Polymer 3D printing solutions Stratasys Ltd. has announced four new P3 materials including Somos® WeatherX™ 100, as well as the development of its Kimya PC-FR and FDM HIPS validated materials for the F900™. Accordingly, the addition of these new materials opens the possibilities for more manufacturing applications. Also, to accelerate the expansion of material options available in the marketplace.
Stratasys is reinforcing its P3™ DLP platform for end-use production and manufacturing-grade prototyping with four new performance-grade materials for Origin® One printers:
Stratasys is also introducing automatic support generation functionality to its GrabCAD® Print software for Origin® One. Moreover, workflows become easier as users can choose from predefined support profiles based on material properties – rigid, tough, or elastomeric – or customize for workflow control.
To support the continued growth of the Stratasys F900TM, Stratasys has two new materials for the F900, as well as eight new colors for ULTEM™, PC, and PC-ABS. The expanded material line creates more value on the platform by expanding Stratasys’ application space with a larger variety and a bigger portfolio. Additionally, new colors allow customers more flexibility and reduce post-process costs.
The new OpenAM™ software, including an open material license, is also now available for the F900. Thus, enabling printing with exploratory open materials.
“Expanding our portfolio of validated materials offers our customers the additional choices needed to address a broader range of applications to produce at scale,” said Stratasys CEO Dr. Yoav Zeif. “As additive manufacturing continues to enjoy growth, there is no limit to what is possible with 3D printing, and we are pleased to be able to deliver on this promise to our customers.”
*These materials will become commercially available late 2023 / early 2024.
