Purchase 3D Printers
For anyone who wants to take 3D Printing in-house, Potomac Photonics is a 3D Systems Corporation Authorized Re-seller. The Rock Hill, SC Company was founded by Chuck Hull, the inventor of stereolithography, which was the first 3D Printing. 3D Systems offers a broad range of 3D Printers that are designed specifically for the end-user’s needs.
Our extensive experience using 3D Systems 3D Printers in our own facility for jobs from prototype to production, means we can help you choose the right 3D Printer for your own facility, plus we have our own in-house service department to keep you up and running.
Contact us today for equipment specifications and to discuss your application, whether for production, professional, or education 3D Printing applications.
Here are a few of the 3D Printers we particularly like and some background on the applications for which they are best suited
ProJet 3500 Series
The Projet 3500 Series of Professional printers are meant for the designer, engineer, dental lab, or prototype house needing high quality, durable plastic parts for functional testing, form and fit verification, rapid tooling and more.
From the most affordable experience in the 3510 range, to the most sophisticated, the ProJet 3500 series is right for all the demanding situations of a 3D Printing professional. These 3D printers use the VisiJet Materials, offering UV-curable plastic, in a range of colors, translucencies and tensile strengths and white melt-away wax is used for support material making post-processing easy and non-toxic.
RealWax™ is also available for the ProJet CP 3D Printers and they are ideal for general foundry casting applications such as medium-sized to large mechanical parts, while wax parts produced on the ProJet CPX are micro-detail patterns with superior surface quality, and extreme fine detail for jewelry and other detailed applications.
All in all, the ProJet 3500 Series line of 3D printers gives you a myriad of options at an affordable price. Contact us today to see which printer fits your needs exactly!
