3D Systems’ Infocenter Moves to Salesforce

The Infocenter has been the 3D Systems portal for customer-facing and service-facing product documentation (for example videos, software downloads, and material SDSs).  

As of Sept 26, 2022, the Infocenter content will be moved to Salesforce and will be accessible through the Salesforce Community

Service Documentation Only

To access service documentation, you will need to sign into Salesforce Community using your Salesforce username and password. Everyone trained and currently authorized to service a particular printer will be able to access its service documentation.

The following paragraphs provide general first-aid procedures and recommendations for protective equipment to minimize the risks from print material exposure. If professional medical attention is necessary, take the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for the exact print material involved to the attending physician.

Skin Contact

Figure 4 resin may cause sensitization by skin contact. It is irritating to the skin; repeated and/or prolonged contact may cause dermatitis. Wear 100% nitrile gloves and lab coats to avoid skin contact. Should print material come in contact with skin, wash thoroughly with soap and COLD water and immediately remove contaminated clothing and shoes. If skin is irritated, get medical attention. Dry-clean contaminated clothing. Discard contaminated shoes and leather products.

Eye Contact

High vapor concentration may cause irritation. Safety goggles should be worn to prevent accidental splashes of print material into the eyes. If print material comes in contact with the eye, flush immediately with large amounts of COLD water for 15 minutes. Avoid sunlight, fluorescent light, and other ultraviolet light, and obtain immediate medical attention. Eye-wash facilities and a first-aid kit should be readily available and close to the print material.

Contact Lenses

If print material splashes into the eye when contact lenses are worn, flush the eye with water immediately. Verify that flushing has removed the contact lens from the eye. Protect eyes from light and obtain immediate medical attention. Discard contact lenses that come into contact with liquid print material.

Fume Inhalation

Inhaling fumes from Figure 4 resin is irritating to the respiratory system. High atmospheric concentrations may lead to irritation of the respiratory tract, dizziness, headache and anesthetic effects. Do not operate the Figure 4 Standalone Printer without its carbon filter in place. Normal operation of the printer with filter in place should not emit fumes. However, if a person should inhale printer fumes, bring the exposed person to fresh air. Perform CPR if required. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen and obtain immediate medical attention for the person.


Do not induce vomiting. Never induce vomiting or give anything by mouth if the victim is unconscious or having convulsions. Immediately rinse mouth and drink plenty of water. Get medical attention.
