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
“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.
|Size||35 in. x 24 in. x 49 in|
|Washer Volume||1x build platform|
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.
Carbon’s Design Engine software helps customers generate the perfect lattice to fit desired form, mechanical response, and durability requirements.
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
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.
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.
