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.

Size

Maximum Dimensions

NORMAL RESOLUTION 490mm x 390mm x 200mm (Stratasys OBJET 500 Connex 3)
NORMAL RESOLUTION 297mm x 210mm x 200mm (Keyence AGILISTA 3200W)

Accuracy

Layer Thickness

NORMAL RESOLUTION 30 microns

Minimum Feature Size

NORMAL RESOLUTION 0.3mm

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 0.76mm. Holes, channels, and slots less than 0.76mm in diameter/width will not form; maximum length-to-width aspect ratio is 4:1.


Materials

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 printing currently offers a single transparent material in Shore 65A and 35A hardness.
