3D Systems' Large-Format ProJet® 5000 3D Printers Get New Engineered Materials


- Larger parts can be printed from flexible or hard plastics
- Choice of performance in midnight black and bright white colors
- Deliver mainstream functionality and engineered properties

ROCK HILL, S.C. and FRANKFURT, Germany -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced the immediate availability of two new VisiJet(R) class performance plastics for its ProJet(R) 5000 large-format 3D printer. The new VisiJet M5 Black is a strong, flexible polypropylene-like material that prints high definition parts with intricate feature details that are accented by its midnight black color. VisiJet M5-X is a strong, rigid material with hybrid ABS/polypropylene-like properties that comes in a bright white color and high definition.

These two new materials deliver mainstream functionality and engineered properties that are highly desired by professionals that specify 3DS MultiJet Printing (MJP) class-leading accuracy, surface finish and edge definition.

VisiJet M5 Black can be used to make functional parts for rigorous functional testing, high definition tooling and extended everyday use. With the ProJet 5000's production-grade performance and large-format print envelope, large panels and housings can be printed with ease. The material's flexibility allows for easy snap-fit assemblies while the midnight black color makes it ideal for electronics, plastic automotive components and chic black appliances.

VisiJet M5-X delivers bright white durable parts with resolution comparable to injection molding. Parts made from this material are rigid, making it an excellent fit for packaging products including bottles, household plastics, piping, valves and other parts that call for stiffness.

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.

3DS is showcasing these new VisiJet plastics and revealing a dozen new products that catapult its entire portfolio of design-to-manufacturing solutions forward at EuroMold 2013 in Frankfurt, Germany, December 3 - 6, 2013 at the Frankfurt Messe, hall 11, stand E68. The exponential speed, size and capacity gains delivered by these groundbreaking printers, advanced material options, and new scan-to-design and inspection tools defines the very essence of 3DPRINTING 2.0.
