3D Systems to Exhibit Aerospace 3D Content-to-Print Solutions at AUVSI 2013

3D Systems announced today plans to exhibit its aerospace and defense 3D content-to-print solutions at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI 2013) Conference and Exposition.

The company's portfolio of industrial-grade 3D printers, on-demand parts services and 3D design and engineering software, which enable direct-to-manufacture parts production, will be on display August 12-14, 2013 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington D.C., at booth 1828.

3D Systems' on-demand parts service, Quickparts® Solutions revolutionized the way product development and manufacturing professionals outsource custom manufactured parts. The QuickQuote® system delivers instant, custom-generated quotations for production of parts using both 3D printing and traditional manufacturing to meet customer needs. Industrial-grade solutions including the company's best selling ProJet 3510 3D printer will be on display, showing high quality plastic parts and investment casting patterns for functional testing and direct part manufacturing. Users can interact with the company's powerful Geomagic Solutions engineering software, 3D scanning, and inspection tools, and experience the seamless content-to-print workflow 3D Systems provides.

"We are working one-on-one with multiple leading Aerospace and defense manufacturers to transform their workflow and supply chain by creating functional plane, UAV and other end-use parts," said Ziad Abou, Vice President and General Manager, On-Demand Parts for 3D Systems. "Our products and services ensure consistent quality, reduce cost, lower part weight and count, and deliver enhanced overall performance to unmanned vehicle performance."
