Possibilities At Every Turn
Designed for consistent, stable performance, the Stratasys J55 requires zero mechanical calibrations and features a “ready-to-print” mode, so you can make ideas a reality without interruption.
Productivity at your elbow. Office, classroom, or studio environment – the J55 office solution is engineered to fit seamlessly into a professional space, with minimum distractions and maximum output.
The J55 features the best in-class footprint to printing tray ratio on the market, which means less bulk in your office and a better yield.
Plus, with full-color and texture realism, the J55 can produce more than 500,000 distinguishable color combinations, print five resins simultaneously, and provide multi-material capabilities that bring even the most imaginative ideas to life. With the J55, you can make more accurate design decisions earlier in the process.

With its round build platform, the J55 has a printing area of 1,174 cm2. In terms of standard prints, you could fit two large models that are 140 mm x 200 mm x 190 mm on the build tray. You can print models that are longer than that; however, part positioning should be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Like with all Stratasys PolyJet printers, once you load the file into GrabCAD Print, you’ll be given a print time estimate.
One of the unique things about the J55, is that if you’re printing a series of parts that are lined up over the same printhead pass, no additional time is added to the print.
For example, our team printed out Purple Platypus name plates, the print time was set to one hour and seven minutes. When we added in two name plates, the time stayed the same. When we added in three name plates, the time stayed the same. This function means that the J55 offers an incredible time savings.
To learn more on how part placement impacts print time on the J55, contact our team. The only true way to determine print time on the J55 is to load the file into GrabCAD Print.
The following materials are available on the J55: VeroCyan, VeroMagenta, VeroYellow, VeroPureWhite, VeroBlackPlus, VeroClear, and DraftGrey. The new VeroUltraClear is not currently available on the J55.
The J55 can print in five materials simultaneously.
Yes, just like other PolyJet printed parts, you can finish and polish parts after printing them on the J55.
The resolution of the J55 is 18.75 µm or 0.007 in. It also has a 300 x 300 DPI on the x-y axis.
Both the J826 and J55 are Pantone Validated, full-color, PolyJet machines from Stratasys. The machines will help you streamline your design and prototyping process. While they both have an incredible competitive advantage, there are a few key differences between the machines; namely, build capacity and material capabilities.
The J826 has all of the characteristics of the J850, on a build platform that is about half the size. In theory, you could have two J826’s, for about the same investment as a J850, and, due to the schematics of the print process, gain about twice the amount of output.
When compared to the J55, the J826 has a significantly larger build platform and more material capabilities. Its large, seven-material capacity allows you to load your most-used resins and avoid the downtime associated with material changeover. Unlike the J55, the J826 allows you to print in flexible, rubber-like materials. If your prototype requires flexible materials, then the J826 is the right option for you.
With a revolutionary circular build platform, the J55 features the best in-class footprint to printing tray ratio on the market, which means less bulk in your office and a better yield. The compact machine was designed with an office, classroom, or studio environment in mind. The machine will fit seamlessly into your space, with minimum distractions and maximum output.
While the J55 cannot print rubber-like material, it can texturally represent many different designs.
