Professional systems in all shapes and sizes
It’s one thing to have an idea in your head — it’s something else to hold it in your hands, or place it on your co-worker’s desk and proclaim “I knew this would work.” 3D printers let you think faster. Move quickly. Cut costs.
From individual designer through product development collaboration to the manufacturing department, Stratasys offers FDM and PolyJet 3D printers designed for you.
Stratasys FDM Technology works with production-grade thermoplastics to build strong, durable and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology. 3D printers that run on FDM Technology build parts layer-by-layer from the bottom up by heating and extruding thermoplastic filament.
PolyJet is a powerful 3D printing technology that produces smooth, accurate parts, prototypes and tooling. With microscopic layer resolution and accuracy down to 0.1 mm, it can produce thin walls and complex geometries using the widest range of materials available with any technology. PolyJet 3D printing 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.
MakerBot is leading the next industrial revolution in desktop 3D printing for professional, educational, and home use. See how people everywhere are using MakerBot Replicator 3D Printers to imagine and create amazing things.
3D Printer Material:
FDM Technology builds parts in the same strong, stable plastics used in injection molding, CNC machining and other traditional manufacturing processes. Harness the power of 3D printing while relying on tested, established thermoplastics.
PolyJet technology 3D prints in the widest variety of materials, so you can create ergonomic tooling, biocompatible surgical guides or realistic prototypes that closely resemble finished products. Models are precisely printed in layers as fine as 16 microns for smooth surfaces and complex geometries. Material properties range from rubber to rigid, transparent to opaque, neutral to vibrantly colored and standard to biocompatible.
ABS Models and DDM parts created with Stratasys 3D Printing FDM technology require post-processing to remove the WaterWorks system support material. At any price point, CleanStation support removal systems are cleaner, quieter, faster, more controllable and more repeatable.
