Carbon DLS Advantage

Ready to bring your designs to the next level? The Carbon Digital Light Synthesis (Carbon DLS) process lets you speed up the product development process, reduce risk, improve the design of existing products, and bring radically new ones to market. And it’s all covered by Carbon’s industry-leading application development, service, and training support.

Rapid Product Development

Carbon’s unparalleled materials and production-ready platform let you prototype and produce on the same platform, speeding the product development process and reducing risk.

Functional Prototypes

Don’t settle for fragile prototypes; bring your designs to life in the industry’s best materials, then start testing and iterating immediately.

Iterate Quickly

Test dozens of designs in the time it used to take to try one.

Produce with Confidence

The Carbon DLS™ process is proven for high-volume production in industries ranging from automotive to consumer products. When you’re ready to bring your product to market, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with the ability to revise your designs immediately, without retooling.

Impossible Geometries

Find the perfect form for your application, not the one that fits the mold.

Undercuts and Undrafted Walls

Moldability constraints don’t apply here. Enjoy the freedom of designing with undercuts and perfectly straight walls without sacrificing manufacturability.


Break free of conventional manufacturing and introduce new geometries like lattices, which allow you to specify the characteristics you require at every millimeter. Determine your product’s ideal mechanical response and work with Carbon’s Design Engine software to build the right lattice for it.

Fully Dense for End-Use Quality

Unlike powder-bed fusion 3D printing technologies, Carbon technology produces fully dense parts.



Part Consolidation

Review existing designs and determine what assemblies benefit from being made as one part.

Better Performing Parts

A single printed part frequently offers better overall mechanical performance than an assembled part.

Streamlined Production

Streamline production with reduced SKUs and less labor by consolidating assemblies.

A New Aesthetic

Deliver designs that break new ground and delight your customers.


With no tooling costs, you’re free to make every unit unique. Offer personalized designs, or build entire products around individuals. Carbon’s factory management software lets you track parts from design to delivery.

Surface Design

Carbon DLS™ offers excellent surface finish and high detail. Enhance your parts by applying textures to complex curved surfaces like grips and enclosures with Carbon’s software.

Industry-leading Service and Support

Spend your time creating great products, not troubleshooting your machines. Carbon subscriptions include both comprehensive customer support and advanced application development.

Application Development

Additive manufacturing is a new tool in many industries; our team of experienced, creative applications engineers will work with you to deliver groundbreaking products that take full advantage of the Carbon DLS™ process.


Carbon’s Internet-connected 3D printers find issues before they become problems, and our support team can keep your operation running remotely and with in-person service visits.


Give your entire team access to the creative power of Carbon DLS™. Carbon offers in-person and online training that goes beyond machine operation to cover application development and design for additive manufacturing.
