One of the most significant advantages of the Stratasys H350 SAF 3D printer is the ability to consider packing a build in 3D space. Since SAF uses a powderbed process, parts are “supportless”, being suspended in the Nylon powder. As a result, hundreds of parts can be tightly packed into a build, limited only by part geometry and nesting strategy. High throughput is the name of the game and this machine is meant for production.
