M1 3D Printer

The Carbon DLS™ process at an entry-level price

The M1 Printer

Prototyping and production at small volumes

Offering the same speed, accuracy, and reliability as the larger M2 printer, the M1 enables any company to unlock the benefits of producing parts using the groundbreaking Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ (Carbon DLS™) process at an affordable price. The M1 printer is compatible with all one-part resins, third-party resins, and dual-cure resins that do not require heating during the print.


Get Started with the DLS Process

Get the great accuracy, consistency, reliability, and material performance of Carbon DLS technology at a low price point.

Accelerate Prototyping and Production

Small batch sizes and fast print times are perfect for printing a high mix of low-volume applications throughout the day, such as functional prototypes in multiple dual-cure resins, or multiple dental applications.

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 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.
