Greater affordability makes 3D printing available to more designers and engineers
MINNEAPOLIS - The Dimension brand of 3D printers by Stratasys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSYS), today announced that it has reduced the base price of its Elite and 1200es 3D printers. The Elite, previously priced at $32,900 is now available for $29,900. The SST 1200es (with Soluble Support Technology) is now priced at $32,900, down from $34,900, and the BST 1200es (with Breakaway Support Technology) is now just $18,900, reduced from $26,900.
“Our decision to reduce the price of our popular Elite and 1200es series is part of our long-term commitment to providing the market with the highest quality 3D printing technology at the most affordable prices,” said Jon Cobb, Stratasys vice president of sales and marketing for the Americas.
In addition, Stratasys will discontinue production of its Dimension 768 Series 3D printers – though parts and material will continue to be available for current owners.
“With the introduction of the uPrint Personal 3D Printer this past January and the price reductions on the Elite and 1200es Series, we now have a complete product offering ranging from $14,900 to $32,900. We have a variety of prices and feature sets to meet the needs of our design and engineering customers,” said Cobb.
Dimension is a brand of 3D printers by Stratasys that offers CAD (computer-aided-design) users a low-cost, networked alternative for building functional 3D models from the desktop. The printers build models layer-by-layer using ABS plastic, one of the most widely used thermoplastics in today’s injection-molded products. Dimension 3D printers allow users to evaluate design concepts and test models for functionality, form and fit.
