3D Systems' V-Flash Desktop Modeler

V-FlashA(R) Desktop Modelers from 3D Systems are themost affordable, most versatile, and easiest to use in-office desktop 3-DPrinters available. Its compact designallows for use in workspaces of virtually any size, and its large build volumeof 9 x 6.75 x 8 inch provides for a broad range of part sizes. Itsinstantaneous build speed is 4 times greater than other available 3-D printerscosting more. V-FlashA(R) uses 3D Systems' patented Film TransferImaging (FTI) technology incorporating wear components into single-use,easy-load cartridges. Empty cartridgesmay be returned to 3D System's V-Flash Recycling Centers, the industry's firsteco-friendly cartridge return program. With V-Flash, designers can make modelsstarting with their earliest design ideas and gain the advantages of solidmodel communication throughout the design process. Solid models provide a universal language topresent design concepts and facilitate vital feedback from both engineering andnon-engineering peer groups. Iterativeprototyping accelerates the design process shortening time to market. It leads to improved designs by providingproof of concept assurance throughout the design project and reducesdevelopment costs by reducing or eliminating costly redesigns. Designers can quickly create concept andcommunication models, conduct form/fit testing, and perform functional testswhile maintaining design confidentiality during early design stages.-Flashoffers key differentiated benefits versus other 3-D printers such as lowerprice, superior part quality, higher productivity and lower total cost ofownership. V-Flash is priced 50 percentlower than its closest competitor and has 15-20 percent lower total cost ofownership over time.
