Design Guidelines: PolyJet
Our basic guidelines for PolyJet include important design considerations to help improve part manufacturability, enhance cosmetic appearance, and reduce overall production time.
|NORMAL RESOLUTION||490mm x 390mm x 200mm (Stratasys OBJET 500 Connex 3)|
|NORMAL RESOLUTION||297mm x 210mm x 200mm (Keyence AGILISTA 3200W)|
|NORMAL RESOLUTION||30 microns|
Minimum Feature Size
For well-designed parts, tolerances of ±0.1mm plus ±0.001mm/mm can typically be achieved. Note that tolerances may change depending on part geometry.
Minimum free-standing wall or feature is 0.80mm. Holes, channels, and slots less than 0.80mm in diameter/width will not form; maximum length-to-width aspect ratio is 4:1.
PolyJet provides the ability to choose a desired hardness or combine material properties into a single build, which makes it ideal for prototyping overmolding parts. Shore A hardnesses of 30A, 40A, 50A, 60A, 70A, 85A, 95A, and rigid are available in these colors:
- Digital Clear/Translucent
- Digital Black
- Digital White
- Digital OverMould
- 3DP Silicone (60-65%) printing currently offers a single transparent material in Shore 65A and 35A hardness.
We use multiple additive machines that offer large build sizes, accurate parts, and quick production times. Our PolyJet equipment consists of Stratasys OBJET 500 Connex 3 and Keyence AGILISTA 3200W machines.
