The 450mc has high capacity options that allow for up to two weeks of unattended 3D print build time. It also supports a wide variety of materials including many industrial grade thermoplastics used in manufacturing. The ST-130 material option withstands high temperatures during the print process, but is easily dissolved from hollow interiors after the fact to support sacrificial tooling.

The Fortus 450mc 3D printer is compatible with the most common current versions of the Microsoft Windows operating systems, and it comes with Stratasys’ Insight software that automates most aspects of the 3D print process while supporting customization when needed on a project by project basis.

The Fortus 450mc delivers the speed, efficiency, and quality needed to quickly generate ROI on your investment in 3D printing.
