A SINGLE PRINT, NO ASSEMBLIES

Imagine 3D-printing an object in one single print, with different materials for different parts. Although it seems just a dream, it is a reality, made true with the new printer by Stratasys, the J750.

Three-dimensional printing came to revolutionize the world of manufacturing. It feels like science-fiction, to be able to print entire object without needing to assemble or colouring. Nonetheless, it is a reality, and it will have an incredible impact in various industries.

The new J750 by Stratasys is an incredible breakthrough when it comes to 3D printing. Up until now, printers were limited in terms of material variety, as they could only print parts in one material, to be assembled later. With J750, a complex object, in various colours and materials can be produced in hours.

This printer is able to blend up to six materials in specific concentrations and microstructures on the build tray without swapping canisters, thus providing the possibility of hundreds of thousands of colours, translucencies, and durometers. Any combination of materials can be assigned, from rigid or flexible, to transparent or opaque materials and their composites. You can blend Rigid Opaque materials to 3D print in over 360,000 colours, add rubber-like materials for a range of bright and subtle colours, opacities and elastomer characteristics, or incorporate transparent materials to vary tint and opacity.

Its precision is impressive as well. This printer can produce ultra-smooth surfaces and fine details in layers as thin as 0.014 mm, build in sizes up to 490 x 390 x 200 mm (19.3 x 15.35 x 7.9 in.) with an accuracy of 20-85 microns for pieces smaller than 50 mm, and up to 200 microns for full model size (rigid materials only). It also features a resolution of 600 dpi on the X- and Y-axes, and 1800 dpi on the Z-axis.

The PolyJet Studio software supplied by Stratasys, and directed at the J750, allows for a simple selection of the specificities of each piece. Its intuitive interface makes it easy to choose materials, optimize the build, and manage print queues. It furthermore includes the ability to add colour textures and gradients, saving you time during build preparation. Plus, it features automatic colour mapping of over 360,000 colours, for photorealistic models.

This printer was created with the purpose of accelerating the prototyping process. With the J750, a prototype can be printed in a matter of hours, without the need for assembling and colouring, thus allowing designers and engineers to feel and touch their creations faster than ever, accelerating the validation and presentation of the piece. Now, not only the creators, but the clients as well, can experience the final product, and provide immediate updates or specifications based on the actual object, furthermore accelerating the final delivery.

The company

Stratasys works in 3D printing since 1988, when Scott Crump invented FDM (fused deposition modelling) by mixing wax and plastic in the family kitchen. In 1989, he founded the company Stratasys, which, in 1994, was already innovating, when it introduced the first thermoplastic available for 3D printing. In 2008, Stratasys launches the first 3D printer for production, and in 2014, introduces the first-ever colour and multi-material 3D printer.

The company with which Stratasys merged in 2012, Objet, was founded in 1998, by former printing industry entrepreneurs. In 2007, this company introduced the world's first multi-material 3D printer, and in 2012, it announced world's first desktop 3D printer with seven materials.

Stratasys has been a pioneer in 3D printing for over 25 years. Today, they work in fields of aerospace, automotive and education. Manufacturers, designers, creators, engineers trust in Stratasys to produce their creations, and expand the possibilities. The company is proud to offer the best mix of technologies, deep industry expertise, and the most flexible implementation options.
