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.

Key Characteristics

More Information

Agilus30 is a photopolymer with excellent flexibility and tear-resistance due to it’s rubber-like qualities.

  • Flexible

Tango Black is a flexible photopolymer that can simulate thermoplastic elastomers with flexible, rubber-like qualities.

  • Elastomeric
  • Flexible

Vero Clear is a transparent photopolymer that simulates acrylic and can be used as an alternate to glass.

  • Clear/ Translucent
  • High Resolution/High Detail
  • Rigid

Vero Family 

Vero Black+ and Vero White+

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

Level

Process

Description

1

Supports removed

Standard finish, supported surfaces appearing matte and non-supported surfaces appearing glossy. Parts will have slight layer lines.

2

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.

3*

Supports removed and cosmetic surfaces sanded to 320 grit

Show quality finish, removes layer lines. Parts are prime and paint ready.

4*

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.
