Desktop Metal

Desktop Metal is reinventing the way engineering and manufacturing teams produce metal parts—from prototyping through mass production.

In 2019, KDT led a $160 million investment in Desktop Metal, a revolutionary company on the leading edge of making metal 3D printing a reality. The promise of 3D metal printing lies in its potential to disrupt multiple links in the value chain from design and fabrication to shipping and logistics, to the idea of what “inventory on hand” even means. It is more than a replacement for existing metalworking techniques—it’s a step-change in the design of metal parts that will allow us to build things we haven’t yet dreamed or that were previously considered impossible to create.
