Polyjet Technology

Full-Color Printing with Extreme Resolution

The Technology

Polyjet 3D printing is our highest resolution printing method, with layer heights as small as half the width of a human skin cell (14 microns). Liquid photopolymer resins are blended together to form hundreds of unique materials and colors which are then deposited on the print tray. The resin is cured by a UV lamp as it is applied, layer by layer, until the part is completed. Internal cavities and overhangs are supported using a water-soluble support material, so post-processing is fast and easy.

Using a blend of resins, our Stratasys J750 printers can create full-color parts from a database of 500,000 unique color options. We also have the ability to produce rigid or flexible parts depending on your needs. 

The Materials

We offer a wide range of printing materials including the full line of Vero materials, Agilus30, Rigur, and Digital ABS. The Vero line of acrylic-like materials offer full-color capabilities as well as transparent printing. Transparent materials are great for creating cutaways, displays, and nameplates with opaque bodies inside the clear material. With vivid materials, we are even able to select colors using the Pantone matching system. 

In conjunction with Agilus30, we can print rubber-like materials in a range of Shore A durometer values between 30 (gel shoe insole) and 95 (car tire). Rigid materials are mixed with Agilus30 to achieve the different Shore values, so flexible parts can be assigned colors as well.

Rigur enables the printing of polypropylene-like materials with adequate toughness and moderate flexibility. Digital ABS is our strongest polyjet material and offers the best temperature resistance. 

General Uses

Polyjet printing has a multitude of uses due to the wide range of materials available. With the use of Vero materials, it is possible to create full-color, highly realistic models with texture and unrivaled accuracy. This makes Polyjet an ideal choice for producing life-like prototypes or vibrant display models.

Flexible materials are frequently used to prototype seal designs and simulate tissues in medical models. Using the full range of Shore A durometers, it is possible to create flexible parts such as shoe insoles, tires, and surgical planning models that can be cut.

Our performance materials, Rigur and Digital ABS, are excellent materials for prototyping. Due to their high toughness and improved heat resistance, these materials are common choices for molds, living hinges, and snap-fit assemblies.
