“The subscription model is beneficial as we are able to make payments over time versus one large capital investment. This enables us to keep costs down and allows for the flexibility to add more printers as the division grows.” Nick Windlow Smile Shapers, Director of Business Development

Why are Carbon 3D printers offered as a subscription?

We focus on helping you succeed in delivering better products in less time–not on selling you equipment. We build an ongoing relationship with you starting the day your printer is installed, and consistently and reliably deliver technology updates, expertise, and support to help you every step of the way. We have proven this approach with a broad range of customers, from major global brands to family-owned businesses, helping them deliver exceptional products efficiently.

Advantages of the Carbon subscription
  • A partner committed to your long-term success instead of a one-time printer sale.

    Paying upfront for a printer puts all the performance risk on you as the customer for your success. We believe in our technology and approach enough to share the risk to ensure you are successful. Instead of paying us upfront for equipment, you pay us as you use it. If we don’t deliver exceptional value, you won’t renew your subscription.

  • Flexibility in your capital equipment investments.

    Carbon subscriptions can vary in length depending on your needs. Shorter subscriptions allow our customers to try out different printers without having to buy them outright. You have the option to renew your subscription, return your 3D printer, or upgrade your 3D printer.

  • Updates, maintenance, and support are included.

    Owning a printer means you own maintenance and upkeep. With Carbon, we handle maintenance and we routinely upgrade printers with new software to improve your printers’ performance. Carbon printers have a track record of consistent, reliable and accurate production over time. We maintain them and ensure excellent uptime so that you can focus on developing and producing great products.
