FDM Vs. PolyJet

PolyJet

Stratasys Polyjet systems are renowned for their incredibly detailed and unique printing properties. By combining photopolymer resins, PolyJet 3d printers can create over 500,000 different colors and control part durometer for unmatched realism and feel. Smooth surface finishes make this system the ideal for patterns and molds, and the wide variety of color and durometer controls create the most realistic detailed medical models in the 3D printing world!

FDM

The most widely used 3D printing system in the world; Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) provides unmatched reliability, repeatability, and material options. Ranging from inexpensive prototyping materials like ABS and ASA, up to engineering and high performance materials like Polycarbonate, Nylon Carbon Fiber, and ULTEM. FDM is the most versatile and commonly requested service at CADimensions.

3D Printing Materials By Industry

Concept Models

For large companies, concept modeling within departments is a way to bring ideas to life before presenting them to superiors. 3D printed concept models are valuable communication tools, conveying ideas to clients, marketers and colleagues in a way that a computer model couldn’t. With FDM machines, you can build durable concept-models with our office friendly printers that can put out small models in a number of hours, and larger models in a number of days. If you build concept models with FDM printers, you can sand, drill, or paint as desired. If you’re looking to put out something as realistic as possible, then a PolyJet machine is the one for you. It allows you to incorporate multiple materials to build models that look and feel like finished products.

Functional Prototypes

3D printing allows you virtually limitless potential to build prototypes quickly and inexpensively, giving you greater flexibility and allowing you to bring your product to market faster. If you want to make a high-performance prototype that will withstand thermal, mechanical, and chemical stress, then FDM technology is the way to go. This will allow you to perform custom tests that will take your performance data and confidence to a new level. If you want a more realistic finish to your prototype that will have the actual look and feel of your desired finish product, then Stratasys PolyJet machines will be your friend. This will allow you to use multiple materials on one model to have unsurpassed realism.

End of Arm Tooling

End of arm tool effectors can encompass a number of applications. By 3D printing them, tools are lighter and use less materials. This means you can pick a heavier payload, save money on each tool or version of the tool and be more flexible.

Jigs & Fixtures

When assembling products on a line, jigs and fixtures are tools that hold products in place or make accessing them easier for workers. 3D printing these parts cuts down on production time because you can create a one off custom jig for the exact specified use. Stratasys even prints their own fixtures when building the extrusion heads for new printers.

Composite Tooling

Fortus 450/Fortus 900. Why? Materials used: Ultem 1010: Ultem 1010 offers the highest heat resistance, chemical resistance and tensile strength of any FDM thermoplastic. The certified grade of this material is biocompatible and approved for food contact with NSF 51 and ISO 10993/USP Class VI certifications.

If you make anything with composites like carbon fiber or fiberglass you likely face challenges with multi-part molds that are difficult to design, manufacture and use. With 3D printing, you can still get these composite materials but print only the geometries you need and dissolve away support materials.

Sacrificial Tooling

Fortus 450/ Fortus 900. Why? Materials used: ST130 – Engineered and tested specifically for sacrificial tooling, ST-130 withstands the heat and pressure of autoclave curing, and it 3D prints with a permeable triangle fill pattern to cut build time, conserve material and dissolve quickly.

FDM sacrificial tooling can dramatically streamline the production process for complicated composite parts with hollow interiors. Stratasys FDM technology uses a proprietary dissolvable thermoplastic material which enables the production of complex composite parts without a bonded seam or any additional support tooling.

Sandcasting

You could use a number of machines, but for best results you should be using F370/Fortus 380/Fortus 450/Fortus 900, reason they vary is the size of the build platform.

3D printing can be used to create the patterns which would affix to a back plate or match plate. Pattern making is dying art among skilled laborers and investing in 3D printing eliminates the need for a pattern maker. With warehouse space at a premium, being able to print a one off pattern frees up warehouses for more important uses.   

Investment Casting

You could use a number of machines, but for best results you should be using F370/Fortus 380/Fortus 450/Fortus 900, reason they vary is the size of the build platform.

Using plastic to create the pattern instead of wax, internalizes the pattern making process by burning out the plastic fill instead of wax.

Injection Molding

Any Connex or J750 because Digital ABS is the recommended material for it. Strongest, highest temp, most durable polyjet material.

Machining an injection mold is outmoded when you have a 3D printer. Instead of sending out to have a new mold made or a modification to an existing mold, you can print a new one for a fraction of the cost!

Blow Molding

Any Connex or J750 because Digital ABS is the recommended material for it. Strongest, highest temp, most durable polyjet material.

PolyJet 3D printing can provide an alternative means of prototyping otherwise costly molds. With only small adjustments to the mold design and molding operations, PolyJet 3D printed molds can produce hundreds of parts in production-grade PE, PP and PET quickly and cost effectively. PolyJet molds are not intended to be replacements for soft or hard tools used in mid-and high volume production. Rather they are intended to fill the gap between soft tools and 3D printed prototypes.

Thermoforming

Best use case is same as investment casting and material will vary based on application/needs.

End Use Parts

Fortus 380/Fortus 450/Fortus 900/ Desktop Metal Production

Have a hard time finding replacement parts for old equipment? Extend the end of your machinery’s life by 3D printing replacement parts!

Mass Production

Dekstop Metal Production

Introducing the Production system by Desktop Metal is the printer for you. It’s the first metal 3D printing system that is capable of mass production. This system delivers the quality, speed, and cost-per-part that’s required in order to compete with traditional manufacturing processes.

In a field where innovation saves lives, Stratasys 3D Printing Solutions empower doctors, researchers and medical device manufacturers to work faster, test more thoroughly and personalize care like never before. From medical surgical planning to physician training and pre-clinical testing, Stratasys has opened up a whole new world of capabilities in the medical industry.

Surgical Guides/Models

Connex 3/J750 for detail, accuracy.

3D scan of a person or something and they will print a life-like model of the organ or whatever is the focus of their operation. This allows surgeons to practice with plastic models. This is often used in the educational space for students.
