A RELIABLE MACHINE FOR REPEATABLE QUALITY
The Fortus 450mc specializes in production parts with high-performance thermoplastics for industries such as medical, aerospace, and defense. The machine comes with all of the capabilities of the Fortus 380mc, plus a larger build tray, more material options, and more material bays for longer uninterrupted builds. A choice of four different layer thicknesses allows users to strike the desired balance between strength, detail, and speed.

Optimize STL output for 3D printing on a Fortus machine using Insight Software that automates slicing, support structure generation, and material extrusion path creation. Users have the ability to manually determine the material, look, durability, and precise sizing of parts. Users can also control the build speed of the FDM process.
- Control build orientation to achieve greatest part strength with the smoothest surface finish
- Customize support structures for quick and easy removal and optimal material usage
- Option to pause during build cycle so user can embed hardware, circuitry, etc.
- Advanced control over part properties with manipulation of tool paths
Control Center, a sophisticated software application that communicates with user workstations and Fortus systems, is included with the Insight Software. The program makes it possible for users to manage jobs and monitor build status updates. Designers, engineers, and manufacturer professionals can network with each other as well — shared 3D manufacturing capacity will maximize efficiency and throughput.
