3D Systems has today announced a range of new 3D printing materials, software updates and a new full color 3D printer to accelerate additive manufacturing in the growing investment casting, jewelry and dental markets.

Among the announcements is expansion of the company's MultiJet Wax family with the new ProJet® MJP 2500W and VisiJet® M2 CAST RealWax™ material, for applications in jewelry and industrial casting.

New VisiJet 3D printing materials

Beyond wax, the company introduced new VisiJet materials for the MJP 2500 platform with rigid properties for applications such as snap-fit assemblies. According to the company, the advancements include a breakthrough dental model material in rigid tan (VisiJet M2R-TN), the most optimal color for dental models to deliver superior visual contrast and precision. Other new materials include rigid black (VisiJet M2R-BK), rigid white (VisiJet M2R-WT) and rigid clear (VisiJet M2R-CL).

New LaserForm Metal 3D printing materials

3D Systems also introduced four new LaserForm® metal materials for 3D Systems' metal printers for precision metal part production in healthcare, aerospace, dental and other applications.

The new materials include:

  • LaserForm Ni625 (A), a nickel cobalt chrome material ideal for applications requiring high temperature and corrosion resistance as well as high strength. LaserForm Ni625 (A) enables shorter lead times and reduced cost over conventional production methods in most applicable industries.

  • LaserForm CoCrF75 (A), a cobalt chrome material well suited for industrial parts requiring resistance to corrosion, wear and high temperatures. LaserForm CoCrF75 (A) is specifically suited for medical tools and devices; dental implants and prostheses; molds and dies; high wear industrial applications; and parts requiring high strength at elevated temperatures.

  • LaserForm 17-4PH (A), a stainless steel material for parts that require excellent corrosion resistance, high strength and good toughness.

  • LaserForm AlSi10Mg (A), an aluminum material for parts that require lighter weights, good mechanical properties and high thermal conductivity, particularly in industrial, automotive and aerospace applications.

3D printing software updates

3D Systems also introduced DMP Vision™ to enable process monitoring for new and existing ProX® DMP 320 customers. The DMP hardware and software kit enables layer by layer image data collection and analytics to help customers increase precision in their metal printing workflow.

3D Systems will also begin bundling its innovative 3DXpert workflow software with all its direct metal printers next month. 3DXpert reduces design and print time and produces better parts by combining powerful print preparation, shape optimization, printing strategies and slicing capabilities.

The company also extended its 3D Sprint™ software across the MultiJet 3D printer family. The software provides design, preparation and management tools to streamline the 3D printing process, saving users time and money. 3D Sprint software is available for download as a value add for 3D Systems' customers.

"Our most recent developments expand the capabilities and innovation of our customers across key verticals to dramatically improve their digital workflow," said Jim Ruder, Senior Vice President of Plastics, 3D Systems. "We are committed to providing solutions that deliver productivity, repeatability, durability and improved total cost of operations to drive real 3D production for our customers."

New ProJet CJP 260Plus 3D printer

3D Systems also unveiled today the new ProJet CJP 260Plus 3D printer for anatomical modeling in healthcare and concept modeling for accelerated product development.  The ProJet CJP 260Plus is the company's most compact 3D printer for fast and affordable full-color 3D printing, and offers full CMY color in a closed-loop powder loading, removal and recycling system.

In conjunction with the introduction, the company is offering a program for current owners of 3D Systems' ProJet CJP 260C to upgrade to the ProJet CJP 260Plus.
