Stratasys 3D Printing
PolyJet & FDM Technology
Fused Deposition Modeling and PolyJet are two of the most advanced and effective manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing technologies available. They span the range from budget-friendly, desktop modeling devices to large-format, factory-floor equipment that will draw from the capital expenditure budget, and which can produce a range of output from precise, finely detailed models to durable production goods.
While there is a crossover in applications and advantages, these two technology platforms are distinctly different and bring unique benefits.
FDM builds concept models, functional prototypes and end-use parts in standard, engineering-grade and high-performance thermoplastics. It’s the only professional 3D printing technology that uses production-grade thermoplastics, so parts are unrivaled in mechanical, thermal and chemical strength.
3D printers powered by PolyJet technology feature 16-micron layers with accuracy as high as 0.1 mm for smooth surfaces, thin walls and complex geometries. It is the only technology that supports a range of materials with properties from rubber to rigid and transparent to opaque. And with Objet Connex technology, multiple materials can even be printed simultaneously in the same part.
