The future is 3D printed

- New 3D printer can handle thousands of colours
- Objects can be created using multiple materials
Stratasys Ltd, the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, has launched the industry’s first full-colour multi-material 3D printer, the J750 3D printer, in Singapore. The new printer allows customers for the first time to mix and match full colour gradients alongside a range of materials.
This makes the J750 ideal for product designers, engineers and manufacturers, as well as service bureaus. The printer allows customers to choose from more than 360,000 different colour shades plus multiple material properties ranging from rigid to flexible and opaque to transparent.
According to the company, designers and engineers can physically experience true product prototypes within hours of developing an initial concept.
The J750 is supported with the new PolyJet Studio software. The software’s intuitive user interface allows users to simply choose materials, optimise the build and manage print queues. Assignment of colours, transparencies and rigidity is eased via familiar design controls. Colour textures can be loaded fully intact via VRML files imported from CAD tools.
The Stratasys J750 also minimises downtime associated with material changeovers. Featuring a large, six-material capacity, it keeps the most used resins loaded and ready for printing.
