3DS plans to demonstrate its powerful 3D design-to-manufacturing products that are specifically designed for the production floor and the engineer's desktop. The company invites attendees to experience the first and only professional full-color plastic 3D printer, try its fab-grade multi-materials 3D printer, and see the output of its latest direct metal 3D printers, all capable of printing fully functional parts and assemblies and available for immediate purchase.
Showcasing key components of 3DPRINTING 2.0, 3DS' AD&M lineup will include demonstrations of its latest 3D printers, 3D engineering and design software, and samples from its diverse materials capabilities including direct metal, full-color plastic, multi-material and production grade Selective Laser Sintering (SLS®) and Stereolithography (SLA®). The following will be on display:
First and only full-color plastic 3D printer – The ProJet® 4500 3D printer is the first and only continuous tone, full-color plastic 3D printer and delivers ready-to-use vibrant, durable and flexible plastic parts straight out of the printer in high resolution for a wide range of modeling, functional prototyping and real-use products with superior surface finish. The ProJet 4500 builds with a new class of sustainable VisiJet® C4 Spectrum materials. The ProJet 4500 is now shipping.
High performance simultaneous multi-materials composite printing –The ProJet® 5500X simultaneously prints and fuses together flexible and rigid material composites layer by layer at the pixel level in a variety of colors and shades including opaque, clear, black or white and numerous shades of gray. The ProJet 5500X is now shipping.
Integrated scan-to-design and inspection tools and print drivers – The company is demonstrating Geomagic® Capture®, the industry's first integrated scan-based design and inspection solution, along with its suite of Geomagic software solutions.
Professional-quality consumer 3D printing – The CubePro™ series of 3D printers, with the largest print volume in its class and multi-material capability. With three models for single, double or triple print heads for up to three colors, this sub-$5,000, professional-quality, consumer 3D printer series offers a controlled environment print chamber to ensure hi-fidelity, true-to-CAD, quality results. The CubePro is available now for pre-order on Cubify.com and through affiliated retailers, resellers and distributors and will commence commercial shipments in the second half of June 2014.
First sub-$1,000 consumer, plug & play 3D printer for everyday use – The third generation Cube® 3D printer has faster print speeds, higher 75-micron resolution and a multi-material, dual-color cartridge system that is easier to load than a 2D printer cartridge with higher speed WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, a permanently levelled print pad and seamless integration with the new Cubify® mobile app to make 3D printing easier than ever before. The Cube is available now for pre-order on Cubify.com and through affiliated retailers, resellers and distributors and will commence commercial shipments in the second half of June 2014.
