3D Systems Launches Professional, High-Definition 3D printer

Rock Hill, S.C. - 3D Systems Corp., a provider of 3D modeling, rapid prototyping, and manufacturing solutions, announced its plan to launch the ProJet HD3000 3D Production System, a professional, high-definition 3D Printer, at SolidWorks World 2008 from January 20 to 23, in San Diego, Calif
The 3D Production System is a next-generation 3D printer based on 3D Systems’ patented and proprietary Multi-Jet Modeling (MJM) technology. This high-throughput 3D printer provides the choice of high-definition and ultra-high-definition build modes in a single system.    
The ProJet 3D Production System is ideal for a wide range of uses, including concept development, design validation, form and fit analysis, production of molding and casting patterns, direct investment casting of jewelry, and other fine feature applications. 3D Systems’ extensive VisiJet Materials’ portfolio, including direct-investment castable materials, is designed for use with the new ProJet 3D Production System, opening new frontiers of manufacturing productivity for a variety of producers.    
With its large build volume and unique part stacking and nesting capabilities, this new system enables extended unattended operation that is ideal for overnight and weekend production runs. The performance of the ProJet HD3000 3D Production System is enhanced through the incorporation of 3D Systems’ innovative ProJet Accelerator software that provides extensive build management, part editing and automatic support generating tools.   
The ProJet HD3000 3D Production System combines unique hands-free support removal, and facilitates the production of precision parts and patterns with finer feature detail and superior surface quality.    
The ProJet 3D Production System will be available to customers worldwide beginning in March 2008.
