3D Systems Announces iPro 9000 XL SLA Precision Center ­

Rock Hill, S.C. - 3D Systems Corp., a provider of 3D printing, rapid prototyping, and manufacturing solutions,announced the iPro 9000 XL SLA Center for the production of extra-large, high-definition Pro Parts for prototyping and end-use.
3D Systems plans to present this new system during its World Conference later this month and begin commercial shipments of this system during the fourth quarter of the year.
With the ability to deliver parts up to 60-inches long, the iPro 9000 XL SLA Precision Center is well suited for applications requiring large, single-piece parts. Its extra-large build platform (59 x 30 x 22 in. or 1500 x 750 x 550 mm) is the largest commercially available Stereolithography platform.
The iPro 9000 XL delivers a complete part with no seams for aesthetic superiority, uni-part durability, reduced labor, and decreased cost.    The iPro 9000 XL SLA Center is the third model of the recently introduced modular iPro 9000 SLA Centers, adding a third platform configuration alternative to the current single and dual Resin Delivery Modules (RDM).
The iPro family of Precision Centers produces durable plastic parts from 3D Systems' family of integrated Accura Plastics with surface smoothness, feature resolution, edge definition, and tolerances that rival the accuracy of CNC-machined plastic parts.
Based on decades of 3D Systems' patented SLA technology, these SLA Centers feature 3D Systems' new-generation proprietary ProScan digital scanning system that is equipped with a new state-of-the-art SteadyPower Imager for optimal performance and repeatability.   
The 3D Systems World Conference will be held from October 20-23, 2008, in Charlotte, N.C./Rock Hill, S.C. For more information, visit www.3dworldconference.com.
