The Polyjet 3D printing process requires jetting multiple layers of a curable liquid polymer directly onto a build tray.
The 3D build preparation software automatically performs the calculations that deliver correct placement of the polymers and support materials from your 3D CAD file.
The printer will jet and instantly UV-cures tiny droplets of liquid polymer. This means that very fine layers are accumulating on the build tray creating one or several extremely precise 3D parts or models.
Sometimes overhangs and complex shapes will mandate more support material. This will clean internal voids and other finer details that can be missed, or damaged by water-jetting. This approach delivers easily removed material simply by applying water by hand, or by using a solution-bath. This delivers instant handling and use capacity immediately with no curing required.
Extraordinary detail, precision and surface smoothness are easily accomplished. Other benefits of this 3D printing technology include:
- The creation of detailed, smoothly produced 3D printed parts that deliver final-product aesthetics
- The achievement of extremely complex shapes, intricate details and delicate features of parts
- Production of accurate molds, fixtures, jigs and other manufacturing tools
3D Printing Materials for Polyet Printing
All of these materials are capable of creating realistic, precise prototypes and tools that are extremely tough and heat resistant. These materials are used to simulate the standard ABS plastics. This is perfect for creating functional prototypes including but not limited to manufacturing tools, casings, snap-fit parts for high or low temperature use, mobile phone casings, electrical parts, engine parts and covers - and are completely appropriate for all simulated parts requiring shock absorption and high-impact resistance.
