PolyJet technology enables horizontal layers of just 16 µm (0.0006"), fine details, and ultra-thin walls down to 0.6 mm (0.024") depending on the geometry of the part. That means PolyJet is capable of building very precise mechanical components, offering you high-quality prototypes for a shorter time to market.

How Does PolyJet Work?
PolyJet works by jetting photopolymer materials in ultra-thin layers onto a build platform. Each photopolymer layer is cured by UV light immediately after it is jetted, producing fully cured models that can be handled and used immediately, without post-curing. The gel-like support material, designed to support complicated geometries, is subsequently removed by water jetting.
