Carbon today announced the addition of two 3D printing service bureaus and contract manufacturers to its customer portfolio. Dinsmore Inc. and Midwest Prototyping now offer their customers access to Carbon’s M1 printer and Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) technology.

Carbon, known for its innovative Continuous Liquid Interface Production Technology (CLIP), unveiled its first commercial 3D printer, the M1 back in April. The M1 is a powerful new tool designed to fill a gap in the commercial 3D printer market. The company says its approach is as much as 100 times faster than those used by other 3D printer manufacturers. This means that the M1 3D printer is capable not only of producing quality prototypes, but even production-quality parts, an impressive feature for a commercial 3D printer.

Following the release of their commercial Carbon M1 3D printer, more and more industrial partners are set to benefit from CLIP technology. One of the first to adopt this commercial CLIP M1 3D printing platform is automotive part developers Delphi, who uses the M1 to develop functional prototypes and small end-use batches.

Midwest Prototyping is one of the largest independent service bureaus in US. Founded in 2001, the company is specialized in rapid prototyping and low-volume production. “What excites us the most about our new relationship with Carbon is their dedication to the development of engineering-grade materials – not only in regards to the breadth of available options, but also the quality of those materials ready for everyday, real-world applications,” said Steve Grundahl, President and Founder of Midwest Prototyping.

“The future of additive manufacturing lies in the ability to produce end-use parts,” said Jay Dinsmore, CEO and President of Dinsmore & Associates, Inc. Founded in 2002, Dinsmore & Associates is a single source provider of Design & Engineering, 3D Printing, Additive Manufacturing, CNC Machining, and Injection Molding services. The company says its ultimate goal is to get customers to market fast. “Carbon’s offering is truly innovative because of the range of materials we can print with, the quality of parts that come off the M1 machine, and the speed at which we can achieve the desired end-use results," said Dinsmore.

With CLIP, the two bureaus’ range of customers – from automotive and aerospace, to consumer and medical – are now able to produce polymeric parts that have the resolution, surface finish and mechanical properties required for both functional prototyping and final production.

“With access to the M1, these leading service bureaus can better serve their innovative customers, and make a real impact in a number of industries,” said Joseph DeSimone, CEO and co-Founder of Carbon.

Carbon seems suspect to me at so many levels. Anyone see a review for their M1 system yet? No? How many months has it been out? I swear, the more you look into Carbon3D the more reason you have to run away screaming. I can't wait until their hype bubble explodes.
