3D Systems Unveils Professional Micro-SLA 3D Printer for $4,900

- High-resolution compact 3D printer for dental labs and jewelers
- Ready-to-use small parts and castables for under one U.S. dollar
- Smaller than most coffee makers and faster than baking a cake
- Integrates all-in-one cartridge of casting-friendly VisiJet(R) FTX

ROCK HILL, S.C. and FRANKFURT, Germany, -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today unveiled its ProJet(R) 1200, a new affordable micro-SLA 3D printer ideal for small, precise, detail-rich parts and casting patterns, such as jewelry, electronic components and dental wax-ups. Smaller than most coffee makers and faster than baking a cake, this new printer is economical to own, safe to operate anywhere and simple to use. It prints accurate ready-to-use parts and castable patterns that cost less than one U.S. dollar. Priced at $4,900, the ProJet 1200 democratizes access to professional-grade 3D printers for independent jewelers, dental labs and product designers.

"For the first time ever, a dental technician, an electronic component designer or a jeweler can afford to have their own professional 3D printer on their workbench," said Michele Marchesan, Chief Opportunity Officer, 3D Systems. "This is a significant step in democratizing access to individualized professional 3D printers for localized, distributed manufacturing."

This revolutionary micro-SLA ProJet 1200 delivers unmatched part accuracy and surface smoothness. With a 43 x 27 x 180mm (1.69 x 1.06 x 7.08 inches) print volume, the ProJet 1200 prints 30 micron layers at a 585 dpi resolution resulting in fine feature-details reflecting true-to-CAD accuracy. This printer uses 3DS' new VisiJet(R) FTX Green material -- a durable and rigid material that is tailored for plastic prototyping and casting patterns, making it ideal for jewelers, dental labs, and designers of very small detail products such as collectibles and electronic component parts. The all-in-one cartridge enables efficient and safe printing while the integrated curing cell allows the ProJet 1200 to deliver ready-to-use parts.

3DS invented SLA printing and was the first to commercialize it in 1989. Today its SLA printers continue to be the industry's gold standard for high precision, large-scale, production-grade manufacturing in aerospace, automotive, patient specific medical device and a variety of industrial grade investment casting use cases.

The company is accepting pre-orders for its new ProJet 1200 micro-SLA 3D printer and plans to begin commercial shipments during the first quarter of 2014.
