We always keep a close eye on 3D Systems and their blossoming company and as always we are excited to hear about their progress.

3D Systems Corporation announced today that several of its VisiJet(R) materials have met the rigorous requirements for USP Class VI certification, including biocompatibility for healthcare applications. Class VI plastics can be used to produce medical devices, surgical guides and other implements used in and around the human body. These VisiJet(R) materials are now approved for use in a broad set of applications that improve treatment outcomes and patience experience. Through enhanced bio-mimicry, individualized fit and accelerated delivery, medical and dental treatment quality can be enhanced at higher provider productivity and lower costs.

The USP Class VI VisiJet(R) materials listed below are available for immediate delivery and are suitable for:

– 3D printed dental and orthopedic surgical guides;
