PolyJet is a powerful 3D printing technology that produces smooth, accurate parts, prototypes and tooling. With microscopic layer resolution and accuracy down to 0.014 mm, it can produce thin walls and complex geometries using the widest range of materials available with any technology.

PolyJet 3D Printers jet layers of curable liquid photopolymer onto a build tray.
The process begins with re-processing where build-preparation software calculates the placement of photopolymers and supports material from a 3D CAD file.
Then the 3D printer jets, and instantly cures tiny droplets of liquid photopolymer.
Very fine layers collect on the build tray to create exact 3D models or components.
PolyJet 3D printing is similar 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.
The process is simple:
Pre-processing: Build-preparation software automatically calculates the placement of photopolymers and support material from a 3D CAD file.
Production: The 3D printer jets and instantly UV-cures tiny droplets of liquid photopolymer. Fine layers accumulate on the build tray to create a precise 3D model or part. Where overhangs or complex shapes require support, the 3D printer jets a removable gel-like support material.
Support removal: The user easily removes the support materials by hand or with water. Models and parts are ready to handle and use right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.
3D printers using PolyJet technology work with a vast array of materials, including Rigid Opaque and Rubber-like materials in hundreds of vibrant colors, clear and tinted translucent shades, Simulated Polypropylene, and specialized photopolymers for 3D printing in the dental and medical industries. Hundreds of composite materials add to the possibilities.
