The new Stratasys J35 Pro PolyJet 3D printer was introduced to the world earlier this year, and it is quickly becoming one of the most talked about professional-grade, multi-material 3D printers today. One hot topic of discussion surrounds material options, specifically what materials the system can run and how can they be mixed and matched to provide different results. This article will attempt to bring the J35 Pro material configurations into clearer focus.
The J35 Pro combines the innovative, rotational PolyJet technology pioneered on the Stratasys J55 Prime. This, along with an even more compact footprint, makes the J35 the most versatile and office-friendly, professional 3D printer on the market.
The J35 Pro is capable of simultaneously printing up to three different photopolymer resin model materials as well as an easily removable gel support matrix.
The J35 Pro has 2 model material bays, a bay that can be loaded with either model or support , and then a dedicated support bay. In the center is the waste container.
The materials for the J35 come in 1.1kg cartridges in the following formulations:
The J35 Pro allows users to load a number of different material combinations to achieve a range of various model types. From fast-draft single-material prototypes to high-resolution, fit, form, and functional testing models with transparency, textures, and labels included, the J35 Pro can create them all.
Below are several material loading schemes and the types of models that they can produce:
The new J35 Pro PolyJet 3D printer provides a tremendous amount of utility throughout the entire product design process. From inexpensive fast-draft concept validation models to highly detailed fit and function models, all the way to a final greyscale CMF model, the J35 Pro can deliver prototypes that will help you to get your products to market faster and at a lower cost than ever before.
