Based on its revolutionary Figure 4 technology, 3D Systems’ new platform allows customers to tailor configurations and select materials to address specific applications. Configurations range from single-print engine machines to fully automated, high-volume production systems with 16 or more print engines, automated material delivery and integrated post-processing.
The company recently shipped the first system to a Fortune 50 industrial customer, and plans to ramp customer-specific shipments throughout the second half of 2017.
“We believe our breakthrough Figure 4 platform will revolutionize manufacturing by transforming production of both mass customized and complex end use parts with a compelling total cost of operations versus conventional methods,” said Vyomesh Joshi (VJ), President and CEO, 3D Systems. “While others are realizing the need to transition from prototyping to production, we are delivering real solutions across all key vertical markets and applications that are helping customers solve problems today.”
|Illustrative Example – Figure 4 vs. Traditional SLA*|
|Figure 4 Production Configuration with 16 Print Engines||Improvement|
|Printers Required||225 x||Fewer|
|Annual Throughput Per Printer (prints)||225 x||Higher|
|Facility Floor Space (sq ft)||26 x||Lower|
|Printer Upkeep Labor||45 x||Lower|
|Labor Cost||4 x||Lower|
|Initial Investment||23 x||Lower|
|TCO - 5 Years, Full Fleet||3.5 x||Lower|
|Part (1 million units per year)||Improvement|
|Cost Per Part (in dollars)||71||%||Lower|
|Average Print Time Per Part (in hours)||14.1 x||Faster|
|Material Waste (in grams)||1.5 x||Lower|
- Fewer printers with better throughput result in lower investment and higher material utilization.
- Cost per Figure 4 produced parts approximately 30% of traditional SLA.
As part of its vertical strategy, 3D Systems will unveil one of its initial solutions for the multibillion-dollar dental industry based on the Figure 4 platform and its NextDent materials. Customers will be able to see the solution at the International Dental Show (IDS) 2017, in Cologne, Germany, March 21-25.
Over time, the company intends to extend the Figure 4 platform application by application to meet specific customer needs across healthcare, aerospace, automotive and durable goods industries.

Squirrels Research Labs Announces Acorn Cryptocurrency Acceleration Hardware12.7.2018 21:04 | Pressemelding
NORTH CANTON, Ohio, July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Squirrels Research Labs today announced Acorn, a new hardware component that improves efficiency and effectiveness of cryptocurrency mining. "We developed a piece of hardware called Acorn that increases the effectiveness of existing GPU mining operations without adding a significant cost," Squirrels president David Stanfill said. "This is a brand new concept that's never been done before." Acorn works in sync with GPUs to offload work that typically creates bottlenecks in mining. It performs the work much faster, resulting in an increase in overall mining efficiency. Initially three models will be available: CLE-101, CLE-215 and CLE-215+. Each model uses high-performance FPGA chips from Xilinx Inc. (NASDAQ:XLNX) in an M.2 slot to perform the least GPU-efficient parts of cryptocurrency mining. All Acorn models work with memory-intensive algorithms like Ethash and CryptoNight V1. The 215 and 215+ models work with both memory-intensive
