MULTIPLE MATERIALS IN 3D PRINTED PARTS
Vibrant color options and one of the fastest of our technologies, the PolyJET process is an ideal choice for attractive, high precision models needed quickly. PolyJET 3D printing rapidly produces parts with astonishingly fine detail, smooth surfaces, and precision. The technology works with a vast array of materials, including rigid opaque in hundreds of vibrant colors, clear and tinted translucent shades, rubber-like flexible materials, and specialized photopolymers for 3D printing in the dental, medical and consumer product industries.
Similar to an inkjet printer, this process jets layers of liquid photopolymer that is instantly cured with UV lights attached to the print heads. This speedy process creates fine layers for high resolution parts (up to 16 microns) that are produced quickly, sometimes in the same day. PolyJET is also popular for its ability to print multiple materials, durometers, and colors in one print - as well as living hinges, overhangs, and complicated geometries without needing to be assembled.
When higher quantities are needed, PolyJET parts can be used as master patterns for our ProCAST RTV Urethane Casting process.

|Standard Lead Time||1-3 days|
|Standard Accuracy||+/- .005” first inch and +/- .001” for every inch thereafter|
|Minimum Wall Thickness||High Quality: 16 Microns, Normal: 30 Microns (single material only), Digital Mode: 30 Microns (multiple materials)|
|Build Styles||PolyJet can be print in two distinct surface finishes; Glossy and Matte. Glossy: Builds without support on upwards facing surfaces. Any overhanging and downward facing surface(s) will have support underneath. Matte: Builds a layer of support surrounding the entire part.|
