Carbon fiber has become a very popular item in the Additive Manufacturing world. There are a slew of companies offering various carbon fiber solutions. Stratasys also has their own Nylon12 based carbon fiber material on their Fortus line of 3D printers, but this is a new solution for their F123 series of 3D printers. ABS Carbon Fiber Filled material is set to be released for the F170, F270, and F370 in April, so let's take a closer look at ABS-CF10.

As the industry leader in 3D printing, Stratasys is always innovating to meet the current and future demands of the additive manufacturing industry. Sometimes this can lead to so many new product announcements in such a short time that it can be hard to keep track of all the changes, even when those changes are for the better. In this article, we are going to quickly summarize the most recent Stratasys updates, specifically with regards to their growing capabilities with PolyJet technology.
The new Stratasys J850 Pro PolyJet 3D printer is the latest machine variation in their popular and expanding J-series. What makes this entry unique is that it has been designed specifically to verify concepts quickly and cheaply through its efficient workflow with a wide range of materials (which the series is known for) but not to print realistic color. For a range of certain engineering-specific modeling applications, the resulting lower price-point and absence of "nice-to-have" color options, makes the J850 Pro a very attractive option for those looking to achieve faster product verification, increase their throughput and save valuable time.

When it comes to additive manufacturing there are many different types of technology that can be used. On the spectrum of 3D printing, voxel printing technology is probably as far away from filament strands and vats of goo as you can get. Voxel printing allows users to actually program the product material and its viscosity on a microscopic level. This results in both incredible control over color for visually stunning results and incredible control over material properties allowing for new and exciting composite materials. In this blog, we'll look at what Voxel printing is and how it is currently helping engineers who are embracing this technology.

It is a scientifically proven fact that playing with toys can improve your mood, so this holiday season I decided to play with the 3D printing “toys” I am lucky enough to have access to here at TriMech! A few years ago I was able to create some incredible Snowman Holiday Snow Globe Ornaments in full color plus clear (and they still adorn our Christmas Tree’s and desks at TriMech this time of year). Since then, Stratasys has added an incredible new machine to its lineup, as well as a wonderful new material, so I felt that this would be a great time to revisit that design and see what these advancements are capable of.

When we talk about 3D printing, we often highlight its benefits in traditional manufacturing for prototypes, jigs, fixtures, end of arm tooling, etc. While these are all great applications to point out, additive processes have benefits in every industry. In this article, we focus on the medical industry and showcase a few areas where additive has helped reshape the field and continues to provide a lasting impact.

Stratasys recently announced an integration between GrabCAD Print from Stratasys and KeyShot 3D rendering software from Luxion Inc. This seamless integration accelerates the CMF modeling process with a smooth and quick export of 3MF files. In this article, we will introduce you to KeyShot and the benefits you can expect to see from this partnership.

Having spent a great deal of my time over the last decade working in various design, CAD, CAM and additive manufacturing software tools, I am always grateful for features that save time and improve the ability to get to my desired outcome. With the year coming to an end, there is no better time than now to reflect and present the top 10 features I am thankful for in GrabCAD Print.

The Objet30 series of 3D printers is known for providing the power of PolyJet technology in a desktop-sized system. This makes them ideal for any office or studio space that needs to provide detailed prototypes while keeping their workforce and intellectual property in-house. Stratasys recently announced multiple updates to the Objet30 3D printer series with exciting new materials options, faster workflow and a fresh look in their latest generation: the Objet30 V5.

This time last year, we were creating some amazing multi-color and multi-material lollipops using the incredible Stratasys J850. This year, I thought that it would be fun to try something a bit different and see if we could put our industrial design skills to the test and make some fun, slightly spooky, moderately goofy Halloween ghost pendants using the brand new Stratasys J55 PolyJet 3D printer! In doing so, we’ll learn about a fascinating process using an advanced image editing software which can be applied to all sorts of projects.
