General MultiJet Printing Series: Concept Modeling, Rapid Prototyping, Indirect Manufacturing


Concept Modeling, Rapid Prototyping, Indirect Manufacturing

The first installment of 3D Systems’ MJP Best Practices for the ProJet MJP 2500 will focus on concept modeling, rapid prototyping, and indirect manufacturing.

ProJet MJP2500:

  • Fast – Reliable – Capable workgroup/work team 3D printer
  • World-class precision, accuracy, and surface finish
  • Rigid, Engineering, High Temp and Elastomeric materials
  • Functional prototyping, jigs and fixtures, concept modeling, sales/marketing models, early production runs, and broad indirect manufacturing capabilities
  • Injection-molded part quality, surface textures, screw bosses, robust snap fits and metal inserts, drilling/tapping/machining, optical clarity, paintable, dying, and tinting

EasyClean Post Processing

The EasyClean system utilizes two warmer units that use heat to melt wax supports away, without manual labor. Operate in a typical

 

office environment, resting on a table, without objectionable noise or odor, and without requiring special ventilation or equipment, only requiring access to a sink. The system can hold a part as large as the full build size and can be left active throughout the day for simple and high-volume post-processing of parts.

High Fidelity, High Quality, Sharp Features, & Smooth Surfaces

MJP printing process generates a part with over 1.1 billion drops per cubic inch of part volume allowing the creation of even the smallest details. The support

wax technology instantly solidifies in place during part formation creating world-class feature fidelity and smooth surfaces. The wax supports are automatically created in the print software and allow for simple and hands free post-processing. Even the most complex geometries and entrapped cavities are easily realized without scarring of the part surfaces.

Communication, Sales and Marketing Concept Models

High feature fidelity, sharp edges, and smooth surfaces enable highly detailed and aesthetically pleasing communication models.

Rapid Prototyping and Indirect Manufacturing

A robust material set, high fidelity, part accuracy, and smooth surfaces enable high-quality functional prototypes, and early

functional production parts for product builds. Engineering and specialty materials provide for a broad range of indirect manufacturing capabilities including Thermoforming, Injection Molding, RTV/ Polyurethane Molding, and Sheet Metal Forming.

 

Painted and Dyed Models

Achieve full product realism by simply painting or dying the MJP materials.

 

Smooth Surfaces, no sanding required

Complete paint drying, no inhibition, no tackiness

High Visual Contrast Gray and Tan materials for sales/marketing communication and concept models

 

Microfluidics and Capillary Physics

1.1 billion droplets per cubic inch allows for extremely small feature resolution. Numerous clear materials with excellent optical clarity and

a watertight process makes and ideal technology for microfluidics, capillary physics, and lab-on-a chip applications.

 

 

 

Microscopic Parts and Assemblies

Extremely small functional assemblies can be printed.

Shaft / Bearing assemblies as compared to the size of a US penny.

Large and Complex, Multi-Part, Functional Printed Assemblies

The high-resolution capability extends to large parts as well as small. Large build size plus high resolution allows for a wide variety of complex functional assemblies like this clock model.
