3DVision Technologies Announces New Fortus 250mc

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - Jul 15, 2011) - 3DVision Technologies Corp., a value-added reseller (VAR) of mainstream CAD, CAE, and PDM software serving Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, is thrilled to announce the addition of the new Fortus 250mc 3D Printer to its 3D Printer product line.

Ideal for budget-minded buyers, the new Fortus 250mc 3D Production System is the most affordable Fortus machine available. This new hybrid machine combines the efficiency of Dimension 3D Printers with the versatility of Fortus 3D Production Systems.

Powered by Insight software, customers can access more file processing options to customize build speed, part accuracy and surface finish. Built on a proven Stratasys platform for reliable operation, the Fortus 250mc allows users to produce parts in a variety of ABSplus colors and easily remove supports with SR-30 support material. The Fortus 250mc also offers a build envelope of 254 x 254 x 305 mm (10 x 10 x 12 in), allowing adequate space to produce most parts.

Like all Fortus 3D Production Systems, the Fortus 250mc utilizes Stratasys Fused Deposition Modeling™ (FDM®) technology to build parts from the bottom up with precisely deposited layers of modeling and support material.

The Fortus 250mc delivers reliable, flexible part production for prototyping and direct digital manufacturing -- all at an affordable price.

Advanced FDM
FDM is the industry's leading additive manufacturing technology, and the only one that uses production grade thermoplastics, enabling the most durable parts.

No special facilities needed
Customers can install a Fortus 3D Production System just about anywhere. No special venting is required because Fortus systems don't produce noxious fumes, chemicals or waste.

No special skills needed
Fortus 3D Production Systems are easy to operate and maintain compared to other additive fabrication systems because there are no messy powders or resins to handle and contain. They're so simple, an operator can be trained to operate a Fortus system in less than 30 minutes.

About 3D Printing
3D printing offers a fast, low-cost alternative for building concept and working models. Using durable acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic, Stratasys 3D printers build functional 3D models from the bottom up, one layer at a time.

Designed for workstation and network access, 3D printers are small, affordable, and suitable for office installation near the end user providing convenience and ease.

Stratasys 3D printers can help you quickly fine tune designs and cut weeks, even months, from your development schedule. Now you can test form, fit and function and explore as many design iterations as you like -- over your network, right from your desktop.

While there are many variables in comparing service provider costs with internal 3D printing costs, i.e., part complexity, size and tolerances, etc., a company sending one relatively simple part per week to an outside service provider could, by comparison, pay for a 3D printer in a matter of months -- and maintain control and confidentiality internally.
