ROCK HILL, S.C., July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today the immediate availability of a new plastic injection molding-like material– VisiJet® M3 Black for use in its ProJet® 3500/3510 professional 3D printers. VisiJet M3 Black further expands the range of use cases of the company's ProJet printers into more demanding, functional, end use parts and products.

VisiJet M3 Black is the strongest, most durable ProJet 3500/3510 material yet, with excellent toughness and flex properties that make it suitable for snap fit and assembly applications. The beautiful jet-black color mimics injection molded plastic performance so engineers and designers can prototype, test and use parts that look and feel like the final product. Game changing materials like VisiJet M3 Black and VisiJet M3 X turns the ProJet series professional printers into a "factory-in-a-box", further democratizing rapid manufacturing for designers, inventors, entrepreneurs and manufacturers.

"VisiJet M3 Black material is a revolutionary breakthrough in ProJet plastic materials," said Buddy Byrum, Vice President of Product and Channel Management for 3D Systems. "VisiJet M3 Black parts have the toughness and durability for rigorous testing and direct end use. When used in assemblies with other high performance materials like VisiJet M3 X, VisiJet M3 Black allows for design and testing capabilities that are unparalleled."
