     Stratasys Announces New High Speed "FDM Quantum" Rapid
     Prototyping System
     MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 26, 1998--Stratasys, Inc. (NASDAQ
     NMS:SSYS - news) today announced its
     new large high-speed rapid prototyping (RP) system, the FDM
     Quantum(TM). By incorporating the new
     MagnaDrive(TM) technology, the FDM Quantum achieves very fast
     throughput, superior ABS part quality, accuracy and
     reliability. This system builds parts up to 2.5 to 5 times faster than
     the company's current FDM systems. Additionally, a
     much larger build envelope enables users to create sizable functional
     prototypes, tooling patterns and masters.
     The FDM Quantum allows users to build high throughput prototypes in
     sizes up to 600 x 500 x 600 mm (23.6 x 19.7 x
     23.6 inches) in ABS plastic, making it a strong RP tool for the
     aerospace, automotive and consumer goods industries.
     The new TouchWorks(TM) command center offers simplified system
     control. It allows users to select build options
     and to check part build status and material levels. The FDM Quantum
     operates in an office environment without the
     need for venting. Stratasys' proprietary QuickSlice(R) software
     automatically slices the part and, if necessary,
     generates supports. QuickSlice operates on Windows NT,
     Hewlett-Packard, Silicon Graphics and Sun Microsystem
     With the addition of the FDM Quantum, Stratasys offers the largest
     selection of RP systems in the industry. Stratasys
     RP systems cover the entire product development process, from the
     Genisys 3D printer for fast iterations of concepts,
     to high-speed FDM systems for producing precision functional
     prototypes, tooling patterns and masters.
     Stratasys Inc., founded in 1989, is a manufacturer of rapid
     prototyping systems for automotive, aerospace, industrial,
     recreation, electronic, medical and consumer products OEMs. The
     Company's patented Fused Deposition Modeling
     (FDM(TM)) and Genisys rapid prototyping processes create 3-dimensional
     plastic, elastomers and wax prototype parts
     directly from 3-D CAD systems. The Company is located at 14950 Martin
     Drive, Eden Prairie, Minnesota 55344-2020.
