M2 3D Printer & Smart Part Washer

Carbon’s workhorse printer that scales from prototyping to mass production

M2 3D printer

The M2 Printer

Accelerate your product development

Go from prototype to production on the same machine. Offering speed, accuracy, and a medium build platform size, the M2 is well suited for a wide range of applications. It is our highest resolution printer and is ideal for smaller parts with intricate features such as threading or internal channels.

Produce at the Right Volumes

The M2 allows for cost-effective production with no minimum volumes.

Speed Up Production

The M2 has a built-in print planner that optimizes every build, assigning variable print speeds to match the part’s needs.

What our customers are saying

Kaila Nakanishi

“We are amazed at the quality, accuracy, and consistency of the parts that our Carbon M series printers provide. They are the true workhorses in our lab.”
Kaila Nakanishi Technical Manager of Digital and All-Ceramics, Nakanishi Dental Lab

“The Carbon DLS™ process allowed us to make significant progress with microfluidic diagnostics very quickly to address the need for POC testing. We designed these devices with 3D geometries that cannot be made with other manufacturing processes, using production-ready materials. Our microfluidic cartridge is ready for production after only five weeks of development.”
Dr. Bill King Chief Scientist, Fast Radius

Smart Part Washer

Reduce labor costs and increase throughput

Simple, Mess-Free Washing

A game-changer in cleaning parts. Simply place the build platform from an M2 printer into the Smart Part Washer and let it run.

Maximize Part Quality

Get a consistent, predictable, and thorough clean of your prints by moving from a manual process to a smart, automated process.

70% Labor Savings Per Wash

With optimized wash protocols, labor time per print is minimal. Spend that time more productively—making new parts.

Cutting-Edge Design Powered by Advanced Software

Laptop with CAD tools interface

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

Lattice Design

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

Surface texture design

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.

Add Auto Supports interface

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.
