3D Systems to Showcase Advanced 3D Technology as Platinum Sponsor at SOLIDWORKS World 2016

  • Demonstrations of end-to-end solutions, from software and 3D printers to on-demand part manufacturing services
  • Presentation of the software in small groups to discuss “Designing additive manufacturing for production”

ROCK HILL, South Carolina, Jan. 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) today announced that it will offer its latest 3D printers, materials and software solutions, as well as manufacturing services for on-demand parts as well as a platinum sponsor at SOLIDWORKS World 2016 in Dallas, TX, January 31-February 3. Show visitors are invited to learn how 3D Systems’ offerings complement and enhance SOLIDWORKS® software to transform the way people work and make. 3D Systems is present at stand 707 of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.

Products and services on display at booth 707 will include:

  • Direct integration of scan-to-CAD workflow with industry-leading, SOLIDWORKS-certified Geomagic Capture® for SOLIDWORKS® and Geomagic® DesignMT X. Using the integrated Systems Capture 3D scanner and Geomagic software, SOLIDWORKS users can quickly and accurately import accurate feature-based 3D scan data directly into their CAD software to reconstruct CAD data that is lost or create new CAD data for existing products.
  • GibbsCAM® production machining software, a SOLIDWORKS certified CAM solution. The combination of GibbsCAM and SOLIDWORKS provides a complete CAD/CAM solution that meets the needs of almost any manufacturing environment, from simple 2.5-axis milling or 2-axis turning to complex 5-axis machining or machining centers. Swiss style. This combination helps users eliminate scrap and reduce cycle times while optimizing the machining process for maximum efficiency, safety and profitability.
  • An overview of the Project® MJP 2500 Series, the latest professional 3D printing technology with an affordable, desktop-friendly footprint and easy part processing. The ProJet MJP 2500 Series is designed to enable a wider range of professionals to create precision parts without leaving their workplace. The ProJet MJP 2500 is currently in beta testing and commercial availability will be announced at a later date.
  • The ProJet MJP 3600 series for high-throughput, high-speed 3D printing, designed to bring increased productivity to a wide range of prototyping, molding and end-use part production needs. The powerful data processing capabilities of this series enable it to handle files up to 250% larger than the previous generation, at up to twice the speed. The ProJet MJP 3600 series uses VisiJet® M3 plastic materials to provide incredible detail, high temperature resistance, and sealed surfaces, and also includes templates for printing detailed wax patterns for investment casting applications.
  • Production quality stereolithography (SLA) printing on the ProJet 6000, offering a wide selection of materials that match or exceed the properties of traditional plastics, including high temperature resistance, tensile strength, and impact resistance, as well as USP Class VI compliant materials for biocompatible medical or dental applications . The ProJet 6000 delivers fast, high-quality 3D printing with exceptional ease-of-use throughout setup, build optimization, monitoring, and printing.
  • Manufacture of parts on demand from 3D Systems, Quickparts, providing advanced prototyping and production solutions using traditional and additive technologies, materials and finishing options. With instant online quotes and a global team of quality and customer service-minded 3D printing experts, 3D Systems’ Custom Parts Service connects designers, engineers, and manufacturers with a full range of solutions. from anywhere in the world, at any time.

“Our ecosystem of 3D scanning, printing and manufacturing solutions integrate seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS,” said Cathy Lewis, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, 3D Systems. “It empowers designers, engineers, and innovators to accelerate their designs, improve their products, and transform their workflows.”

3D Systems will also host a breakout session on “Designing Additive Manufacturing for Production” by Chris MacBain, Product Marketing Manager, Software, 3D Systems. An expert in prototyping and mold making, MacBain will explain how additive manufacturing allows designers to circumvent previous design limitations and improve the performance of manufactured parts. MacBain will also offer an overview of the considerations needed when designing parts for production and explain the benefits of integrating GibbsCAM with SOLIDWORKS. See MacBain’s presentation at 1:30 p.m. on Monday, February 1, room D170/172.
