Stratasys has unveiled the next-generation of its full-color, multi-material PolyJet solution—the J850 3D Printer. The J850 offers greater material capacity and faster printing, the company reports. 

Designed for designers, the J850 offers advanced settings that can produce concept models twice as fast as previous J-Series systems. This new Super High Speed Mode gives designers and engineers more time for part refinement by printing concept models at double the speed. In addition, the J850’s larger, seven-material capacity enables designers to print a full range of color, transparency and flexibility combinations in a single part, the company reports. 

Stratasys is also introducing two new PolyJet materials. The company’s new VeroUltraClear material can deliver high clarity and finely detailed models that are similar in appearance to glass. VeroUltraClear can help designers visualize internal features and create concept models that verify the design of clear parts. Additionally, DraftGrey is a low-cost concept material that is ideal for fast, affordable iterations in the beginning of the design process.

“The new J850 has been built to meet the needs of the full design process in industries such as consumer goods, consumer electronics, automotive, as well as education settings,” says Shamir Shoham, vice president, PolyJet Business Unit at Stratasys. “Typically, that process includes two separate streams: evaluating geometric shape with a physical single-color model, and considering color and texture on the screen. The J850 merges these two mediums into one full-color, multi-material model to make better design decisions, earlier.”

The J850 also provides PANTONE Validated color—offering a universal language of color that ensures reliable, realistic decision-making across every stage of the design process. Fully supported by GrabCAD Print software, the J850 can 3D print directly from a user’s favorite professional CAD format to avoid time and complexity associated with converting STL files. 

Stratasys will provide existing J750 customers with a on-premise upgrade path to the J850.
