Lowering Cost and Reducing Production Time, ProJet 3D Printing Lets Turbine Technologies Soar

Making test parts using traditional mold manufacturing techniques is risky business. Take turbine engine components, which traditionally require weeks and tens of thousands of dollars to finish. The designs upon which these parts are based go through extensive cycle analysis, computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis and solid modeling, but there’s always the chance that alterations may be required due to a mistake or change in specifications. In any case, if a design change is suddenly required, your shiny new test part is now an expensive, time-eating piece of scrap.


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.

As reported by The Telegraph and ITV News, landscape architects are realizing the benefits of 3D printing by using 3D Systems’ printer technology to build miniatures of their designs. These models, whose elements were all created in Color Jet Printing (CJP) for full-color models, and SLA for robust, detailed models, have been on display at the Strand Gallery in London.

Hobs Studio, part of the Hobs Group of Companies, offers 3D printing and laser scanning services and is a 3D Systems reseller. The company printed the designs of ten leading designers for the exhibit, some of whom are Best In Show winners at the Chelsea Flower Show.

3D printing is quickly becoming a game-changer for jewelry designers large and small around the globe, as it allows them to make casting patterns faster and more efficiently. To keep this trend going, SIU System, 3D Systems’ official reseller in Russia (www.siusystem.ru), was a key participant of the annual JUNWEX Jewellery Fair, which took place 5-9 February 2014 in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Visitors were hugely impressed with the high-performance ProJet® 3500 CPX printers, which make precise wax casting patterns, as well as the ProJet® 1200, the newly announced micro-SLA professional 3D printer.

3D Printing All-New Ford Mustang in Chocolate

The enormous impact of Chuck Hull’s invention of 3D printing 30 years ago becomes even more evident as you see him walking around Euromold 2013 alongside the widespread array of 3D printing displays, ideas and technologies that his original idea has spawned.

In this piece, CNN’s Nick Glass interviewed Chuck for a “Make. Create. Innovate.” segment that was part of CNN International’s Quest Means Business show aired on February 13, 2014. Chuck recalls the emotion he felt when he created the first 3D printed part late one night in his lab, and also his pride at where his invention has taken the industry today and what it means for the future.

Recently, our own VP Buddy Byrum sat down with the folks from Realize Inc., a fantastic service provider and user of 3D Systems SLA machines out of Noblesville, IN. They wanted to get his insights about the present and future of 3D printing as well as his experience in the industry.

"If 3D printing is in the public consciousness," Buddy says in the interview, "that's a win for everyone: for 3D printer manufacturers, professional users, consumers, makers, manufacturers, artists, museums ... everyone."
