Introducing the New Stratasys J826 3D Printer

By TriMech on February 17, 2020

Stratasys just released the newest addition to their J-series family of PolyJet 3D printers, the Stratasys J826, an entry-level printer for the enterprise design world. Just like the J850, the J826 has been created using Stratasys' best-in-class PolyJet technology and is part of the only family of printers currently available that can print full-color, multi-material models in a single print. It provides the same end-to-end solution for the design process and ultra-realistic simulation at a lower price point.

Without the need to manually replace materials, the J826 can combine rigid to flexible materials, add texture, parting lines or heatmaps and print opaque, transparent and full-color models. In comparison to previous PolyJet 3D printers such as the Objet Eden 260 or the Objet 260 Connex 3, the seven-material capability of the J826 allows it to produce a more detailed prototype or functional part in one single print without the need for post-processing. With advanced color, material and finish (CMF) 3D printing, this machine allows designers to present a full design intent and show how a product will look and feel.

Additionally, the J826 has three different print modes, including the High-Speed Mode, which helps speed up the printing process, reducing production time. Unique to the J826 is the new DraftGrey concept material, which lets designers create prototypes for testing at a lower cost than before. The J826 comes in a smaller dimension and a lower cost that other members of the J-series family to better suit your budget along with your design needs.

What's New, You Ask?

Aside from offering a more flexible price range and condensed build size, the J826 delivers improved capabilities, including:

icon workflow  

Accelerated Workflow: Smooth workflow from the user’s preferred CAD program. Includes a removable tray for easy cleaning and automated support creation and removal.

 

 

 

icon speed  

Make Faster Design Decisions: Print digital materials using High Speed Mode up to 3 base resins, 27-micron resolution. The large material capacity and seven-material channel reduces downtime and provides the same reliability of other printers in the J-series.

icon quality  

Power Designs with Color and Multiple Materials: Combine full-color, rubber-like flexibility and transparency in a single print to produce the most realistic protoypes possible.

icon accuracy  

Accuracy: Typical deviation from STL dimensions, for models printed with rigid materials, based on size: under 100 mm – ±100μ; above100 mm – ±200μ.


The J-Series Line-Up

The J826 was created using the same technology as the J850, however, there are some differences, including print modes and build size that make these products different.
