3D Systems, one of the largest 3D printing companies in the world announced that it will participate and feature its new Figure 4 additive production platform at the 30th annual Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) scheduled to take place in St. Louis, Missouri in the United States.
What is Figure 4?
Figure 4 is 3D Systems’ additive production platform and industry’s first scalable, fully-integrated factory solution for direct 3D production, which accelerates and simplifies the fabrication of plastic parts with high speed digital molding, while at the same time produces the same accuracy, reliability and repeatability offered by traditional injection molding.
Invented by 3D Systems’ Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Chuck Hull, Figure 4 is a combination of production-grade materials and ultra-fast print technology, which enables 15 times throughput improvements when compared with competitive offerings and at 20% less cost than existing manufacturing processes.
In addition to featuring the Figure 4, 3D Systems, along with its customers will also share strategies and workflows for 3D printing solutions to make manufacturing more effective, responsive as well as cost effective.
Since its inception, the company has been working with customers in different categories ranging from metals, investment casting and new materials to help them implement innovative solutions and reduce costs as well as cycle times without compromising productivity.
Speaking about how the company has been designing solutions that meet every customers’ needs, Vyomesh Joshi, President and Chief Executive Officer, 3D Systems said, “When you look at the 3D Systems eco-system, we place the customer at the center of everything we do.”

We integrate services, materials, software, and technology into an end-to-end solution that redefines processes and ultimately benefits their business,” Joshi added.
In its 30th edition, the AMUG Conference is considered as a conference “by users for users”. It will involve a host of presentations which will also include a presentation by Chuck Hull, also known as the Father of 3D printing. At the conference, companies from different industries will also demonstrate how they are integrating 3D printing into their workflow and will highlight the benefits they are achieving because of 3D printing.
