Stratasys (www.stratasys.com), in
partnership with Objet Geometries (www.2objet.com), have introduced Eden333, which
can jet photopolymer in horizontal resolution layers down to 16 microns (0.0006
inches) by using Objet's PolyJet technology.
A "cleaner and easier" solution, comments Stratasys' Product Manager Fred
Fischer, the PolyJet technology uses environmentally stable, fully cured
materials. It is safe for use in office environments and requires no special
venting or facility modifications, he says.
In addition, Fischer notes, Eden333 can "add depth" to Stratasys' product
lines now that it can complement the company's patented fused deposition
modeling (FDM), which creates solid models directly from 3D CAD files using ABS
plastic, polycarbonate, PPSF, or other materials.
