Stratasys launches new 3D printer
Features greater material capacity and faster printing
Recently, Stratasys unveiled the next-generation of its full-colour, multi-material PolyJet™ solution – the J850™ 3D Printer. The J850 boosts speed and productivity for designers and engineers with greater material capacity and faster printing while continuing the J-series’ reputation for extremely high print quality and reduced time-to-market. Compared to traditional modelling, the J850 can shorten the overall modelling time by up to 50 percent at significantly lower cost.
Designed for designers, the J850 offers advanced settings that can produce concept models twice as fast as previous J-Series systems. This new Super High Speed Mode gives designers and engineers more time for part refinement by printing concept models at double the speed. In addition, the J850’s larger, seven-material capacity enables designers to print a full range of colour, transparency and flexibility combinations in a single part.
Stratasys is also introducing two new PolyJet materials. The company’s new VeroUltraClear™ material can deliver high clarity and finely detailed models that are similar in appearance to glass. VeroUltraClear can help designers visualize internal features and create concept models that verify the design of clear parts. Additionally, DraftGrey™ is a low-cost concept material that is ideal for fast, affordable iterations in the beginning of the design process.
“Stratasys PolyJet technology gives designers endless possibilities. With this solution, there’s no need to add or switch technologies throughout the design process,” said Alex Padwa, Founder of Padwa Design, a premier industrial design studio building solutions for consumer goods, high technology, and the household. “We can immediately achieve the exact design intent we have in mind – and bring it to life in our hands instantly. The J850 is truly designed for designers.”
