3D Printing has always been considered for rapid prototyping.  We wrote last week how Voodoo Manufacturing is changing that with robotics, but now 3D Systems has introduced it's Figure 4 production platform which the company says produces plastic parts 50 times faster than comparable 3D printing systems.  The 3D Printing system is both modular and scalable, making it attractive to small and large companies.  

3D Systems is targeting the dental industry as one of their first industries to implement their Figure 4 platform. Though they are already in the dental industry, their new system could expand their impact there since they just recently acquired NextDent, a company that creates materials for the dental industry.
