3D Systems to Highlight Desktop Engineering Advantages of CubePro 3D Printer with Webinar Series

ROCK HILL, South Carolina, July 13, 2015 – 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today a new webinar series for Desktop Engineering focused on the performance advantages of 3D digital design and fabrication tools on the desktop, including powerful, compact 3D printers, 3D scanners for capture and reverse engineering, and 3D printing-optimized design software. Through a series of featured power-users from companies large and small, attendees will see first-hand how the combination of desktop products, led by the CubePro® 3D printer, is allowing engineering and design groups to iterate, test and become manufacturing-ready faster with professional-grade reliability, quality and performance.

The first webinar on Thursday, July 23, 2015, at 11 am EDT (5 pm CET) will feature Medtronic, PLC (NYSE:MDT), a global leader in medical technology, with guest speaker William Harding, Medtronic Distinguished Technical Fellow. After using 3DS’ professional and production printers for many years, Harding began exploring desktop solutions to add additional 3D printing capability and increase his team’s ability to ideate, iterate, and test with flexibility and speed. Harding will share how he was able to utilize CubePro desktop 3D printers to rapidly prototype systems and technology that Medtronic will use in the development of end-use products for both internal and external purposes. 3DS’ Principal Engineer for Plastic Jet Printing, Marty Johnson, will also be on hand to share how the CubePro’s climate-controlled chamber enables quality and reliability across a variety of materials and environments.

“As the quality, speed and reliability of desktop 3D printers increases, we’re seeing widespread transformations in the design-to-manufacturing process,” said Jeff Blank, Vice President, Global Engineering and Chief Development Officer, 3DS. “More and more companies are putting affordable 3D digital design and fabrication tools on the desktop, providing their engineers and industrial designers with the freedom to design and create without the limits of traditional manufacturing processes.”
