Desktop Metal Is Set to Change How Metal Is Manufactured
with the Fastest Metal 3D Printing System in the World

For the First Time, Affordable, Safe and Precise Metal 3D Printing for Both
Prototyping and Mass Production Will Be a Reality Across Industries - at Speeds 100x Faster

Desktop Metal, the company committed to making metal 3D printing accessible to global manufacturers and engineers, launched two systems covering the full product lifecycle -- from prototyping to mass production -- which mark a fundamental shift in how products will be developed and brought to market. The DM Studio and DM Production systems change the rules of traditional metal manufacturing solutions with the advent of first-of-its-kind innovative approaches that reduce costs and significantly increase speed, safety, and print quality.
The first office-friendly metal 3D printing system for rapid prototyping, the Desktop Metal Studio System is 10 times less expensive than existing technology today. The system is a complete platform, including both a printer, starting at $49,900, and microwave-enhanced sintering furnace that, together, deliver complex and even impossible geometries of metal 3D printed parts right in an engineer’s office or on the shop floor.

100 Ideas Pop-Up Pitch Event Come make a 100 second pitch for your idea.


Start Garden created 100 Ideas with a consortium of banks as a no-strings-attached way to fund people to take a shot at new endeavors each year. It's a community-wide investment in the businesses and organizations of tomorrow. It’s only 100 seconds. Don't hold back. Take a chance on yourself.

On April 24, we announced 100 Ideas that each receive $1,000 to help further their idea. And there’s more. $20,000 more. The same 100 Ideas then present to a group of judges at Demo Day on July 10. A minimum of ten ideas are selected for another $20,000 to continue incubating their projects. Have questions? Visit
