Major Japanese Automaker Purchases 3D Systems SinterstationPro 230 SLS System

VALENCIA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Aug. 23, 2005— 3D Systems Corporation (Nasdaq: TDSC), a leading provider of rapid 3-D printing, prototyping and manufacturing solutions, announced today that a major Japanese automaker has purchased a Sinterstation(R) Pro 230 SLS(R) system.

"We believe that this automaker's decision to purchase and install a Sinterstation Pro 230 system on site validates one of the major business opportunities for this product," said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems' president and chief executive officer. "In a fiercely competitive environment like the automotive industry, design is a key differentiator for leading players, and the Sinterstation Pro system enables them to deliver superior products with reduced development cycle times.

"Because it enables customers to reliably manufacture large, highly durable parts directly from digital data, the Sinterstation Pro 230 system is an ideal choice for automotive manufacturers. With these systems, they can create fully functional parts and assemblies that they can test or incorporate into concept vehicles. By creating the parts directly without the need for machining, silicon rubber tooling and other traditional manufacturing processes, automotive customers can save weeks or even months of valuable time."

3D Systems' new Sinterstation Pro SLS systems, Models 140 and 230, feature intelligent process controls, modular design, automated powder handling and the largest available laser sintering build volume. Designed to meet the demands of end-use parts manufacturing, these new systems offer excellent and repeatable part quality, significantly reduced labor intensity, clean and environmentally friendly processing and accelerated throughput. Equipped with 3D Systems' new Sinterstation Pro system, customers can cost-effectively manufacture plastic parts for a variety of applications, particularly in the aerospace, electronics and medical industries, and build large, functional prototypes, molds and patterns for automotive and consumer product applications.

"We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work very closely with industry leaders who are committed to driving the state-of-the-art in alternative manufacturing solutions for applications in the automotive, aerospace, medical instruments and consumer electronics industries," concluded Reichental.
