3D Systems Announces Latest Webinar on Direct Metal Printing

ROCK HILL, South Carolina, July 17, 2014 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today a new webinar titled:

After spending a record 31 days living 63 feet below the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, Fabien Cousteau finally surfaced on July 2, 2014. During the aptly named “Mission 31,” Fabien Cousteau, grandson of renowned ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, led a rotating team of scientists, documentarians, and activists to their temporary home, Aquarius, in a joint effort to deepen our understanding of marine life and the effects of pollution and climate change. (Image left courtesy of 360 Heros.)

Among the filming expedition was Jonathan Woods from TIME Magazine, who spent a day diving with researchers. To document every angle and facet of Aquarius and Cousteau’s research, Woods used 360 Heros scuba gear, a specially designed and 3D printed camera mount for 6 GoPro cameras. The rig generates fully spherical HD video, allowing Woods to create an interactive 360˚ tour of the aquatic research facility.

Mission 31 was a success in part due to its astounding duration, but more importantly because of the vast quantity of data that was collected during the expedition. The time saved from avoiding back and forth trips to the surface and having a continuous supply of oxygen allowed researchers to collect the equivalent of approximately two years’ worth of information in one month underwater.

The Future of Customized Fab-Grade 3D Printing

It’s the kind of thing you might need to see to believe, but 3DS is proud to share that our fab-grade 3D printers now match and exceed the speed and productivity of traditional injection molding for the direct manufacture of functional parts. This is big news for manufacturers who want to quickly produce working, precision parts without tooling or a stretched supply chain. Using our SLA and SLS advanced printers, record-setting print speeds can now be achieved, without sacrificing quality and while gaining complexity. This enhancement indicates a shift from low volume production to high volume direct manufacturing of complex parts, across use cases and industries.

Read more about this exciting development here, and to see for yourself, check out the video below.

It all goes to show that we need to expect the unexpected with 3D printing.

What could full-color 3D printing do for you? How could they liven up your concept models, convey your ideas more truly than ever, and add life to your designs?

You have questions; we have answers.

Today we announced a new webinar on our ColorJet Printing (CJP) line: “3D Printing Your Designs in Full Color,” which will stream live on April 24, 2014, at 11 a.m. EDT. If you have questions about color 3D printing or just want to see what it can do, this is a can’t-miss event.

Color helps us understand and identify the world around us. It separates our ideas from the rest. It makes things unique. With this in mind, color 3D prints can make a huge difference in things like architectural models, movie animation pieces, medical models, product concept models and more. Better yet, color 3D printing from 3D Systems can speed up product development cycles and bring you to a new level of productivity.

3D Systems representatives, and guests from CJP expert users Objex Unlimited, will present the incredible capabilities of our ProJet® x60 line and our ProJet 4500, the only full-color plastic 3D printer.

So we invite all designers, architects, manufacturers, engineers, medical modelers and digital artists to see what the CJP’s high resolution, fast build speeds and over 6 million colors can do for you.
