Two years after Carbon unveiled its M1 3D printer and continuous liquid interface production (CLIP) technology, the Redwood City, California-based startup has returned with a new 3D printing system.

Carbon's SpeedCell, launched on Thursday, has two new hardware components: The industrial-grade M2 3D printer and the Smart Part Washer, through which parts can be cleaned and finished. The washer is connected to the M2 printer via near-field communication readers so that as parts move through the machine, it captures the data associated with the build and wash cycle.

The M2 build chamber is twice the size of its predecessor, coming in at 190mm x 118mm x 326mm. It also includes features such as locked printing parameters for validation and the option to serialise parts for traceability.
