    Surprising Ways an Architecture Department can Use 3D Printing

    January 14, 2020

    3D printing is becoming the norm in terms of prototyping for the manufacturing industry. The ability to create functional designs and even manufacture parts in a fraction of the time it would take by using traditional methods is astounding. It isn’t just the manufacturing sector that is reaping these rewards.

    The education sectors are also seeing the benefits. These benefits spread across many different departments, but in this blog article, we look at how architecture departments in different schools are benefiting from 3D printing.

    Learning About Part Priority by 3D Printing Jawbreakers

    December 23, 2019

    In October, we 3D printed some cool-looking lollipops on our Stratasys J-series PolyJet 3D printer to showcase the life-like quality that can be achieved with Vero and Agilus30 materials. Keeping up with the candy theme for the holidays, I thought it would be fun to create an incredibly life-like jawbreaker on the J750, which also provides an exciting opportunity to go over the Part Priority feature in GrabCAD Print. This feature helps novice modelers and users of CAD software that don’t make great watertight models create amazing 3D printed parts, exactly how they want them to be without needing to go back and fix their models.

    How 3D Printing is Transforming Dentistry

    December 16, 2019

    3D printing has revolutionized many industries, and the field of dentistry is no different. Due to the numerous benefits of 3D printing, dentists are finding various ways to implement it into their practices. One of the most significant advantages that 3D printers offer for is the production of multi-material elements. Dental 3D printers can simultaneously print a range of cases from implant models with soft tissue and custom-fit surgical guides, aligner setups and indirect bonding trays, a variety of restoration mock-ups and more.

    3D Printing in PANTONE [UPDATED]

    November 5, 2019

    In April of 2019, Stratasys announced that their J735 and J750 PolyJet machines successfully passed the rigorous requirements needed to make it the world’s first and only PANTONE-validated 3D printers. This was a huge hit and manufacturers around the world were rejoicing. In October of the same year Stratasys added two other members to its J-series of printers, the J835 and J850, which are also PANTONE-validated and include even more material options. This changes the game for 3D printing as design and prototype colors can now be matched with 100% specificity, making the process from concept to final product even more accurate.
