What’s FabPro’s Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology?

DLP or Digital Light Processing refers to a method of printing that makes use of light and photosensitive polymers. While it is very similar to stereolithography, the key difference is the light source. DLP utilizes traditional light-sources like arc lamps.

In most forms of DLP, each layer of the desired structure is projected onto a vat of liquid resin that is then solidified layer by layer as the build-plate moves up or down. As the process does each layer successively, it is quicker than most forms of 3D Printing.

FabPro 1000: the Best Desktop Entry-Level Industrial 3D Printer

The FabPro™ 1000 DLP 3D Printer from 3D Systems™ is a desktop solution to professional and industrial problems, with a desktop price to match.

Ideal for Engineering and Jewelry applications, the FabPro™ 1000 excels at low-volume, small-part prototyping and direct 3D production across a wide range of high-quality materials.

FabPro™ 1000 packs industrial durability and reliability into a rugged yet compact platform, delivering professional quality day in and day out. And it’s simple to use, from material loading and file configuration to post-processing.

• High-quality precision parts
• Up to 3x faster high throughput print speeds than competing systems
• Easy to use plug and play solution
• Industrial-grade materials for jewelry and prototyping

Powered by DLP (Digital Light Processing) projection technology that cures an entire layer of photopolymer at once, the FabPro 1000 prints significantly faster than SLA (stereolithography) machines that use a laser to draw each layer for polymerization.

3D Sprint™: Easy-to-Use Software

3D Sprint™

Preparing part files for printing and monitoring print jobs is easy with 3D Systems 3D Sprint software, which comes standard with every FabPro 1000. This robust additive manufacturing software streamlines printing preparation through file importing, editing, repairing, and slicing and optimizes part placement on the platform with support creation and nesting.

  • Easy build job set-up, submission and job queue management
  • Automatic part placement and build optimization tools
  • Part nesting capability and part editing tools
  • Automatic support generation
  • Job statistics

Produce Parts in Hours, Not Days

Produce models in hours, not days with the FabPro 1000. Compared to competing systems, the FabPro 1000 can create higher-quality parts with precision and smooth finish at up to three-times-faster high-throughput print speeds.  How? Our technology uses a projector to image each layer for easy and precise printing, with the ability to build several smaller parts on a single platform for increased productivity.

Lower Costs, Delivered

The FabPro 1000 is engineered for material efficiency and consistent, repeatable runtimes, making 3D prototyping and production more accessible and affordable than ever before. 3D Sprint file preparation and print management software help manage material usage with less waste with optimized print builds and support structures. This combination of fast print speeds and optimized printing all leads to lower part costs and lower Total Cost of Operations (TCO).

A wide range of Quality and Printable Materials

From tough engineering plastics to castable resins, FabPro materials are designed for accuracy and quality.  Additionally, our easy-to-load materials enable quick set up and mess-free printing.

The FabPro can work with nine different materials, including resins specially designed for making prototypes, functional parts, dental molds, surgical guides, and flexible components like seals and gaskets, and the included 3D Sprint software is compatible with 13 file types, more than any other resin 3D printer.
