PolyJet is a powerful 3D printing technology that produces smooth, accurate parts, prototypes and tooling. Polyjet works by jetting ultra-thin layers of curable liquid photopolymer onto a build tray, creating a solid, plastic-like model that is precise and accurate. With microscopic layer resolution and accuracy down to 0.1 mm, it can produce thin walls and complex geometries using the widest range of materials available with any technology.
PolyJet technology offers the unique ability to print parts and assemblies made of multiple model materials, with different mechanical or physical properties, all in a single build. PolyJet is capable of building very precise mechanical components, offering you high-quality prototypes for a shorter time to market.
Pre-processing: Build-preparation software automatically calculates the placement of photopolymers and support material from a 3D CAD file.
Production: The 3D printer jets and instantly UV-cures tiny droplets of liquid photopolymer. Fine layers accumulate on the build tray to create one or several precise 3D models or parts. Where overhangs or complex shapes require support, the 3D printer jets a removable support material.
Support removal: The user easily removes the support material by hand, with water or in a solution bath. Models and parts are ready to handle and use right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.
