3D Systems (NYSE: DDD) has launched an e-commerce site for its new FabPro™ 1000 entry-level industrial 3D printer which combines smooth surface quality, accelerated throughput and a straightforward user interface.
This powerful, compact additive manufacturing system is optimized for producing high quality plastic part prototypes as well as casting patterns for jewelry at print speeds up to three times faster than competitively priced systems. It’s powered by 3D Sprint™ best-in-class software to simplify part preparation and print monitoring and is offered with three different materials: FabPro Tough BLK for functional prototyping and production parts, FabPro Proto GRY for fine featured prototypes and models, and FabPro JewelCast GRN for jewelry master patterns used for gypsum investment casting applications.
Customer feedback on the FabPro 1000 confirms the system’s superior price/performance ratio. One example is Simon Walker, the owner of Artforge which designs and manufactures highly accurate collectible miniatures and unique jewelry.
Simon has been using the FabPro 1000 for precision investment casting.
