Carbon is a 3D printing company that works at the intersection of hardware, software, and molecular science. Carbon's SpeedCell is a system of connected manufacturing unit operations that enables repeatable production of end-use parts with industrial grade materials.
Carbon brings together innovations in software, hardware, and molecular science to deliver industry-leading digital manufacturing solutions.
Carbon is reinventing how polymer products are designed, engineered, manufactured, and delivered, towards a digital and sustainable future.
The Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ process enables the development of functional prototypes and end-use parts on a single machine.
Rather than sell its machines, Carbon leases them to customers for fees that, for the L1, run about $250,000 per year, allowing for over-the-air software updates and mitigating technology risk.
Carbon is democratizing design software to accelerate product development lifecycles by giving all of its subscribers access to its Carbon Design Engine™ software to automate the process of creating performance-oriented lattices, saving design engineers significant time and effort.
Latest funding capital will be used to expand R&D efforts, establish its first Advanced Development Facility, fuel international growth in Europe and Asia, and invest in its ongoing developments of recyclable and biocompatible materials.
Carbon recently signed sales partnerships with Selltek in Italy and Solid Print3D in the United Kingdom to accelerate its European expansion.
Carbon was named 2021 supplier member of the year by the national association of dental labs.
Carbon was named to Fast Company’s 2021 World’s Most Innovative Companies List.
In August 2022, Carbon announced the acquisition of ParaMatters, a software provider for additive manufacturing. This acquisition expands Carbon’s current software capabilities to include topology optimization. Carbon’s technology platform now broadens to enable product design and development teams to create better products in less time using a wide variety of materials and production systems.
