PolyJet Materials: A Range of Possibilities

June 5, 2018

Materials are the building blocks of every model, literally. While your design is being printed, each layer stacks upon each other, building it up, until your print is complete. Stratasys has more color options and unmatched product realism than any other 3D printer on the market today. Keep readying to discover the different material properties that can match your company's needs.

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.

With Multiple 3D Printer Operators, Who Is Responsible For Communicating Maintenance Needs?

March 19, 2018

Optimal communication can still be obtained even when there are multiple operators using a 3D printer. One main point of contact should be designated for the printer. This contact should be well-trained and have good communication skills as they will be responsible for explaining the status of their printer, based on the information provided by the operators.

3D Injection Molding Streamlined

June 15, 2017

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.

How to Perform a Weight Test for a Stratasys Objet 3D Printer

May 18, 2017

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.
