By Emmy Wolfe on October 2, 2018

The 3D printing world is constantly changing. One of the aspects we are enthralled with is the different types of material becoming available. However, different material requires different technology. Keep reading to find out more about printing metal parts with the Desktop Metal Studio System.

Printing on the Studio System 

In this first video, a Desktop Metal Application Engineer takes you through a high-level look at the printing process on the Studio System. It starts with the first moment your print comes out with the density of a crayon, to what it can withstand after it goes through the debinding process.

Debinding Your Metal 3D Printed Parts

Debinding is a crucial step in ensuring the success of your metal part. This is the process of removing the wax binder to prevent melting in the furnace. In the example below, a Desktop Metal Materials Engineer shows what your part can turn into if you don’t debind correctly.

To prevent our parts looking like flat cookies, we need to know the best way to debind our prints from the Studio System. Watch the video below to learn how to use the fabricate dashboard and the debinder machine to get the perfect debound part.
