Functional prototyping is immensely beneficial to overall production cycles. The freedom to build and test prototypes in-house opens up new doors to build on functional and design creativity.
Breathe easier knowing you have the time, budget and space to test and refine your product before committing to final production. Allow for changes and improvements without the stress of sending your design off-site. Get your product to market in a fraction of the time and cost. Do you already feel calmer just thinking about it?
Detail and Flexibility
Stratasys 3D printers use PolyJet Technology to create amazingly realistic prototypes with the look and feel of the finished product.
PolyJet Technology is capable of producing clear components, soft-touch parts, living hinges, and shock absorption. Enjoy the ability to print multiple materials in one automated build. Achieve complex shapes, intricate details, and delicate features.
PolyJet also incorporates the widest variety of colors and materials into a single model for unbeatable efficiency.
Strength and Durability
Another option is Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology for functional prototypes in production-grade thermoplastics for prototypes that withstand thermal, chemical, and mechanical stress.
FDM printers offer unparalleled versatility in durable parts. They are tough, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.
Amazingly Realistic Prototypes
Test the look and feel of your next finished product, including soft-touch parts, clear components, living hinges, and shock absorption, by putting Stratasys PolyJet technology to work. With the capability to print multiple materials in one automated build, and rubber-like materials in a range of Shore values, you can test with unsurpassed realism and experiment with greater freedom.
