Stratasys has launched its innovative 3D printer, model J750. The new solution breaks restrictive technology barriers, enabling customers to mix-and-match full color gradients alongside a wide range of materials to achieve one-stop realism without post-processing. This, together with the system versatility, makes the J750 a cutting-edge solution for product designers, engineers and manufacturers, as well as service bureaus. Stratasys J750, the premier addition to the Objet Connex multi-color, multi-material series of 3D printers, allows customers to choose from more than 360,000 different color shades plus multiple material properties – ranging from rigid to flexible and opaque to transparent. Prototypes can include a vast array of colors, materials and material properties in the same part, speeding production of realistic models, prototypes and parts and delivering great 3D printing versatility to produce tooling, molds, jigs and fixtures and more. “The J750 enables near instantaneous decision-making by streamlining the way products are designed, evaluated and brought to market – Stratasys explains -. A true industry milestone, the productivity-boosting J750 is expected to improve TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) by eliminating many of the traditional complex processes, time and resources required to create product-matching prototypes. Designers and engineers can physically experience true product prototypes within hours of developing an initial concept for immediate design and function validation with internal stakeholders and end users. Design decisions can be made instantaneously and with full confidence to help accelerate product delivery”. Besides, the one-stop realism of the J750 is supported with a streamlined workflow beginning with the new PolyJet Studio. The new intuitive user interface of the software allows users to simply choose materials, optimize the build and manage print queues. Assignment of colors, transparencies and rigidity is eased via familiar design controls. Color textures can be loaded fully intact via VRML files imported from CAD tools.
The Stratasys J750 also minimizes downtime associated with material changeovers. Featuring a large, six-material capacity, it keeps the most used resins loaded and ready for printing. The printer presents newly designed print heads that allow to simulate production plastics, like Digital ABS. “They can be 3D printed in half the time of other Stratasys PolyJet systems – said Stratasys -. As 3D printed models are delivered complete with full colors, color textures and multiple materials, no time is wasted on painting and assembly”.
