About Carbon

Who We Are

Carbon® enables companies to craft what the world needs by combining innovations in software, hardware, and materials to deliver breakthrough products that improve human well-being, transform industries, and change the world.


The company was founded in 2013 and launched on the TED stage in 2015, where Co-Founder and CEO Dr. Joseph DeSimone unveiled the scientific breakthrough behind Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS™) technology for the first time.

Carbon DLS technology fuses light and oxygen to rapidly produce polymer products from a pool of resin. By overcoming limitations of conventional 3D printing, DLS makes it possible to digitally produce parts with unmatched quality and surface finish, and at volumes and speeds never before possible. DLS also empowers designers and engineers to create parts using complex geometries that are impossible to produce using traditional manufacturing methods, opening up new product possibilities. As the world's leading digital manufacturing company, Carbon enables some of the most well-known global brands such as adidas, Riddell, Ford, and Johnson & Johnson to create innovative products with 3D printing technology.

Carbon has customers in 14 countries and is continuing to expand globally in Europe and Asia. The company has more than 500 employees globally and is growing rapidly.
