Concept to design to product: 3D printers let you create working prototypes and finished products quickly and cost-effectively. Modifications are made simply and products remade without the costs and time of traditional manufacturing. A full range of technology and material options ensures there is an ideal printer to meet the most demanding needs.
Over 30 years ago, Chuck Hull invented 3D printing with a technology known as SLA and thus created the company 3D Systems. Today the company has wide-ranging core technologies and continues to lead the industry, making 3D printing widely available through reducing the cost and usability barriers that have traditionally restricted access.
