Desktop Metal Forust
Rematerializing wood waste to produce beautiful end-use products.
Forust is building a greener future through 3D printed wood.
The Forust process combines two wood industry byproducts - sawdust and lignin - to produce isotropic, high-strength, sustainable wood parts.
High-quality materials and finishes Unlike particle board or laminate, Forust produces 3D printed, digitally rematerialized wood, with grain that flows across the entire part and can be sanded and refinished. The Forust process has the ability to mimic almost any wood grain, from Ash to Zebrano, Ebony to Mahogany.
Streamlined production of complex wood designs 3D printing opens a new design space for wood-based products. Because parts are formed layer by layer without the need for supports, designers can optimize parts and create complex features which would be difficult – if not impossible – to achieve with traditional woodworking methods.
Cost-effective carbon footprint reduction Forust processes and materials are designed to make it easy and cost-effective for manufacturers to produce sustainable wood parts. The Forust process gives manufacturers a fully sustainable solution at costs competitive with traditional wood manufacturing.
