3D print in hundreds of composite materials
Construct hundreds of Digital Materials with a wide range of physical properties, colors and tones. Dual material jetting produces up to 14 material properties in one print job while our most advanced PolyJet system jets three materials to multiply your options.
Digital Materials empower you to bring your designs to life and create accurate prototypes faster than ever before.
3D Printing With Digital Materials
Select PolyJet 3D Printers let you fabricate Digital Materials — composite materials with predetermined visual and mechanical properties. Digital Materials are made right in the 3D printer, when two or three PolyJet base resins are combined in specific concentrations and structures to provide the desired properties.
Each Digital Material is based on one of several hundred proven combinations of our PolyJet base resins. A single prototype 3D printed on our advanced Connex3 systems can contain as many as 82 distinct material properties, all created in one build. You can simulate products made of elastomers and rubber by creating Digital Materials with a full Shore scale A range including: Shore 27, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, 70, 85 and 95. With Digital Materials, you can also simulate standard plastics such as production-grade ABS.
Easy support removal
Increase productivity and gain even more design freedom with the ability to easily remove support material from delicate features and small cavities. Soluble support material (SUP706) empowers hands-free removal, plus improved manual or WaterJet removal. It is compatible with all PolyJet materials (except hearing aid and dental materials) and works on all Connex3 systems.
