SLA vs. PolyJet [Technology Review]

August 14, 2018

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.

FDM or PolyJet: Which One Is Better For Consumer Goods

July 31, 2018

In most cases, when working with prototypes for consumer goods, product development engineers want a print that will most closely represent the final production part. The ability to print new iterations on the fly, as multiple changes typically take place, is crucial. This is where 3D printing comes in handy. Keep reading to learn the advantages of both PolyJet and FDM technologies when it comes to consumer goods.

PolyJet & FDM Working Together to Save Time and Money

May 22, 2018

For over a decade, companies have tried to pin FDM technology against PolyJet technology. Whether it be the fine detail of PolyJet capabilities outweighing the lack of support needed for FDM, or that the strength of materials available in FDM is worth the additional time of printing over the PolyJet, an argument can usually be made to justify one over the other. Although some industries may always lean one way more than the other, I am here to discuss the benefits of having both technologies under the same roof.
