PolyJet Prototyping Speed Doubles with New Eden350V

The Eden350V has speed-and-resolution settings that allow users to select between highest model quality or highest build speed.

PolyJet Prototyping Speed Doubles with New Eden350V from Stratasys

Stratasys today introduced the Eden350 and 350V PolyJet prototyping systems. Both offer increased resolution and the 350V offers a double speed setting. The new 350 systems are successors to the Eden333.

The Eden350V has speed-and-resolution settings that allow users to select between highest model quality or highest build speed. In its high-speed mode, the 350V effectively doubles the build speed of the predecessor 333 system, which was already among the fastest in the industry. The speed increase is achieved by changing horizontal resolution to 30-microns (0.0011 in.).

In its high-quality mode, a resolution of 16-micron (0.0006 in.) layers enables detail and surface finish smoothness that rivals any competitive process. Both settings offer excellent quality, with an X, Y and Z resolution of 600 x 600 x 1,600 dpi respectively, constituting a 100 percent increase in Y resolution over the Eden333.

The 350 and 350V are built on a new high-performance platform, which was introduced last November. The systems have a larger build envelope than the 333, measuring 13.8 x 13.8 x 7.9 in. They also accept Jumbo-size 3.6 kg material cartridges, allowing larger build volumes and longer unattended build jobs.

The Eden350V has two modeling-material and two support-material cartridges, which increase the unattended build time by 360 percent.

Both 350 systems model with all available PolyJet material families, including the Tango, Vero, and translucent FullCure lines.

Like previous PolyJet systems, Eden350 systems employ a clean, safe modeling process. Sealed liquid-photopolymer cartridges are inserted into the machine, which jets out only the amount needed to build the model. While each model layer is built, it is simultaneously cured with UV light. When models are removed, they are already fully cured, so no exposure to uncured resin occurs throughout the entire process.

Supports are simply washed away using pressurized water. The complete process from downloading the STL file to final part is among the fastest on the market.

Stratasys Inc, Minneapolis, manufactures rapid prototyping systems and 3D printers, and it offers rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing services. Stratasys equipment is used by OEMs such as aerospace, automotive, defense, medical, and consumer product makers. In 2004, the company installed 36 percent of all systems sold worldwide, making it the unit market leader for the third consecutive year, according to Wohlers Report 2005. Stratasys patented the rapid prototyping process known as fused deposition modeling (FDM(R)). The process creates functional models directly from any 3D CAD program using ABS plastic, polycarbonate, PPSF or other materials. The company holds 175 granted or pending global prototyping patents. In addition to manufacturing products, Stratasys is the exclusive North American distributor of PolyJet rapid prototyping systems, manufactured by Objet Geometries, Rehovot, Israel. On the Web:
