"I am both excited and awed by the exponential performance gains that our new Pro X 950 delivers," says Hull. He points out that ProX 950 is flexible and versatile, and can produce precision parts with accuracy that rivals CNC machining, ranging in sizes smaller than the eye of a needle all the way to parts larger than a life-size tiger without compromising feature details or true-to-CAD accuracy. In addition to the SLA and SLS print- ers, the company features units that offer MultiJet Printing (MJP) technology. This is an inkjet printing process that uses piezo printhead technology to deposit either photo-curable plastic resin or cast- ing wax materials layer by layer. MJP is used to build parts, patterns and molds with fine feature detail to address a wide range of applications. Software Solutions from Autodesk Martinez explains that Autodesk develops design software—from free tools such as the 123D family all the way through to Product Design Suites—that enable 3D printing for industries such as The MDX-540 printer from Roland is a Subtractive Rapid Prototyping (SRP) sys- tem offering CAM soft- ware that quickly pro- duces everything from functional and snap-fit parts and prototypes to custom jewelry.
