If you have not heard about the term 3DIM or 3D injection molds, it has been around for several years. Originally, this started with prototype injection molds out of aluminum and served the purpose of pre-phase or beta versions and functional testing for the R&D process. While this process was faster than using traditional P21 tooling, it still required a large investment of time and money to get a simple tool. Thanks to 3DIM and Stratasys PolyJet 3D printers, we now have a more streamlined process.

Have you been noticing the print quality on your Stratasys Objet 3D printer diminishing? Are parts starting to look like they are melting or sinking? While this can be caused by a variety of complications, one of the most common solutions is a simple weight test calibration. In this blog, we explain the purpose of a weight test, signs your machine needs to be calibrated and how to perform a weight test for Stratasys Objet 3D printers.

If you’re a PolyJet user, there is a good chance you’ve experienced under-cured or over-cured parts at least once—especially if the UV Calibration Wizard hasn’t been run in a while. In this blog, I’ll explain the effects of a poor UV calibration (low and high) and how to avoid running into these problems.

Every company aims to print parts that have the look and feel of a finished product. However, if you’re more than a hobbyist it is important to understand the different types of precision 3D printing technologies available. This blog discusses the differences between Stereolithography Apparatus (SLA) from 3D Systems and Triple Jetting Technology (PolyJet) from Stratasys. Understanding the differences between how SLA vs. PolyJet impact your application will help determine your current and future needs from a 3D printer.
We’re welcoming the new, state-of-the-art J750 to the Stratasys 3D printer family! Developed to meet the long-term growth opportunities in prototyping applications, this is the world’s only full-color, multi-material, high-resolution 3D printer.
