Build Tray: Explained
Ideal Footprint-to-Tray Ratio
With a special unique rotating build tray and stationary print head, the J55 3D printer allows for a better footprint-to-tray ratio while keeping the excellent quality and resolution that PolyJet technology provides.
|Print Area||1174 cm2|
|Build Volume||140 mm x 200 mm x 190 mm|
|Full Volume||1174 cm2 x 18.7 cm = 22 liters|
|Max Printable Height||18.7 cm|
The printing tray is divided into the active printing area and the transfer zone, which remains empty throughout the printing process.
The transfer zone enables quicker printing and no time delay thanks to the axis motion during the printing process. The dynamic transfer zone area also changes depending on the size and placement of models on the tray.
This allows the stationary print head to print a layer and reposition within the same print tray rotation. The transfer zone also reduces the purging time for the print head.
Using the entire tray for active printing without the transfer zone is not recommended, as it would result in the print taking about 2x longer.
Three Separate Swaths
The printing tray is broken up into three swaths. In general, the print jobs placed on the inner swath can finish up to 3x faster than print jobs placed on the outer swath.
