ROCK HILL, South Carolina, March 3, 2010 – 3D Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: TDSC), a leading provider of 3-D Printing, Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing parts and system solutions, announced today the immediate availability of its ProJet™ MP 3000, a new 3-D Production System for digital-dental models. The ProJet™ MP 3000 3D Printer was recently displayed at LMT Lab Days in Chicago, Illinois.
The ProJet™ MP 3000 is the first economical 3-D Production System for small- to medium-size dental labs. This new compact production system incorporates the latest generation of 3D Systems' patented and proprietary Multi-Jet Modeling (MJM) technology with benefits that include crisp feature definition at increased build speeds. The ProJet™ MP 3000 prints dental working models from a new durable, high-contrast material designed specifically for this application.
“We are very pleased to offer our dental lab customers a new solution designed to increase their productivity, quality and accuracy at a lower cost,” said Lee Dockstader, vice president of Business Development at 3D Systems. “We expect this advanced system to enhance the overall user experience and deliver significant performance advancements to our dental lab customers.”
The company believes that the continued introduction of a new generation of dental intra-oral and impression scanners by leading dental companies will drive increased demand for digital-dental working models. The company expects that its ProJet™ MP 3000 will become the low cost dental model maker for small-sized and medium-sized labs.
