Cleaner and Easier Rapid Prototyping

Cleaner and Easier Rapid Prototyping

Stratasys (, in partnership with Objet Geometries (, 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.
