Given 3D Systems’ most recent financial results, some serious thought must be put into their strategies.
3D Systems announced their quarterly results and they were not as expected.
MORE ABOUT 3D SYSTEMS
3D Systems commercialized the first 3D printer, the SLA-1 Stereolithography (SLA) printer and 2 years later, 3D Systems issued a patent for Selective Laser Sintering (SLS).
3D Systems has scalable metal additive manufacturing for seamless large prints. Their other metal additive manufacturing systems are for production and for fine detail and best surfaces. 3D Systems also has a dental metal additive manufacturing solution used for small, dense, complex dental prostheses. To streamline workflow, the Dental printer includes a high-performance software solution for managing the manufacture of fixed and removable dental prostheses.
3D Systems has industrial level entry level 3D printers for plastic with the FabPro. Print prototypes, functional assemblies and production parts with tough engineering plastics and elastomeric materials. The larger systems for production for the Figure 4 Factory Solutions from the Standalone, Modular or Production.
The standalone Figure 4 is an industrial 3D Printer used for rapid, same day prototyping and low-volume production. The modular Figure 4 is scalable and semi-automated 3D manufacturing solution designed to grow with your prototyping and production needs. The production Figure 4 is customizable for direct 3D production. It has an end-to-end digital workflow supported by 3D Systems software. It has automated material handling, integrated post-processing (washing, drying, curing) to reduce manual processes.
The range of materials available to use on the Figure 4 Factory Solutions includes over 30 materials. The array of materials is important to address a wide range of applications needs, including for functional prototyping, direct production of end-use parts, molding and casting, with ABS-like, polypropylene-like, rubber-like, castable, heat resistant and biocompatible capable materials.
3D Systems also has the ProJet Series which are part of 3D Systems’ MultiJet Printing (MJP) line of 3D printers, engineered to combine professional grade 3D printing capabilities with an affordable price, compact footprint and easy part processing. Materials available are VisiJet materials in rigid white, rigid black and new ProFlex engineering clear. The ProJet MJP 2500 Plus offers additional material capability with rigid clear, rigid gray, rigid tan, VisiJet Armor M2G-CL engineering clear and flexible elastomeric black and elastomeric natural.
3D Systems also offers 3D print services with engineering services. They publish an online 3D printing portal designed by engineers for engineers. Their goal is to make the process of ordering 3D printed parts and prototypes the easiest in the industry. 3D Systems On Demand manages a network of advanced manufacturing facilities around the world. Their team of application engineers provide expertise and localized support.
3D System’s Scanning Software delivers precise digital 3D models and CAD assemblies of physical objects for use in design, engineering and manufacturing with Geomagic reverse engineering software. 3D System’s reverse engineering software make the process of digitally representing and engineering from the physical world fast, easy and accurate.
