PolyJet 3D is a 3D printing technology known for its customizable material properties and excellent surface finish. It works by jetting UV curable resin onto a build tray in a process that is somewhat similar to inkjet printing. PolyJet 3D printing offers one of the most advanced industrial 3D printing solutions available, producing parts with incredible precision and speed. It also supports the ability to print in multiple materials at once and can simulate rubber materials of different durometers, multi-color 3D printing, and simulated overmolds.

The speed, efficiency, and range of build materials make PolyJet 3D perfect for concept models.
PolyJet 3D can be used to create quick-turn prototypes and test fit and finish.
PolyJet 3D is ideal for making tools, jigs, and fixtures that can be used in production settings
Eliminates the multi-stage processes of traditional manufacturing, such as tooling, milling, and creating molds.
Creates complex shapes with a high degree of precision that would otherwise be impossible to build via traditional manufacturing processes.
PolyJet 3D can build vastly different part geometries, unlike traditional processes that would necessitate a complete retooling of an assembly line to produce a different part.
Offers a vast material selection with a range of properties, as well as the ability to print multiple materials and simulate overmolds.
Because PolyJet 3D can create complex and multi-material parts in a single operation, significantly less build time is needed vs. traditional manufacturing. We can have parts to you in as fast as 1 day.

Polyjet 3D Printing Basics
PolyJet 3D is a 3D printing technology known for its customizable material properties and excellent surface finish. It works by jetting UV curable resin onto a build tray in a process somewhat similar to inkjet printing. PolyJet 3D printing offers one of the most advanced industrial 3D printing solutions available, producing parts with incredible precision and speed. It also supports a wide variety of build materials.
How Polyjet Works
PolyJet 3D printed parts are built using photopolymer liquid resin. The printer places layers of photocurable resins onto a build tray in extremely fine layers. As the layers are placed, they are simultaneously cured via exposure to an ultraviolet (UV) light, solidifying them into solid material matching the programmed CAD file. This process repeats itself layer by layer until the entire part has been constructed. In the case of parts with complex geometries, support structures are added to the part to ensure a successful build and then manually removed during the finishing process.
Benefits of Polyjet 3D Printing
PolyJet is known for its customizable material properties and excellent surface finish, creating prototypes that are both detailed and smooth. PolyJet allows manufacturers to customize material properties, and supports various photopolymer options that can simulate a variety of different end-use materials. Combined with PolyJet’s high accuracy to CAD files and it’s overmold capabilities, this manufacturing process is a favorite for rapid prototyping.
