Stratasys aims at setting the standard for full-color multi-material 3D printing, through new materials for PolyJet™ 3D printers. These new materials give product designers breathtaking realism and graphic sharpness for opaque materials. 

The addition of new VeroUltra™ White and VeroUltra™ Black materials deliver a consequent realism boost for a broad range of prototyping projects. The materials simulate high-quality opaque plastic parts, even when they are very thin. Text and labels on bottles and packaging are sharp enough to meet 2D graphic standards. Color contrast is enhanced where high color separation is expected. Finally, the materials give a significant realism boost to the simulation of natural materials such as wood, fabrics, and marble.

 

“What seemed impossibly realistic last year is even better this year.”


“PolyJet 3D printing continues to be the best-in-class modeling solution for designers as we continuously improve,” said Stratasys Design Vice President Shamir Shoham. “What seemed impossibly realistic last year is even better this year.” Historically, accurately simulating color, material and finish, or “CMF,” has been a very expensive and time-consuming part of the process. Over the last few years, Stratasys tried to change this equation with its PolyJet™ solutions for designers. The company has introduced PANTONE® Validated colors, thus the colors in hand match the colors on the screen. Materials like VeroUltra Clear have introduced properties like glass-like clarity or flexibility. Software formats like 3MF have streamlined the workflow so high-fidelity modeling takes little more than just click and print. 


The new opaque colors extend realism to even more prototyping applications, such as bottle labels, mobile devices, back-lit screens and panels, and dolls


“The color quality is superb,” said Dennis Harroun, a part designer based in Albuquerque, N.M., in the southwestern U.S. His firm, Mana Digital Albuquerque, develops 3D-printed models for games, toys, jewelry, and the film industry, and has been beta testing the new materials with Stratasys printers. “Stratasys’ opacity is by far the best I’ve seen from 3D printing, hands down, and it would be extremely difficult to replicate the quality through any other modeling method.”

The new opaque color materials are available now for the J8 Series™ and J7 Series™ 3D printers and in June for the J55™ 3D printer.
