3D Systems Highlights GM Design

3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) announced today that General Motors, an early adopter of 3D printing, continues to extend the technology boundaries so that designers and engineers from its studios and technical centers around the world are able to see and touch their creations faster and at lower cost through the digital manufacturing capabilities at the GM Design Center.

Selective laser sintering (SLS®) and Stereolithography (SLA®) 3D printers from 3D Systems allow designers to quickly and affordably go from computer models to one-off parts for evaluation and wind-tunnel testing so more iterations can be tested in a less time. GM engineers and manufacturing personnel use rapid prototype parts to reduce tooling costs and speed up the validation and early build processes.  Every GM program benefits from rapid prototyping technology during development.

"General Motors, one of the first automotive companies to embrace our solutions, is leveraging 3D printing for rapid prototyping as well as the manufacture of real, end use parts," said Abe Reichental, CEO and President of 3D Systems. "The opportunity to partner with innovators like GM Design provides tangible customer and marketplace benefits well beyond transportation."

"3D rapid prototyping is enabling the designers and engineers at Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac to stretch the creative envelope," said John Green, Superintendent, GM Design Fabrication Operations. "We can bring more attractive, functional and aerodynamic vehicles to market in less time and at lower cost than ever before."
