3D Systems' Latest Production Printers Are Game-Changer For Cideas

- Established Midwest Service Provider Adopts SLS & SLA

- Next Gen Functional Materials Drive Manufacturing Adoption

ROCK HILL, S.C., April 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today that Cideas, a leading Illinois service provider, expanded its advanced manufacturing offering with the installation of the company's latest SLA ® and SLS ® production printers in response to their growing customers' demand for higher quality, functional parts with finer feature detail and surface finish.

Mike Littrell, President and owner of Cideas was impressed with the versatility and productivity of his new sPro ® 60 SLS production printer and the exceptional quality of the parts surpassed his expectations. Responding to greater demand for high definition performance plastic parts, Cideas decided to increase its capacity further with 3D Systems' new ProJet ® 7000 SLA production printer. "I am blown away by the superior quality of Accura ® Xtreme 200 White, 3D Systems' new, ultra durable material. Now we can deliver precision plastic parts with the mechanical properties of thermoplastics to our customers with reduced lead-time and that's a real competitive advantage for us," said Littrell.  

"Cideas offers their customers the best performance and quality available today using our production printers and materials," said Kevin McAlea, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Advanced Manufacturing Solutions, 3D Systems. "This partnership leverages our combined expertise to position Cideas as a leader in the rapidly growing additive manufacturing revolution."
