Took a quick check back at the spec sheet for the ProJet 1500. Here's what it says in terms of size of parts/performance.
Max Build Size (XYZ) 6.75 x 9 x 8 in (171 x 228 x 203 mm) Native Resolution (xy) 1024 x 768 DPI Layer Thickness Standard Mode 0.004 in (102 μm) High speed Mode 0.006 in (152 μm) Vertical Build Speed Standard Mode 0.5 in/hour High speed Mode 0.8 in/hour (VisiJet® FTI-Zoom material only)
@jfrisbie: You are correct and thanks for pointing out my mistake. The vertical build speed is .8 inches per hour, not .08 inches an hour. The official spec sheet says that in high-speed mode, the unit prints at 0.8 in/hour using VisiJet FTI-Zoom material only.
I believe this is .8 inches per hour. As we run two of their older machines this would be slightly faster build rate than what we see. Although the build speed depends on the layer resolution that you choose. I find that going from .010 layer thickness to .007 adds about 40% to any given parts build time.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
