Our mission is to advance product innovation with metal 3D printing. Current metal 3D printers are out of reach for most engineers and designers. They are industrial, cost-prohibitive, and can be dangerous. We are making an affordable, office-friendly system so that every design and engineering team has the ability to 3D print with metal.

Desktop Metal is located 30min outside of Boston. We've raised over $420 million from investors that include Google, BMW, NEA, KPCB and GE, and have put together a talented team of engineers, materials scientists, and startup veterans. Join us as we change the way products are designed and produced with metal
