Technology

PolyJet

In addition to its high detail and smooth surfaces, PolyJet offers the unique ability to print precision parts and assemblies with multiple materials, all in a single build. A single part can contain different colors, levels of transparency, and diverse physical and mechanical properties, making PolyJet ideal for complex visual models and prototypes.

Decorative image showing rows of hexagons of different colours, printed using PolyJet
Realistic multicolor prototypes can be created in a fraction of the time, and cost, of traditional manufacturing, thanks to PolyJet printing.
Illustrative model of static mixer showing distribution of orange and blue particles
Combining different materials, colors, and opacity is possible with PolyJet, as shown by this illustrative model of a static mixer in Vero and Vero Clear.
