Additive manufacturing process that jets a photopolymer onto a build platform, then cures it with a UV lamp.
The material jetting process builds 3D models with a movable print head that jets photopolymer onto a build platform. UV light passes over the jetted photopolymer which cures the material, solidifying each layer as it builds. This process is repeated layer by layer until the model is complete. Materials of different colors and/or durometers can be deposited in the same part if desired to simulate overmolded parts.
With a maximum build envelope of 11.57” x 7.55” x 5.85” our machine offers plenty of space for your polyjet parts. Wax-like structures are built to support the model during printing, easily removed post-process. High resolution layer thickness will vary between 0.0011' – 0.0006”, dependent on material selection.
The polyjet process offers a diverse range of materials to complement its wide-variety of uses. Each material offers distinct advantages best suited for rubber-like, clear, or high detail projects. To see the Objet materials we currently offer, click the link below.
Parts are produced with a resolution of less than 0.002" and an accuracy of +/- .004 for the first inch and +/-.0015 for each additional inch. Part geometry, wall thickness, and build orientation can have an effect on tolerances. Please let us know if you have critical dimensions that need to be met.
