Combining smooth surface finish and highly accurate geometries with a large selection of materials and material combinations, PolyJet technology provides unprecedented product realism through a clean process suitable for both office and desktop environments.

Polyjet Materials: A Range of Possibilities

3D printing using PolyJet technology produces highly realistic, functional 3D models in a wide range of materials with properties that span from rigid to rubber and opaque to transparent. In that range, there are materials that perform much like engineering plastics that combine toughness and heat resistance. Using PolyJet photopolymers, designers, engineers and artists can create highly accurate, finely detailed models to answer the prototyping needs of virtually any industry.


Top Five Reasons to Integrate Polyjet Technology into Your Product Development Lifecycle

Rapid prototyping technology has progressed significantly over the years improving on both the cost and quality fronts. Circa 2000, PolyJetTM technology was introduced to the market, a jetting process of photopolymer resin in ultra-thin individual layers that builds 3D models and prototypes. The resin is simultaneously cured with a UV light during the layering process, an approach that allows for the printing of several materials at once including flexible, rubber-like materials, rigid materials, opaque and transparent materials and even composite Digital Materials. Newer 3D printers allow for up to three components to be combined into a single material, including the option to combine Digital ABSTM with a third base resin.


Transforming Students into Inquisitive Creators

Not surprisingly, as manufacturing, making and innovation converge in education, 3D printing is becoming more crucial to curriculums. As the following examples demonstrate, giving students access to 3D printers turns them into thinkers, designers and builders — the kinds of disciplines that form the heart of higher education in the 21st century.


Polyjet Materials: A Range of Possibilities

Materials are critical to prototyping and production success. At the heart of any great application is the right material: one that performs as needed under the application’s conditions. This is just as true for 3D printing as it has always been for molding, machining and casting. While the 3D printing industry has a wide variety of materials to choose from, ranging from plastic to metal and wax to paper, the selection is often quite limited for a given technology. It is even more restricted for specific 3D printers, with one exception.


Water-Based Antimicrobial Coating For 3D Printed Medical Devices

3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is an emerging technology used to implement new concepts and explore new possibilities. One example is the creation of 3D printed medical devices that have been specially designed to meet the needs of different patients.


Maximizing Multi-Material and Colour Possibilities with the Objet500 Connex3

Connex 3D Printing was a major advancement in additive manufacturing. Launched in 2007, this PolyJetTM technology was the first to offer multi-material 3D printing. A single part, or any collection of parts in a build, can have dozens of distinct material properties ranging from rigid plastic to rubber-like and opaque to transparent. Connex 3D Printers achieve this by jetting two base model materials, in varying combinations, to build a part.
