The J750 from Stratasys is the world’s only 3D printer that can bring your most imaginative ideas to life without restrictions. With unrivaled aesthetic performance in terms of full colors and multi-materials, created prototypes now look, feel, and operate like finished products. The introduction of GrabCad Voxel Print paired with the J750 increases the array of digital materials to work with and open doors for more demanding applications.
Rapid advances in technology have led to major shifts in how we work. This is especially true in the manufacturing industry where innovation has led to new and improved capabilities in the form of artificial intelligence (AI) machines and computer-aided design (CAD).
As for additive manufacturing, it has moved beyond just 3D printing. We are no longer held back by being able to just design and print in one dimension, color, texture, or material. With the advances in additive manufacturing technologies, 3D printing has now evolved into an idea engine where your 3D print designs are only limited by your own creativity.
Imagine if you could design and fabricate from the bottom up, with pure control over the microscopic properties of the materials that you are using in terms of color and texture variations. This is known as the manipulation of thousands of materials at the voxel level and allows one to create almost anything imaginable and unachievable any other way.
This process is known as Voxel Print and allows users to be in total control by actually programming the product material and its viscosity at the voxel level. The software unlocks the ability to manipulate 3D printed material concentrations, structures, and color mapping at the voxel level, and meet precise requirements for various applications.
Before the release of Voxel Print, printed parts using the J750 PolyJet Printer could only achieve full colors and textures on the outside skin. Moreover, the interior of the printed parts was restricted to a single material, usually a white rigid plastic.
The release of Voxel Print, however, opens up unimaginable opportunities for material science research, as materials can now be blended or selectively placed according to needs.
Be it art with photorealistic colors, models of the body that look and feel like the real thing, 3D printing materials that mimic traditional building materials of brick or wood, all those strengths can be magnified with a new aesthetic that can rival or even surpass CGI.
Together with the multi-color and multi-material machine Stratasys J750 PolyJet Printer, GrabCad Voxel Print is changing the way we design, fabricate, and 3D print. Users can now go beyond from just only manipulating exterior geometry and properties, but also interior material properties, exact color matching, and many more.
