3D Systems to Launch Dental Lab System

ROCK HILL, S.C.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—January 21, 2008— 3D Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: TDSC), a leading provider of 3-D Modeling, Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing solutions, announced today it plans to unveil its ProJet(TM) DP 3000 3-D Production System, a 3-D Printer that accurately, consistently and economically manufactures precision wax-ups for dental professionals, at LMT's Lab Day Chicago exhibition at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers on Saturday, February 23, 2008.

The user of the ProJet(TM) DP Production System scans a model, designs a virtual wax-up using 3-D software, then sends the data to the ProJet(TM) Production System to "print" wax-ups in layers; the system can generate hundreds of units each cycle. Built in VisiJet(TM) DP 200 Material, the wax-ups have a smooth surface finish and can be cast or pressed with conventional techniques. The specially formulated material for dental applications is virtually ash-free and can be used with traditional laboratory waxes. The printer's large build volume and optional part stacking and nesting capabilities enable unattended operation ideal for high-volume production. The open architecture allows file transfer from any open scanner on or off site. Current material applications include full cast crowns, bridges, partial frameworks and full contour units to be pressed over metal and zirconia copings. This allows small, medium and large sized labs to stay competitive in today's ever-changing market environment. Other potential applications include the rapid production of surgical guides and models.

"We are delivering to dental labs a solution that gives them the ability to increase their productivity and improve the quality, consistency and delivery of their product," said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems' president and chief executive officer. "3D Systems is continuing to improve 3-D Modeling technology, responding to the growing demand for rapid and affordable dental services."

The ProJet(TM) DP Production System will be available to customers in the U.S. beginning in March 2008.
