Stratasys, one of the leading 3D printing companies in the world, is pushing the boundaries of 3D printed realism by launching the next-generation of its powerful, full-colour, multi-material Polyjet™ J850™ 3D Printer. The newest version of J850 Polyjet 3D printer boasts of increased speed, faster productivity & exceptional print quality for designers and engineers with greater material capacity and faster printing.
Compared to traditional modelling, the J850 can shorten the overall modelling time by up to 50 percent at a significantly lower cost.
The new J850 Polyjet 3D printer offers advanced settings that can produce concept models twice as fast as the earlier J-Series systems. This new Super High-Speed Mode gives designers and engineers more time for part refinement by printing concept models at double the speed. Additionally, the J850’s larger, seven-material capacity enables designers to print a full range of colour, transparency and flexibility combinations in a single part.
Appreciating the new J850 Polyjet 3D printer, Alex Padwa, Founder of Padwa Design, a premier industrial design studio building solutions for consumer goods, high technology, and the household said, “Stratasys Polyjet technology gives designers endless possibilities. With this solution, there’s no need to add or switch technologies throughout the design process. We can immediately achieve the exact design intent we have in mind – and bring it to life in our hands instantly. The J850 is truly designed for designers.”
Speaking at the launch, Shamir Shoham, Vice President, PolyJet Business Unit at Stratasys said, “The new J850 has been built to meet the needs of the full design process in industries such as consumer goods, consumer electronics, automotive, as well as educational settings. Typically, that process includes two separate streams: evaluating geometric shapes with a physical single-color model and considering color and texture on the screen. The J850 merges these two mediums into one full-color, multi-material model to make better design decisions, earlier.”
Along with the next-generation printer, Stratasys is also introducing two new PolyJet materials – VeroUltraClear™ & DraftGrey™.
- VeroUltraClear™ material can deliver high clarity and finely detailed models that are similar in appearance to glass. VeroUltraClear can help designers visualize internal features and create concept models that verify the design of clear parts.
- DraftGrey™ is a low-cost concept material that is ideal for fast, affordable iterations at the beginning of the design process.
Additionally, the J850 Polyjet 3D printer also provides PANTONE Validated™ colours – offering a universal language of colour that ensures reliable, realistic decision-making across every stage of the design process. Fully supported by GrabCAD Print™ software, the J850 can 3D print directly from a user’s favourite professional CAD format to avoid time and complexity associated with converting STL files.
