DEED 3D is the largest platinum partner of  ” Stratasys ”  in Asia, with more than 17 years of leading 3D printing technology and services.

From Prototyping to Production: PolyJet 3D Printing for Every Stage of Development.

Polyjet 3D printing is developed by the US-based Israeli company Stratasys. This technology, although akin to traditional inkjet printing, diverges significantly in its execution and outcomes. While inkjet printers deploy ink on paper, PolyJet systems release a stream of curable liquid photopolymer onto a build tray, solidifying each droplet instantly using UV light.

what polyjet can print?

PolyJet 3D printers are renowned for their exceptional precision, delivering smooth surfaces and intricate details with incredible accuracy. These cutting-edge systems can replicate a wide range of materials, from plastics and rubber to human tissue, by combining various photopolymers in precise concentrations and microstructures. With an extensive selection of materials available, you can create prototypes, models, textures, and patterns that are incredibly detailed and diverse in their properties and aesthetics. Plus, with thousands of material options to choose from, you can achieve a full spectrum of colors in your prints. Whether you’re looking for intricate details or vibrant colors, PolyJet 3D printing offers unparalleled versatility and customization.

How Does PolyJet Work?

PolyJet 3D printing technology operates by depositing layers of curable liquid photopolymer onto a build tray.

  • Pre-Processing: The preparation software automatically determines the arrangement of photopolymers to be cured and support material from a native STL/ STP/ OBJ/ VRML/ 3MF format file.
  • Production: Using UV light, PolyJet printers rapidly cure the droplets of liquid photopolymer, which accumulate in thin layers on the build tray to create the 3D part(s). Where support is required, the printer will jet removable support material.
  • Support Removal: The support material can be easily removed by hand, with water, or in a solution bath. No post-curing is necessary, as the 3D printed part is ready to handle straight off the build tray.

Unique Features and Advantages of PolyJet

PolyJet’s prowess lies in its unparalleled precision and vast range of possibilities. With layer resolutions down to 0.014 mm, it’s adept at creating intricate designs, from complex geometries and patterns to delicate features and textures. And while its full-color capabilities might steal the show, PolyJet’s application goes beyond mere aesthetics. Its durable components make it a favorite for rugged industrial parts and biocompatible products such as dental prostheses.

PolyJet offers a range of benefits, including:

  • Creation of smooth, highly-detailed prototypes that accurately convey final-product aesthetics.
  • Production of precise molds, jigs, fixtures and other manufacturing tools.
  • Ability to achieve complex shapes, intricate details and delicate features with ease.
  • Incorporation of a wide variety of colors and materials into a single model, allowing for unparalleled efficiency in the printing process.

Guidelines for Selecting Polyjet Materials

PolyJet 3D printers are designed to work exclusively with Stratasys PolyJet materials. While it may be tempting to use other photocurable resins with your PolyJet machine, doing so can result in damage to the printer or poor print quality. Fortunately, Stratasys offers a wide range of materials, including biocompatible options for dental applications and high-temperature materials for industrial use.
Compared to the cost of resins for other types of 3D printing, such as SLA, PolyJet resins may seem expensive, with an average price of approximately $400 per kilogram. However, the high quality, precision, and versatility of PolyJet printing make it a worthwhile investment for many businesses and individuals. Stratasys offers a variety of PolyJet materials to choose from, and you can find the full list on their material menu page.
