Stratasys J750 is now PANTONE validated.Having announced the launch of 2 new 3D printers – F120 FDM 3D Printer and V650 Flex Stereolithography 3D Printer earlier this week, pioneering 3D printing company, Stratasys, has also announced a partnership with Pantone, the global authority and provider of physical and digital color standards for full design-to-production workflow.
Announced at the Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) Conference 2019 in Chicago, Stratasys has now become the first 3D printing solutions provider to be PANTONE Validated™ – reflecting the qualification and approval to simulate Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors on printed objects and align with how modern designers work today.
With this substantiation, the multi-material and multi-color PolyJet 3D printers – J750 and J735, are now endorsed to be meeting the PANTONE Validated standards of color quality and realism. Designers, modelers, and manufacturers now have simple and accurate color communication, with the easy “choose-and-print” color-matching to Pantone identities.
With everyone involved in the design process essentially speaking the same language, it potentially reduces iterations, shrinks design costs, and accelerates the time-to-market process.
Designers and manufacturers can leverage on the most advanced 3D printing technologies from Stratasys to produce the most vibrant and color-correct 3D printed parts not found elsewhere in the market – and with confidence that the simulated Pantone colors reflect the design intent.
The Pantone functionality is expected to be available by July 2019, directly within the GrabCAD Print environment, and colors can be accessed and applied to 3D printed models easily just by browsing the relevant Pantone book.
