Develop and Produce Better Parts on the Same Platform

Carbon’s platform combines the best hardware, software, and service in additive manufacturing to provide a reliable 3D printing process you can depend on.

A Carbon 3D Printer for Every Budget

All Carbon 3D printers utilize the groundbreaking Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ (Carbon DLS™) 3D printing process. Additionally, Carbon printers come in a variety of models with build volumes and price points to suit your needs.

M1

The printer that pioneered the Carbon DLS process. Ideal for companies starting to explore 3D printing for prototyping and low volume production. Great for small batch sizes and fast cycle times.

M2

Workhorse 3D printer that scales a wide range of applications from prototyping to mass production. Offering the same high resolution as the M1, the M2 is ideal for smaller parts with intricate features such as threading or internal channels.

M3

The M3 printer is the cutting edge of DLS printing, ideal for customers looking for faster printing, a simpler print experience, an expanded design space, and a more consistent surface finish.

M3 Max

The M3 Max printer offers the benefits of next-gen DLS printing with a true 4K light engine, enabling double the build area with the same pixel size and density.

L1

Revolutionary large-format 3D printer leveraged by leading brands for the serial production of next-generation end-use products. Great for consistent, high-volume production of large parts or many small parts.
