PolyJet Technology

PRODUCE AMAZING 3D PRINTED PARTS ON THE FLY

PolyJet Banner


Achieve smooth surfaces, thin walls, and complex geometries when using our 3D printers, driven by our PolyJet technology which features 16-micron layers with accuracy as high as 0.1 mm — the one and only technology that supports a wide selection of materials with properties that range from rubber to rigid and transparent to opaque. Plus, Objet Connex technology allows users to print multiple materials at the same time in a single build.

The History

Highly regarded for its innovative, multidisciplinary approach to hardware, software, and polymer materials, Objet Geometries paved the way for 3D printing as the first company to successfully jet photopolymer material. Always focused on continuous improvement of its specialized PolyJet technology, Objet continues to offer industry leading 3D printer features and capabilities. Announced in December of 2012, Objet Ltd. and Stratasys Ltd. merged to form a 3D printing powerhouse of additive manufacturing.

How it Works

Similar to the inkjet document printing process of distributing ink on paper, PolyJet 3D printers jet layers of liquid photopolymer on a build tray that cures under UV light with each pass. As the layers build up one at a time, the 3D model or prototype comes to life. Models that have completely cured can be handled and used almost immediately as post-curing is not required. Along with the selected model materials, the 3D printer also prints layers of a gel-like support material specially designed to uphold cavities and complex geometries (support material can be easily removed by hand with compressed water).

Benefits

Prototypes are created with precision, setting the standard for finished-product realism as the technology makes it possible for users to create parts with extremely thin print layers, complex shapes, high resolution, fine details, and smooth finished surfaces. Plus, users have the option of printing multiple material properties in a single build cycle. With more material versatility than any other technology on the market, Objet Connex 3D Printers rank as a top choice among designers, engineers, and manufacturers alike.
