3D Systems Exhibits Fully Functional 3D Printed Metal Parts and Advanced Aerospace Solutions at 2015 International Paris Air Show

ROCK HILL, South Carolina, June 15, 2015 – 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today that it will demonstrate its advanced aerospace solutions, including Direct Metal Printing (DMP), at the 2015 Paris Air Show. At the 3DS booth (Hall 2B, G52), attendees can see firsthand how 3DS’ advanced manufacturing technology helps aerospace manufacturers produce complex end-use parts and assemblies faster, reduce the weight of flight components and dramatically shorten costly, lengthy supply chains.

In addition to the 3DS booth, attendees can visit 3DS reseller Creatix3D’s booth (Hall 4, C3) to see the high-precision ProJet® 3500 MultiJet plastic printer and the fab-grade ProXTM 300 direct metal 3D printer.

3DS’ wide range of print engine technologies and materials enables aerospace clients to reach design goals faster, save money on end-use and prototype parts, and reduce part count in complex assemblies. Through its cloud-based Quickparts manufacturing services, 3DS can provide fab-grade series metal production, and can tap the latest material technologies and know-how like its patent-pending Conformal Lattice Structures and high-temperature, lightweight carbon-filled materials.

“Aerospace companies have long been using our 3D printers to optimize part design and create components of unlimited complexity, thereby improving their buy-to-fly ratios,” said Neal Orringer, Vice President of Alliances & Partnerships, 3DS. “Our direct metal printing technology now gives them the ability to create precise, flight-ready parts and assemblies that require the mechanical properties of metal, all without lengthy lead times and tooling costs. We invite everyone at this year’s Paris Air Show to come by our booth to see the difference 3D Systems makes in the air.”

The International Paris Air Show, one of the preeminent aerospace shows in the world, takes place from June 15 – 21, 2015, at Le Bourget Parc des Expositions in Paris, France.
