Desktop Metal, a Burlington-MA based startup, unveiled their Studio product line this past week. The Studio system includes both printer and sintering oven and can be used for directly printing metal parts safely in an office or desktop setting. The Studio relies on extrusion of a metal rod of filamentary material, unlike other powder-based systems for metal parts, to leverage a wider materials suite at a more affordable cost. The Studio system will ship in September of this year. Professor John Hart is a co-founder of Desktop Metal along with several other MIT faculty.
