ULTEM 9085's high strength-to-weight ratio is ideal for auto, aero and military applications
Using 3D printing to develop rapid functional prototypes allows you to:
For a wide variety of functional prototyping needs, Stratasys has a 3D printing solution for you.
When you need a prototype that can withstand thermal, chemical and mechanical stress, look no further than FDM technology . Utilizing production-grade thermoplastics like ABS and PC, tough prototypes and custom test fixtures will help take your functional testing to a higher level for superior performance data and certification confidence.
Ideas that require a functional prototype that looks and feels like your next product are custom-suited for PolyJet technology. This technology has the capacity to print multiple materials in one automated build –giving you the ability to prototype products containing soft-touch parts, clear components, living hinges and shock absorption. What’s more, it can print with rubberlike materials in a range of Shore values, so you can experiment with greater freedom and test with unsurpassed realism. And for rapid injection molding tooling, Polyjet is the right technology for the job.
Connex3 3D printers combine multi-material, multi-color capability with PolyJet technology's smooth, precise surfaces to produce the most realistic and accurate prototypes and concept models.
The Fortus 380mc and Fortus 450mc 3D Printers deliver reliable, consistent results for demanding functional prototyping applications that require engineering-grade materials like PC, ABS and PC-ABS.
