L1 3D Printer

Revolutionary large format 3D printing with industry-leading materials

The L1 Printer

Consistent high-volume production and larger parts

The L1 printer is a proven tool for product designers, engineers, and manufacturers who need to consistently produce large parts or many smaller parts. Offering over 1,000 cm² of build area, the L1 printer produces large parts in single prints, or many small parts for high-throughput production.


Accelerate time-to-market

Produce functional prototypes quickly, then move to high-volume production on the same system.

Proven with millions of parts

The L1 is making history in additive manufacturing, scaling production to the millions of parts for companies like adidas, Specialized, and Riddell. Additionally, dental labs are utilizing the L1 printer to quickly ramp up clear-aligner model production. Learn more about what customers have to say here.

Cutting-Edge Design Powered by Advanced Software

Use Familiar Tools

Carbon 3D printers support STL files. Use standard CAD tools to generate your design, then upload your STL into Carbon’s print planning tool.

Lattice Design

Carbon’s Design Engine software helps customers generate the perfect lattice to fit desired form, mechanical response, and durability requirements.

Surface Textures

There’s no need for a complicated pipeline of third-party tools. Add branded, aesthetic, or functional textures to your parts, all from within Carbon software.

Save Time and Improve Quality with Automated Print Preparation

Auto Layout

Save time when preparing builds with multiple parts by using Carbon’s auto layout feature.

Advanced Auto Supports

Advanced auto supports save time and ensure high-quality results by offering a reliable, FEA-backed strategy for supporting parts during printing.

Boost Efficiency with Print Analytics

Manufacture at Scale

Because every machine is connected, Carbon’s entire workflow can be logged, monitored, and reviewed through tools and dashboards that to offer deep insights into fleet performance and utilization.

Fleet Management Dashboard

Review production data and manage a fleet of devices in real-time from one dashboard. Queue new projects seamlessly.

Part Traceability

Preserve a part’s entire history—from CAD file, to design, to print—in one digital record. Streamline quality assurance with embedded unique part identifiers to quickly review a part’s history.

Better Operations with Connected Hardware

Over-the-Air Software Updates

Carbon’s 3D printers constantly get better, even after they’re installed. Regular software updates improve every aspect of the Carbon DLS™ process, offering improved user experience, faster and more accurate prints, and more sophisticated process management.

Real-time Status and Control

Monitor and manage printer and parts at every stage of the printing process wherever you are, regardless of whether you have one or hundreds of Carbon 3D printers.

Accelerated Customer Support

Carbon’s customer support team can identify and troubleshoot printer issues remotely without interrupting business operations. Data-backed predictive maintenance through real-time alerts inform customers about issues that might impact production.
