A Boon for Creativity, Productivity, and Efficiency

The Next Generation

Expanding the space of what’s possible with a simplified print experience, making it easier than ever to get started printing the parts you want to make with the Digital Light Synthesis™ technology process. The evolution of DLS represents a new baseline for innovation and part quality.

Simpler: Built with You in Mind

Next-gen oxygen permeable optics, closed loop control of force and temperature, built-in IR-based resin heating means it has never been easier to get started printing the parts you want to make with DLS technology. The next generation of DLS creates substantially lower forces on the part and introduces closed loop control of force and temperature, opening more possible part orientations and reducing print failures.

Smarter: A Broader Design Space

Lower forces during printing and closed loop control of force and temperature unlock more geometries, especially for elastomeric parts, or parts with features most sensitive to high forces. Plus infrared resin heating is now a core part of the printing platform, allowing you to print with all Carbon’s engineering grade resins by default.

Faster: Up to 2.5x Higher Throughput

Thanks to better heat management, the next generation of DLS printers delivers more throughput per square foot in thermally limited scenarios with throughput improvements for dental models up to 2.5x faster than the M2 printer.

Smoother: Consistency with a Fine Finish

The next-gen of DLS printing improves print consistency across the build platform, reducing the variation in parts across a single-build (cross-build variation) by 30% and producing a premium surface finish you can see and feel.

Redesigned with You in Mind

Carbon M3 Printer

Easy Installation and Maintenance

The M3 is designed to be installed in hours, with the ability to relocate the printer as you see fit.

Enhanced User Interaction

The on-printer UI has been totally redesigned with status-lighting and sounds, a new touch input screen, and new functionality at the printer.

Print Bigger or More Parts with the M3 Max

The new M3 Max features double the build volume of the M3 with the same pixel size thanks to an all new true 4K light engine.
