3D Systems Gets On-Board The Millennial Trains Project With Its New CubePro And EKOCYCLE 3D Printers

-Encouraging the development of 21 st century digital craftsmanship -Promoting sustainable solutions to civic, entrepreneurial initiatives

ROCK HILL, S.C., Aug. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today it is hopping on-board the 2014 Millennial Trains Project, a ten-day transcontinental journey with 25 pioneering Millennials who gathered to solve civic grand challenges using disruptive technologies and implement their solutions and programs in the local communities of each stop of the trip. Through this sponsorship, 3DS is democratizing access to localized manufacturing capabilities by delivering a railway-ready hacker-space equipped with the latest 3D printers and digital craftsmanship tools.

3DS plans to deliver a complete onboard hacker-space experience powered by its new CubePro and EKOCYCLE 3D printers and its latest Sense and iSense 3D scanners. Both CubePro and iSense are shipping with immediate availability. The CubePro features the largest-in-class print platform; the only controlled print chamber and ultra high-resolution settings of 70-micron thin print layers. The EKOCYCLE Cube 3D printer lets you stylize your digital world and make it real, printing in high resolution, fast speeds and with beautiful complexity only matched by nature. Each EKOCYCLE cartridge turns the equivalent of 3 plastic bottles into your next wearable fashion, music accessory or desktop décor. It is the only 3D printer that exclusively prints in recycled materials with an integrated platform emphasizing the use of post-consumer waste for remaking of new, functional items.

3DS's on-board hacker-space is an interactive environment designed for Millennials to discover how 3D printing can create new businesses, transform entire industries and push the frontiers of American manufacturing, as well as the possible applications of the technology to their own projects. In its second annual cross-country trip, the Millennial Trains Projects include initiatives to enable and empower small businesses from artisanal start ups to established entrepreneurs, create 21 st century skills training and knowledge shares, a variety of sustainability-focused programs for students and larger urban communities and reimagine the way Americans approach innovation and our future.

"Computing power and advanced technologies are integral to my music in the studio and on stage," said will.i.am, Chief Creative Officer, 3DS. "Harnessing 3DS's latest 3D printing tools, today's Millennials are equipped today with the digital literacy skills that will drive the future and transform how they design, what they create and where they manufacture it."
