ROCK HILL, S.C., Nov. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) announced today the immediate availability of its new VisiJet® X Plastic Material, the first jetted plastic available with the look, feel and performance of injection molded ABS plastic ideal for prototyping, product mockups and end-use applications requiring extreme toughness and high temperature resistance.
New VisiJet X plastic works in 3D Systems' ProJet® 3500 3D Printers including the SD, HD, HDPlus and new HDMax models, and provides new levels of durability and functionality previously unattainable with a jetted plastic.
"Our new VisiJet X material is a revolutionary breakthrough in jetted plastics," said Buddy Byrum, Vice President of Product & Channel Management for 3D Systems. "VisiJet X parts have the toughness and durability of ABS for both prototyping and end use applications, and a heat deflection temperature of 88oC right out of the printer with no additional tempering needed. Best of all, VisiJet X parts look great with a stunning white finish that really looks like it came from an injection mold."
