With the open of Euromold 2013 on December 3 in Frankfurt, Germany, we at 3D Systems are excited to usher in the era of 3D printing 2.0. CEO Avi Reichental puts it best when he says “3D printing 2.0 is the migration to the next level in 3D printing.” We’re talking large format, high production systems on the manufacturing floor; more mainstream 3D options for consumers; and reengineering the engineer’s with incredible new software and hardware tools.

Simply put, today was a big day. As part of this new era of 3D printing, we introduced twelve new products on the Euromold floor, including two new production 3D printers: the ProX 500 SLS system for making robust parts and the huge, accurate ProX 950 SLA system. We also revealed the ProJet® 4500—which creates full-color, durable plastic parts—and the ProJet® 5500X, our fast, new multi-material 3D printer. Lastly, we’ve brought precise, Micro-SLA printing to the desktop with the affordable ProJet® 1200.

All of this 3D printer news is in addition to our newly released Geomagic Capture Scan-Based Design and quality inspection system, which includes a scanner and CAD plug-in, and our exciting, consumer-level Sense scanner that allows everyone to digitally capture physical objects faster than ever.

If you’re in Frankfurt for the show, which runs December 3–6, you can find 3D Systems at the Frankfurt Messe, Hall 11, stand E68. We look forward to seeing you and showing you more about 3D printing 2.0. Here are a few pictures from the booth on day one of Euromold 2013.
