What is Polyjet 3D printing technology?

PolyJet 3D Printing is an industrial manufacturing technique. It works similarly to inkjet printing, but instead of jetting drops of ink onto paper, PolyJet 3D Printers jet layers of curable liquid photopolymer onto a build tray.

During the pre-processing, the software automatically calculates the placement of photopolymers and support material from a 3D CAD file, during the printing, the resin 3D printer jets and instantly UV-cures tiny droplets of liquid photopolymer.

Delicate layers accumulate on the build tray to create several highly-detailed 3D printed products. Where overhangs or complex shapes require support, the Polyjet 3D printer jets a removable support material named FullCore 750. The process of fine layer polymerization is repeated until the object is finished.

After the photopolymerization is completed, the batch is placed under a pressurized water jet. Any excess liquid or supports can be removed with a few human interactions.

The final product has a naturally smooth surface which can be polished further to create near full transparency for the transparent resin. 3D printed models and parts are ready to handle and use immediately after cleaning. There is no need for post-curing.

Why choose Polyjet 3D printing technology?

The Polyjet 3D printing process is highly beneficial for those who need to produce accurate parts for prototyping or low-volume production. Due to the limitations of traditional manufacturing processes, it also allows the creation of complicated and highly detailed designs that are impossible with any other technology.

Smooth surfaces

Models are precisely printed in layers as fine as 25 or 16 microns for smooth surfaces and complex geometries.

Material properties

Material properties range from rubber to rigid, transparent to opaque, neutral to vibrantly colored, and standard to biocompatible.

Detailed designs

Go further with your project by using Polyjet 3D printing technology. Complex and detailed designs are now easy to create.

Which applications are best suited to Polyjet 3D Printing?

PolyJet is used by automotive, electronics, consumer goods, medical development, and clothing manufacturers. You can, for instance, create ABS-like prototypes, ergonomic tooling, biocompatible surgical guides, or realistic prototypes that closely resemble finished products.

All Polyjet 3D printing materials are photopolymers, a class different from thermoplastics or elastomers used commonly in many industries, but they can simulate those materials visually, thermally, and mechanically. Polyjet photopolymers are all REACH-compliant and environmentally safe. 

What are the advantages of Polyjet?

Just like other resin 3D printing techniques, such as Stereolithography, Polyjet can print objects with precise features. Using Polyjet 3D printing offers the possibility to create complex shapes with a great precision, impossible to make using traditional manufacturing techniques. Moreover, using a 3D printing material such as VeroClear gives you access to great properties not available with our other 3D printing materials: its pretty rare to have a transparent material! Indeed, VeroClear is originally translucent, but with some polishing, it is possible to make it more transparent. The final product has a naturally smooth surface which can be polished further to create near full transparency!

A Polyjet 3D printing service like Sculpteo will allow you to order your parts in just a few clicks and leave your project in the hands of experimented 3D printing experts.
