Figure 4 Standalone
Figure 4 Standalone is the industrial solution for low cost models
Convenient and versatile for low volume production and rapid prototyping. Figure 4 Standalone offers quality and precision with industry-leading durability, service and support.
Low production volume and rapid prototyping for tens and hundreds of parts per month
Capable of digital texturing that does not affect the quality of injection molded parts and without tooling costs, Figure 4 Standalone is compatible with a variety of robust materials. In addition to manual material feeding, Figure 4 Standalone has separate post-processing units available for cleaning, drying and curing.

Figure 4 – Series
Make 3D production perfect with modular and scalable factory solutions
The first fully integrated, scalable, high-speed 3D printing platform. This enables up to 15 times more productivity improvement and up to 20% lower part costs.
Figure 4 makes 3D production a reality, with increased productivity, durability, repeatability and reduced total cost of operation (TCO). Figure 4, in fact, provides productivity thanks to its speed and automation with precise and repeatable parts in real time. It also has Six Sigma performance proven in a wide range of robust, production quality materials.
High speed digital printing
Figure 4 offers fast additive manufacturing technology in discrete modules, allowing them to be fed into automated assembly lines and integrated with secondary processes, including washing, drying and curing of end-use parts. Digital stamping also reduces development costs, increases productivity and eliminates tooling costs and time.
The digital stamping process speeds up and simplifies production by automating the production of low-volume plastic parts. Figure 4 offers repeatable, CAD-accurate part accuracy with agile, in-line production.
Modular platform grows with production needs
Supplied in configurable units for scalability at any time, Figure 4 thus allows production capacity to grow with demand. From an independent printer for rapid prototyping and direct production of low volumes in 3D, to modular systems that grow as volume increases, to a fully automated and integrated factory solution.
Wide range of materials
3D Systems’ Materials Design Center has over 30 years of proven experience in process research and development. The production grade materials available for Figure 4 therefore include a wide range of materials to enable real replacement of traditional molding and urethane casting.
Increase your workflow with Sprint 3D™
Figure 4 uses 3D Sprint™. Advanced 3D Systems software for preparing, editing, printing and managing files from a single, intuitive interface. 3D Sprint enables the customer to significantly reduce the cost of ownership of 3D printers, thereby reducing the need for expensive software from third-party vendors. 3D Sprint also automatically generates exceptionally efficient media that requires much less material, which leads to significant savings.
