Material Jetting (MJ)
An ultraviolet-sensitive gel is deposited by a print head then immediately cured by a UV lamp.
Material jetting is a solution for designers who want excellent visual models with an end-product feel. This technology also allows for multiple materials to be incorporated into one print. It is good for complex, flexible models.

Material Jetting Materials
The Vero Family is a photopolymer offering multi-color applications, strength, and stiffness. Photopolymers may be blended with other photopolymers to vary flexibility, translucency, and heat resistance.

Material Jetting Finishing Levels
Standard finish, supported surfaces appearing matte and non-supported surfaces appearing glossy. Parts will have slight layer lines.
Part built using matte build settings and supports removed
Standard finish, parts built surrounded in support. All surfaces appear matte. Parts will have slight layer lines.
Supports removed and cosmetic surfaces sanded to 320 grit
Show quality finish, removes layer lines. Parts are prime and paint ready.
Supports removed and cosmetic surfaces wet sanded to 600 grit
High gloss finish, recommended only for plating and optically clear parts (note that clear-coat and light bleaching is necessary for optimal clarity).
* Elastomeric materials can only be finished to Level 1 and Level 2. For a higher quality finish, these materials may be coated in soft touch.
