StereoScan NEO is launched


We are just back from the launch event at Aicon's head office in Braunschweig, Germany to see the new StereoScan NEO. The highlights of this new high-end scanner are as follows:

- super fast DLP projector for fringes

- white, blue, green and red light projection

- no optolink black box

- super high resolution 8 and 16 megapixel cameras

- backlit projection to highlight 3D colour inspection analysis back onto the part

- auto alignment of scans

- option to use CAD for alignment

- Binning mode for even faster data acquisition

- improved robotic programming

NOW available in the UK from CDG

Nylon material for CubePro available now


3D Systems brings engineering-grade materials to the desktop with Nylon material cartridges for the CubePro.

The new Nylon materials is tough, smooth and flexible for lighter weight, higher impact parts. It enables short-run manufacturing of durable parts and is compatible with the new Infinity Rinse-Away water-soluble support - required for printing complex geometries and articulated parts.


Advantages of Nylon

  • Nylon is strong and durable, making it perfect for functional, rigorous testing;

  • Nylon is flexible and resilient, giving it the ability to move, bend and return to its original shape without breaking or cracking;

  • Nylon is compatible with Infinity Rinse Away soluble support material, enabling a beautifully clean finish on complex, organic or intricate geometries.


How to order

Nylon is immediately available for the CubePro 3D printers - available in Natural, White & Black.

Order now in CDG's online store.

New rubber materials for ProJet 5500X


3DS has announced they have strengthened their new ProJet 5500X with two new materials. Allowing for quality and printing of fine details, the ProJet 5500X features speed, volume, and ease for creating parts with plastic and rubber properties. Now, users of the ProJet 5500X can look forward to two new VisiJet elastomeric materials:-

Black (VisiJet® CE-BK)Natural-translucent (VisiJet® CE-NT) with an emphasis on ‘flexible versus rigid,’ the new materials present users with extreme flexibility and durability, putting an end to breakage and tearing. Featuring elongation to break of up to 700%, the material can be harshly manipulated through stretching, contorting, and many different configurations under which it is guaranteed to withstand pressure without failing. With the amount of effort and complexity that go into many large scale 3D designs and prints, preventing breakage and failure is a priority, and often a challenge.

Stretchy 5500X Engineers and designers should be impressed with the performance when printing items such as pipes and gaskets, focusing on simplicity, efficiency, and quality. With the overall quality of the printer itself and the addition of the super strong new materials, users are afforded more options combined with the ability to make stronger, quality parts. Productivity is improved, as is the bottom line, with build speeds that are twice as fast with precise, detailed production.

The new materials are a combination of elastomeric materials with 3DS ABS-like plastics (CR-WT or CR-CL) that produce a variety of materials—due to different colors and levels of strength—for the most challenging 3D printing projects.

The ProJet 5500X is for:-

  • Overmolded parts
  • Multi-material assemblies
  • Rubber-like components
  • Long-lasting living hinges
  • High-temperature testing
