Figure 4 Modular

UPGRADEABLE 3D PRODUCTION SOLUTION DESIGN TO SCALE WITH GROWTH

An affordable 3D production solution that grows with your business for prototyping and direct 3D production.

Figure 4 Modular is ideal for medium output, and features an automated material feed system. With expandable capacity up to 24 print engines, Figure 4 Modular enables affordable part production in a flexible, modular system architecture, offering separate post-processing units for cleaning, drying, and curing. With the flexibility to adapt to production layouts, Figure 4 Modular is an affordable 3D production solution that grows with your business, perfect when a single high throughput line can serve a multitude of parts being produced, and centralized post-processing is preferred.

Fast Turnaround
Achieve same-day functional prototyping iteration and low-volume production with ultra-high print speeds. New designs can be delivered in short time frames to maintain momentum throughout development.


Manufacturing Redefined

3D Systems Figure 4 makes 3D production a reality—with increased productivity, durability, repeatability and lower total cost of operations (TCO). Figure 4 delivers productivity enabled through speed and automation with real world repeatable, accurate parts with demonstrated Six Sigma performance in a diverse range of robust, production-grade materials.

 

Modular Platform Grows with Manufacturing Needs

Delivered in configurable units for anytime scalability, Figure 4 allows manufacturing capacity to grow alongside demand – from a standalone printer for rapid prototyping and low volume direct 3D production, to modular systems that grow as your volume grows, up to a fully-automated, fully-integrated factory solution.


High Speed Digital Molding

Figure 4™ delivers ultra-fast additive manufacturing technology in discrete modules, allowing it to be placed into automated assembly lines and integrated with secondary processes, including the washing, drying and curing of end-use parts. Digital molding reduces development costs, increases productivity by eliminating the cost and time of expensive tooling. The digital molding workflow process speeds and simplifies production with automation of low volume plastic parts production. Figure 4 delivers repeatable, true-to-CAD part accuracy in an agile, in-line manufacturing workflow.

Broad Range of Materials

3D Systems’ Material Design Center has over 30 years of proven R&D experience and process development expertise. The production-grade materials available for Figure 4 include a broad and expanding range of materials to enable true replacement of traditional molding and urethane casting.

 


Advance Your Workflow with 3D Sprint

Figure 4 solutions use 3D Sprint™, 3D Systems’ advanced software for file preparation, editing, printing and management from a single, intuitive interface. 3D Sprint enables the customer to significantly decrease cost of ownership of their 3D printers by reducing the need for costly software seats by third party vendors. 3D Sprint automatically generates exceptionally efficient supports requiring far less material, which can lead to significant savings.
