3D Systems will introduce the new Bluestone SL product for its stereolithography (SLA) systems in 2004, the first in a class of engineered composite products that provide exceptional stiffness and strength.
This will render parts suitable for a range of high-performance applications, including wind tunnel models, such as those used routinely in F1 Race Car development, electronic enclosures, and stiff assemblies for aerospace components.
The Bluestone product is engineered to maximize performance with 3D Systems’ SLA systems. The formulation is claimed to have virtually eliminated settling and separation issues, which allows it to be processed much like existing 3D Systems’ products. The Bluestone product also provides good thermal resistance allowing for higher temperature use compared to conventional materials available today.
The Bluestone product will be made available initially on the SLA 7000 system in early 2004, followed by availability on other solid state systems.
