Dimension 3D Printing Group Introduces The Dimension Elite

New 3D printer delivers stronger models with finer feature detail and improved surface finish at an affordable price

MINNEAPOLIS - Jan. 31, 2007 - The Dimension 3D Printing Group, a business unit of Stratasys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSYS), today launched and announced immediate availability of the Dimension Elite 3D Printer. The Elite joins the group's market leading line of desktop modeling systems - which includes the Dimension 1200 Series (priced from $21,900) and 768 Series (priced from $18,900) — as the fifth 3D printer within the Dimension product family. The Elite was introduced this week at the annual Dimension reseller conference in Las Vegas, Nevada to Dimension's network of more than 200 partners worldwide.

The Dimension Elite 3D Printer provides engineers and designers stronger, functional models with finer feature detail and improved surface finish. Priced at $32,900, the Elite features an 8 x 8 x 12-inch build envelope and uses a new, stronger ABS material, ABSplus. ABSplus is on average 40 percent stronger than standard ABS material, making it ideally suited for testing the form, fit and function of inherently fragile, fine-featured models.

"The Dimension Elite addresses a market need for an affordable, networked, 3D printer capable of building stronger functional models with finer feature detail," said Jon Cobb, vice president and general manager of 3D printing for Stratasys. "Engineers and designers creating models that demand finer detail - such as those designing tomorrow's electronic connectors, medical testers and small instruments - will be thrilled by the performance and affordability of the Dimension Elite. We believe the Elite is an important addition to our successful line of 3D printers, offering designers who put a premium on strength and detail an affordable output option."
