ROCK HILL, S.C. – 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced that it will showcase a full suite of advanced 3D printing and design-to-manufacturing solutions at this year's TCT Show + Personalize in Birmingham, UK, September 30 - October 2, 2014. 3D Systems (Booth D32) will feature a host of professional and consumer 3D printers along with its reimagined engineer's desktop for scanning, designing and prototyping.
On display at the 3D Systems booth will be one of the industry's premiere metal 3D printers, the ProX™ 200, along with the new full-color ProJet® 4500 and the multi-material ProJet 5500X. In Booth H22, visitors can see a wide range of 3D metal printing applications from LayerWise, a leading provider of advanced direct metal 3D printing and manufacturing services recently acquired by 3D Systems.
Attendees are also invited to peruse 3DS' new lineup of consumer 3D printers, including Cube® and the prosumer 3D printer, CubePro™, which bring high-resolution, plug-and-play print capabilities to hobbyists, makers, professionals and students. In addition, visitors can experience 3DS' reimagined engineer's desktop featuring desktop scanning, CAD, digital sculpting, prototyping, printing and inspection, all from one location.
As part of its presence at TCT, 3D Systems is partnering with Black County Atelier (BCA) and TCT Magazine for a second consecutive year to bring the TCT Bright Minds UK to the show. TCT Bright Minds UK gives hundreds of schoolchildren hands-on experience with 3D printing and design in an effort to spark innovation and creativity in the next generation of technology leaders. Inside a large classroom at the exhibition hall, BCA will lead educational workshops using 3DS' Sense™scanners and Cube 3D printers.
"We consider it our responsibility to help tomorrow's engineers, designers, manufacturers and innovators to start learning this exponential technology today," said Cathy Lewis, CMO for 3DS. "For that reason, we're proud to once again sponsor TCT Bright Minds UK and to provide this valuable workshop experience."
In addition to 3D Systems' exhibition and education spaces, the company's Vice President of Personalized Surgery and Medical Devices, Andy Christensen, will give a keynote address on the power of 3D printing in the healthcare sector. One of the pioneers in this sector, Christensen will discuss how additive manufacturing is enabling surgeons and healthcare practitioners to achieve new heights in personalized medicine. See Christensen's keynote talk at 10:10 a.m. on October 2 in the main arena.
Attendees can also see a complete scan-design-print-inspect workflow using 3DS' products and Geomagic® software solutions led by 3DS' Gareth Glezzard in the seminar zone on October 1 at 1:55 p.m.
