MIM Materials

Similar to Metal Injection Molding (MIM), the Studio System leverages bulk sintering to achieve parts with high densities and reliable performance. Everything from the particle distribution size within each rod to the design of the cartridges and extruder mechanisms supports a faster, easier, and safer workflow for printing high-quality metal parts.

Safe-to-handle bound metal rods

Leveraging well-studied metal powders from the metal injection molding (MIM) industry, our media is formulated into bound rods—metal powder mixed with wax and polymer binder. Compared to filament media, rods have a higher ratio of metal to binder—resulting in less shrinkage and greater stability during sintering.

Hot-swappable media cartridges

Push-to-release media cartridges can be replaced mid-cycle without disrupting the current print. This allows users to use every gram of material without needing to pause a print to change spools or dispose of partially used material—Ultimately leading to cost savings and a more efficient workflow.

Quick material changes

Designed to support a range of printable materials, the swappable cartridges, quick-release printheads and nozzle brushes eliminate cross-contamination, allowing you to go from one type of material to another in a matter of minutes—instead of hours or even days like with other systems.
