The 3D Systems ProJet 5500X is a professional 3D printer made by 3D Systems, a manufacturer based in the USA.

The 3D Systems ProJet 5500X has been replaced by the 3D Systems ProJet MJP 5600. However it is possible for the ProJet 5500X owners to upgrade their software to the latest version available.

The 3D Systems ProJet 5500X 3D printer uses the MultiJet (MJP) 3D printing technology. MJP 3D printers 3D print thin layers of UV-curable liquid plastic onto a platform, using wax to create supports that brace the part during production. UV lamps cure each layer, and the build platform lowers for the next layer. This process continues layer by layer until the part is complete.

The 3D Systems ProJet ProJet 5500X is great for a variety of applications, including overmolded parts, multi-material assemblies, rubber-like components, long-lasting living hinges and high-temperature testing.
