HONG KONG, April 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stratasys Asia Pacific, subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, today unveiled the industry's first full-color multi-material 3D printer – the Stratasys J750 3D printer – in Hong Kong. The new 3D printer breaks restrictive technology barriers, enabling customers to mix-and-match full color gradients alongside an unprecedented range of materials to achieve one-stop realism without post-processing for the first time. This, together with the system's superior versatility, makes the J750 the ultimate 3D printing solution for product designers, engineers and manufacturers, as well as service bureaus.

 

This true product-matching sports shoe prototype was produced with full color, smooth surfaces, and a rubber-like sole - all in a single print operation on the Stratasys J750 3D Printer.

The Stratasys J750, the premier addition to the Objet Connex multi-color, multi-material series of 3D Printers, allows customers to choose from more than 360,000 different color shades plus multiple material properties -- ranging from rigid to flexible and opaque to transparent.

One-Stop 3D Printed Realism Delivers True Product-matching Prototypes and Unprecedented Cost/Resource Efficiencies

The Stratasys J750, the premier addition to the Objet Connex multi-color, multi-material series of 3D Printers, allows customers to choose from more than 360,000 different color shades plus multiple material properties - ranging from rigid to flexible and opaque to transparent. Prototypes can include a vast array of colors, materials and material properties in the same part, speeding production of realistic models, prototypes and parts for virtually any application need - as well as delivering incomparable 3D printing versatility to produce tooling, molds, jigs and fixtures and more.

The J750 enables near instantaneous decision-making by streamlining the way products are designed, evaluated and brought to market. A true industry milestone, the productivity-boosting J750 is expected to improve TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) by eliminating many of the traditional complex processes, time and resources required. Designers and engineers can physically experience true product prototypes within hours of developing an initial concept for immediate design and function validation with internal stakeholders and end users. Design decisions can be made instantaneously and with full confidence to help accelerate product delivery.

Increased Productivity and Throughput with New PolyJet Studio and Six Material Capacity

The J750's one-stop realism is supported with a streamlined workflow beginning with the all new PolyJet Studio™. The software's new intuitive user interface allows users to simply choose materials, optimize the build and manage print queues. Assignment of colors, transparencies and rigidity is eased via familiar design controls. Color textures can be loaded fully intact via VRML files imported from CAD tools.

The Stratasys J750 also minimizes downtime associated with material changeovers. Featuring a large, six-material capacity, it keeps the most used resins loaded and ready for printing. Newly designed, state-of-the-art print heads means simulated production plastics, like Digital ABS™, can be 3D printed in half the time of other Stratasys PolyJet systems. As 3D printed models are delivered with full colors, color textures and multiple materials, no time is wasted on painting and assembly.

"In addition to rigid 3D models and surgical guides, the Stratasys J750 takes one step further to help us create replica of a patient's body part with the exact shape, nuanced color and texture – be it nerves, bones, muscle or blood vessels – enabling surgeons and medical practitioners to visualize a patient's condition in detail and proceed through operations with confidence, subsequently improving surgery outcome and reducing complications," commented Dr. James Chow, specialist in Dental Implant and Maxillofacial Surgery.

"As the trusted leader in the industry, Stratasys is committed to keep pushing the boundaries of 3D printing and we are proud to set another industry milestone," said Omer Krieger, General Manager of Stratasys AP. "We believe that the J750 is the multi-purpose system with a streamlined workflow that customers can rely on throughout their product development cycle as it allows businesses to remove the complex post-process procedures such as painting and assembly in the prototyping process, while achieving higher product realism through its full-color, multi-material 3D printing capability, as well as use the system for tooling, jigs and fixtures."

Among the many organizations and businesses that can benefit from the J750 are consumer product companies, service bureaus, design firms, education, universities and research institutions, medical device companies, hospitals, medical schools, and special effects and animation companies.
