ROCK HILL, S.C., June 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today that it will feature its versatile personal and professional 3D printers as well as its extensive digital design tools at the Design Engineering & Manufacturing Expo (DMS) in Tokyo, Japan, June 24 – 26, 2015. Located in the Tokyo Big Site Convention Center, booth E 2-36, 3DS will showcase its workflow-enhancing 3D digital thread, which allows clients in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare and architecture to move seamlessly between scanning, designing and 3D printing to compress design windows and shorten supply chains.

Together with its partners and resellers, 3D Systems will display the ProX 200 Direct Metal Printer (DMP), which creates fully functional, end-use metal parts. In addition, visitors to the booth can see vibrant full-color printing on the ProJet® x60 series and ProJet® 4500 as well as multi-material composite printing on the ProJet® 5500X. Desktop printing and prototyping will also be on exhibit with the ProJet® 1200 micro-SLA 3D printer and the user-friendly Cube® and CubePro®.

For the design and scanning component of the digital thread, attendees can get a first-hand look at reverse-engineering software Geomagic Design X, digital sculpting platforms Geomagic® Sculpt and Geomagic® Freeform®, and CAD/CAM solutions from CimatronE® and GibbsCAM®. Integrated Geomagic Capture® scanning and software systems will also be on display for demonstrations.

"With our ever-growing suite of 3D digital design and fabrication tools, 3D Systems gives customers the power to fluidly design from physical objects, 3D print prototypes, perform automated quality inspections and manufacture functional parts all in one ecosystem," said Cathy Lewis, Chief Marketing Officer, 3DS. "DMS is a perfect forum for emphasizing the power, customization, versatility, and time and cost benefits of our digital thread."

During the Expo, experts from the company will showcase success stories made possible by 3DS products, including a real-life user case study on how to utilize 3D printing for injection molding as well as the latest applications in Direct Metal Printing.
