SLA-1 Designated Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark by ASME

Life is an intricate compilation of moments. When we look back on them as a society and as individuals, some of these moments strike us with special significance: the advent of the automobile; the introduction of flight; the ability to launch beyond the outer limits of our atmosphere and explore space. Last week, 3D Systems was honored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for ushering in one of these society-altering moments via the commercialization of the first-ever 3D printer, the SLA-1.
