Stratasys Vero PolyJet materials are photopolymers known and used for 3D printing parts that require smoothness and accuracy, and for their strength, stiffness and versatility. These materials are commonly used to 3D print prototypes that are as close as they can be to the final product. Although they belong to the same family, not all of the Vero materials and types can be combined with each other. In this article we will quickly explore the complete Vero line of materials to better understand all the differences.

Magic is in the air this holiday season at TriMech with all of the new toys we’ve been getting here in our print lab lately. Since we’ve been given the gift of an incredible new Stratasys J750, I decided that it would be great to get into the holiday spirit and create a miniature winter scene to share with some of my clients and co-workers that don’t get to experience all of the charm and joy that snow brings this time of year.
3D printing in color has been around longer than you think. Do you need a prototype printed in yellow ABS? No problem, load a yellow spool of filament in your 3D printer and voilà! You have yourself a yellow part. How about blue? We have you covered, just toss some blue photopolymer in your SLA vat and BAM! A blue part can be printed. How about a part with multiple colors? No problem. Break out the trusty sandpaper and good old-fashion elbow grease, maybe some primer, then either spray or hand paint your model until your heart is content.
Oh… you were hoping to have full color printed parts straight off the printer? Why didn’t you say so? Let me introduce you to Stratasys PolyJet technology.

Stratasys has released new 3D printing materials that bring even more power to your creativity. These new PolyJet materials allow you to prototype in such a way that others will ask "Is this the final product?". New materials include Agilus30™ White, VeroFlexVivid™ and VeroCyanV™. It is no surprise that the J735 and J750 continues to evolve with every update.

Today, quadcopters, more commonly referred to as "Drones," have evolved into many different categories. From Scenic Quads that are GPS controlled, used to capture amazing scenery and widely used for movie/video photography to a $5 toy for an indoor flying session, drones have become instinctively popular. Now with the advancement in 3D printing materials such as thermoplastics in the Stratasys FDM family, for years we have been replacing traditional manufacturing tools and end-use parts.
