3D Systems has announced the availability of its previously announced ProJet 1200 micro-SLA printer and commencement of customer shipments.

This micro-SLA 3D printer is reportedly capable of producing small, precise, detail-rich parts and casting patterns and ideal for fine jewelry, electronic components and dental wax-ups. Smaller than most coffee makers and faster than baking a cake, this new printer is designed to be economical to own, safe to operate anywhere and simple to use. It prints accurate ready-to-use parts and castable patterns that cost less than one U.S. dollar. Priced at $4,900, the ProJet 1200 provides access to professional-grade 3D printers for jewelers, dental labs, product designers and garage entrepreneurs.

Dental labs can print up to 12 precise dental wax ups in under an hour. The Projet 1200 prints at 30-micron layers at effective 585dpi resolution, featuring micro details with the surface smoothness provided by SLA technology.

"Sun Dental Labs is always pursuing the cutting edge in the dental technology field and the ProJet 1200 is a great addition to our portfolio of technologies," said Chuck Stapleton, Vice President of Global Operations, Sun Dental Labs. “The compact size and speed of the ProJet 1200 allows us to further refine our digital manufacturing processes.”

The ProJet 1200 is comparable in size to a coffee maker, with a 8 x 8 base and a height of 13 inches, with both LAN and USB connectivity so everyone in the office can use it. The all-in-one material cartridges are designed to be quick and easy to use. The built-in UV curing station assures safe handling of the parts and locks in their mechanical properties.   

The VisiJet FTX Green material is said to be ideal for casting patterns, with an ash-free burn-out as well as the necessary quality for plastic prototypes and small collectible designs.

“Priced at just $4,900, the ProJet 1200 delivers what professionals and hobbyists alike have been looking for-reliability, productivity, accuracy, operational simplicity and affordability,” said Michele Marchesan, Chief Opportunity Officer, 3DS.
