The company also announced today that its founder and Chief Technology Officer,
Showcasing key components of 3DPRINTING 2.0, 3DS' RAPID lineup will include demonstrations of its latest 3D printers, 3D engineering and design software, and samples from its diverse materials capabilities including direct metal, full-color plastic, multi-material and production grade Selective Laser Sintering (SLS®) and Stereolithography (SLA®). The following will be on display:
Industrial-grade direct metal printing – 3DS will showcase its advanced industrial-grade metal printing, as the ProX™ 200 Direct Metal Printer (DMP) will be on display. The latest evolution in metal printing, ProX series of direct metal printers is specifically designed for the most demanding manufacturing floor conditions, delivering high-density, precise 3D-printed parts in a wide range of metals including steel, titanium alloys and aluminum. The ProX series of direct metal printers is now shipping.
First and only full-color plastic 3D printer – The ProJet® 4500 3D printer is the first and only continuous tone, full-color plastic 3D printer and delivers ready-to-use vibrant, durable and flexible plastic parts straight out of the printer in high resolution for a wide range of modeling, functional prototyping and real-use products with superior surface finish. The ProJet 4500 builds with a new class of sustainable VisiJet® C4 Spectrum materials. The ProJet 4500 is now shipping.
High performance simultaneous multi-materials composite printing –The ProJet® 5500X simultaneously prints and fuses together flexible and rigid material composites layer by layer at the pixel level in a variety of colors and shades including opaque, clear, black or white and numerous shades of gray. The ProJet 5500X is now shipping.
Integrated scan-to-design and inspection tools and print drivers – The company is demonstrating
Medical Modeling – The company will display a full range of Medical Modeling solutions for personalized surgery, including VSP® (Virtual Surgical Planning) for Orthognathic and Reconstructive surgery, along with ClearView® and ArthroView® anatomical models and guides used for both pre-operative planning and intra-operative surgical guidance
