3D Systems Teams With The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers

3D Systems Corporation (NYSE:DDD) announced today its collaboration with The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, the national non-profit organization that presents the prestigious Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. 3D Systems also announced the company's joint participation at the National Art Educator Association's 2012 National Convention, March 1 – 4, 2012 at the New York Hilton. 3D Systems will present demonstrations of its classroom ready Cube™ 3D printer in an exclusive unveiling to nearly 7,000 art educators from across the country.

The innovative Cube™ printer technology is the modern representation of the innovation and vision that the Scholastic Awards have encouraged in classrooms across the country for nearly 90 years. The Scholastic Awards are the nation's longest-running, most prestigious recognition program for teenagers and encourages students in the visual and literary arts to submit their most outstanding art and writing for recognition, publication, exhibition and scholarship opportunities. Notable cultural contributors such as Andy Warhol, Truman Capote, Robert Redford, Sylvia Plath, Richard Avedon and Zac Posen have all received Scholastic Awards as teenagers.

The Cube™ 3D printer is packed with education friendly classroom features and comes with a membership to Cubify.com. The Cube™ 3D printer, with coloring book simplicity and affordability, empowers young people and educators alike to express themselves in 3D and to use this advanced technology as a medium to captivate imagination and innovation. As the ultimate online 3D destination for young artists and creators, Cubify.com offers teaching professionals a compelling and unique platform to communicate and collaborate with their students.

"We are thrilled to introduce the art education community to the world of 3D printing," said 3D Systems President and CEO, Abe Reichental. "Bringing tomorrow's tools into the classroom today, is sure to inspire our children to create and make and, as they see their designs come alive, unleash invaluable artistic and innovation skills that are certain to enhance their competitiveness as they enter the employment marketplace."

"Collaborating with 3D Systems is a great way to bring something fun and forward-looking to the attention of art teachers, who are so critical to the success of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards," said Virginia McEnerney, Executive Director for The Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.

"With coloring book simplicity and affordability we believe empowering our kids to express themselves in 3D is becoming an ever more necessary skill and craft," said Reichental. "We are excited to see what the early generations of 3D artists produce."
