3D Systems, Rock Hill, SC, announced that it is expanding its ProJet® 1200 Suite with five new materials engineered specifically for the desktop printing capabilities of its micro-SLA 3D printer. These new materials join the previously introduced VisiJet® FTX Green material, expanding the capabilities of those creating patterns, small end-use parts, and presentation models.

Dental labs use the ProJet 1200 with FTX Green for the production of a range of small dental prosthetics. It prints in 30-micron layers at 585-dpi resolution for the production of up to 12 wax-ups in an hour on the desktop.

The expanded VisiJet FTX material range will be available in December 2014.
