing teams produce metal parts - from prototyping to mass production.
Desktop Metal was founded to address a problem—how to make metal 3D printing accessible for engineering teams and to change the way we bring products to market. Current metal 3D printing is too expensive and industrial for prototyping and it's not fast enough or cost-effective enough for mass production. Thus, Desktop Metal takes a fundamentally different approach to metal 3D printing to push the industry beyond its current limits. In 2013, CEO Ric Fulop began collaborating with world-leading experts in materials science, engineering, and 3D printing. Their work together over the course of two years drew multiple independent inventions together to form the basis for Desktop Metal’s technology- a process similar to FDM (fused deposition modeling) in which the printer extrudes bound metal rods and allows for multiple alloys and rapid material changes.
Desktop is taking the metal 3D print industry by a storm with two 3D print systems and 200+ compatible alloys- available for K-12, Vocational, College, University and Career & Technical programs today.
