3D Systems Unveils Americana, 3D Printed Electric Guitar By Olaf Diegel On Cubify

Stocks in this article: DDD

ROCK HILL, S.C., Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today the introduction of a new, one-of-a-kind 3D printed guitar, the Americana, embedding the rich details of New York City's most memorable landmarks in the body of a Les Paul inspired, electric guitar, clad by the stars and stripes. Designed by renowned Cubify® artist Olaf Diegel, the Americana masterpiece guitar will be on display to the public for the first time along with 3D Systems' award winning Cube® 3D printer and Cubify apps at the National Association of Music Merchants Show, NAMM, in Anaheim, CA, January 24-27, 2013, at the Anaheim Convention Center, in Hall E, booth 1537.

Straying from his signature biomimicry-styled 3D printed guitars, Olaf Diegel was inspired by his love for New York City and all that it represents when creating the Americana. It patriotically demonstrates the complexity and sophistication that is possible with 3D printing, a technology born in America by 3D Systems. A full interview with Olaf Diegel on his inspiration, process and passion for 3D printed instruments is available here.

The Americana joins the rest of Olaf Diegel's guitar collection on Cubify.com and is available for purchase today. Interested musicians and enthusiasts are invited to work directly with Olaf to customize their preferences including a range of pick-ups and necks to choose from.

"We are thrilled to unveil the Americana guitar, a real American masterpiece celebrating our passion for music, country and 3D printing at the NAMM Show along with our entire consumer 3D experience," said Cathy Lewis, CMO of 3D Systems. "We invite attendees, music brands and developers to experience Cubify, a secure hosting, publishing and production platform, and introduce the 3D lifestyle to their audiences."

At NAMM, 3D Systems invites music brands, retailers and artists to learn how to monetize their intellectual property and creativity on Cubify.com. The company plans to demonstrate its consumer 3D lifestyle experience including at-home 3D printers, electronic and fashion accessories and customization apps.
