As 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 gears up this week in Nashville, TN, running from February 9-12, users and technology partners have opportunities to advance 3D technology skills, catch up on the latest 3D printing news and innovations—and connect with industry leaders like Stratasys. This year, the 3D printer manufacturer and creator of major production systems is unveiling a new comparatively inexpensive Polyjet printer meant to offer shorter product design cycles, allowing users to work in full color more quickly than ever before.
The J826 3D Printer is significantly less expensive, with Stratasys reporting that it will cost half as much as their other J8-series PolyJet printers and that its key features are “part realism and productivity” and “exceptional print quality.”
This new hardware, made for designers first and foremost, also offers:
- Full PANTONE-Validated color
- Seven-material 3D printing capacity
- Maximum build volume size of 10” x 9.9” x 7.9” (255mm x 252mm x 200 mm)
- Multiple print modes for adjusting quality modes and speed modes too
Enterprise groups with mid-volume modeling requirements especially can look forward to saving huge amounts of time in production; in fact, the Stratasys team expects that designers will be able to save weeks in terms of design cycles and fabrication of extremely accurate prototypes for applications in automotive, education, consumer goods, and electronics.
“Our flagship product architecture will be 100% 3D printed using the J826, so it’s no exaggeration to say that it—and indeed our company—is completely and only enabled by this 3D printer,” said Nick Rollings, co-founder of Cambridge, UK-based BiologIC Technologies. “For us, the design freedoms delivered by full-color, multi-material 3D printing enables us to accelerate our design process with zero restrictions. This empowers us to create ultra-realistic parts for our prototype using materials that, thanks to their advanced properties, will enable us to fully 3D print our medical instrument and effectively personalize medicine once our product is finalized.”
“On top of that, the fundamental cost and time savings achievable with the J826 make it possible to actually get our ideas off the ground and rapidly progress—there isn’t another technology available today that can tick all these boxes,” said Rollings.
Designers can look forward to full design process that means ‘same day send-to-print’ and simplified post-processing activity. The J826 works with the same PolyJet materials as the J850, and is compatible with VeroUltraClear, and PANTONE Validated colors. The system is also supported by GrabCAD Print software.
“We believe that exceptional resolution, full color, multiple materials, and high productivity should not be the province of the few,” said Shamir Shoham, Vice President, PolyJet Business Unit at Stratasys. “That’s why we extended the power of our world-class J8-series 3D printers to the new J826 – addressing the needs of mid-volume enterprise shops and educational institutions at a lower price.”
