ROCK HILL, S.C. and FRANKFURT, Germany, -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced the immediate availability of its ProJet(R) 5500X, a ground-breaking engineered composite materials 3D printer that delivers the highest quality, most accurate and toughest multi-material composites based on its latest MultiJet Printing (MJP) technology. 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. 3DS' printed multi-material composites result in stunningly realistic, functional, large and small prototypes and products for a wide range of manufacturers, designers and engineers.

"Having unlimited options of engineered material properties within a single print is every designer's dream that when combined with the largest print volume in its class and true-to-CAD precision and fine detail makes the ProJet 5500X the clear choice," said Buddy Byrum, Vice President of Product and Channel Management, 3D Systems. "Designers and manufacturers alike are sure to discover new degrees of freedom and the reality of quick-turn production of functional multi-material assemblies, overmolded parts, rubber components, long-lasting living hinges and high-temp parts, all in one printer, all in a single print."

With its industrial-grade print head, the ProJet 5500X prints up to two times faster than any other printer in its class, and produces more than 60% larger volume than all other comparable systems, producing larger parts up to half a meter long, or more parts per print job.

The ProJet 5500X delivers fast composite material print speeds using breakthrough materials with properties that can be easily varied within a single part. This new VisiJet(R) composite family of materials is precisely mixed by the ProJet 5500X print head on the fly to achieve superior mechanical properties and custom performance characteristics, and comes with a 5-year print head warranty.

3DS invented MJP printers and was the first to commercialize it in 1996. Today its MJP printers are the company's best-selling category for the most demanding design-to-manufacturing applications for aerospace, automotive, jewelry, patient specific medical device and a variety of mechatronic and investment casting companies worldwide.
