How It Works
With PolyJet technology, a jetting head slides back and forth along the X-axis, similar to a line printer, depositing a single super-thin layer of photopolymer onto the build tray. Immediately after building each layer, UV bulbs alongside the jetting bridge emit UV light, immediately curing and hardening each layer. This step eliminates the additional post curing required by other technologies.
- 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: Support material can easily be removed 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.
- PolyJet technology offers exceptional detail, surface smoothness and precision.
- Create smooth, detailed prototypes that convey final-product aesthetics.
- Produce accurate molds, jigs, fixtures and other manufacturing tools.
- Achieve complex shapes, intricate details and delicate features.
- Incorporate the widest variety of colors and materials into a single model for unbeatable efficiency.
