3D Systems Corp. (Rock Hill, S.C.) has announced the iPro 9000 XL SLA (stereolithography) center for the production of extra-large, high-definition Pro Parts for prototyping and end use. The machine features an extra-large build platform (59 by 30 by 22 inches/1500 by 750 by 550 mm) and is said to be the largest commercially available stereolithography platform. The system is the third model in the recently introduced, modular iPro 9000 SLA line, adding a third platform configuration alternative to the current single and dual Resin Delivery Modules (RDM). The family of machines produces durable plastic parts from the company’s family of integrated Accura plastics, which reportedly exhibit good surface smoothness and feature resolution, edge definition and dimensional tolerances that rival the accuracy of CNC-machined plastic parts. The machines feature the ProScan digital scanning system, which features a SteadyPower imager to help improve performance and repeatability.
