3D Systems to Unveil Breakthrough Polypropylene Sintering Material at DMS Expo

ROCK HILL, S.C.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 19, 2008— 3D Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: TDSC), a leading provider of 3-D Printing, Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing solutions, has announced that it will run a newly developed polypropylene-based material on its Sinterstation® Pro SLS® System at the Design Engineering & Manufacturing Solutions Expo (DMS) from June 25-27, 2008, in Tokyo, Japan.

3D Systems is developing this new Selective Laser Sintering (SLS®) Plastic, DuraForm® XR300, jointly with TRIAL Corporation of Kanagawa, Japan. This revolutionary material is translucent, white in color, flexible, and has good chemical resistance and elevated impact strength. It is designed for a wide-range of applications, such as automotive interiors, requiring parts that are soft and flexible, yet durable. While not yet commercially available, DMS attendees will have the first opportunity to preview DuraForm® XR300 Material.

3D Systems is pleased to unveil to the Japanese marketplace a newly developed polypropylene-based material designed exclusively for our advanced selective laser sintering rapid manufacturing systems, said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems president and chief executive officer. After more than a decade of laser sintering technology dominated by polyamide based materials, we are very pleased to be the ones making a significant technology announcement regarding a truly breakthrough material for rapid manufacturing applications. Japan continues to be an important leading-edge marketplace for 3D Systems, and it is appropriate that this advancement was made possible through collaboration with a Japanese research company. We are pleased therefore to have the opportunity to share our next generation systems and materials with our Japanese customers and advanced users at the DMS Expo.

3D Systems will exhibit its new, high-definition ProJet HD 3000 3-D Production System using Multi-Jet Modeling (MJM) technology and its direct-metal producing Sinterstation® Pro DM250 SLM System. It will also exhibit its large-frame Pro systems, the Viper Pro SLA® and Sinterstation® Pro SLS® Systems. All of these systems use CAD data to build three-dimensional parts in hours using advanced Additive Manufacturing technology.
