3D Systems Unveiled V-Flash(TM) HA Production System

Rock Hill, South Carolina, Oct. 22, 2007 - 3D Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: TDSC), a leading provider of 3-D Modeling, Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing solutions, announced today that it unveiled its V-Flash(TM) HA 230 Production System for the Rapid Manufacturing of custom hearing aid shells and molds at the 2007 International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians in Nuremberg, Germany, from October 17-19, 2007.

Dreve Otoplastik, a leading earmold and materials manufacturer, has developed biocompatible materials specifically for the V-Flash(TM) HA 230 Production System to enhance and provide outstanding, high-quality hearing aid shell production capabilities to customers. Dreve Otoplastik is the world-wide distributor for these systems.

During the Nuremberg exhibition, 3D Systems held multiple demonstrations for the benefit of all major hearing aid manufacturers, showcasing its expertly integrated Dreve materials on the V-Flash(TM) HA 230 System. This system uses the same proprietary Film Transfer Imaging (FTI) technology that 3D Systems developed for its V-Flash(TM) Desktop 3-D Modelers.

"We are proud and honored to present the brand new V-Flash(TM) System at our booth at the EUHA 2007," said Dr. Volker Dreve, president of Dreve. "The availability of the V-Flash(TM) unit, together with our FotoFlash® material, will make Rapid Manufacturing a reality in the growing hearing aid market. Having witnessed the performance of the V-Flash(TM) at the exhibition, I believe this system will set the state-of-the-art standard regarding quality, speed and affordability."

"We are pleased with the enthusiastic response that we received during this event from major players within the hearing aid industry on our new desktop manufacturing system, and grateful for the outstanding partnership we have with Dreve," said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems' president and chief executive officer.
