SensAble Chooses 3D Systems' ProJet 3-D Printer to Complement its Dental Lab Production Solution

ROCK HILL, S.C.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 21, 2008— 3D Systems Corporation (NASDAQ: TDSC), a leading provider of 3-D Modeling, Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing solutions, has announced that SensAble Technologies has chosen its ProJet DP (Dental Professional) 3000 Production System to be a part of its integrated SensAble Dental Lab System, which scans, designs and fabricates frameworks and substructures for dental restorations.

The SensAble Dental Lab System is the first integrated digital solution to support the production process for partial frameworks as well as crown and bridge substructures. This solution uniquely incorporates 3D virtual touch technology so that lab technicians can feel the on-screen image and work as naturally and directly with a computer-based system as they do when using traditional hand-waxing techniques.

Once the digital wax-up is complete, the SensAble Dental Lab System automatically sends the digital data to the 3D Systems ProJet DP Production System. The ProJet printer uses an additive process to build up thin layers, creating an accurate resin pattern. The same 3-D printer creates the resin patterns for both partials and crown and bridge. The easy-to-use system can manufacture more than 100 units per build cycle, depending upon restoration type. The patterns have a smooth surface finish and can be cast in metal using traditional methods and materials.

We are excited to team up with 3D Systems and integrate the ProJet DP 3000 into our digital dental solution, said Bob Steingart, SensAbles president and general manager of the companys dental division. The ProJet DP 3000 System consistently produces accurate patterns that our customers can feel confident in casting, knowing that their dentists will get dental restorations with a great fit.

We are pleased that our ProJet DP System has been chosen to play a significant part in this comprehensive, integrated dental solution from SensAble Technologies, said Abe Reichental, 3D Systems president and chief executive officer. With the combination of our and SensAbles technologies, we are delivering a valuable digital solution to dental labs looking for a competitive advantage.
