Digital Materials in 3D Printing
Polyjet 3D printers can fabricate Digital Materials
Polyjet 3D printers provide the unique ability to fabricate Digital Materials — composite materials with predetermined mechanical properties. Digital Materials are made right in the 3D printer, when two or three standard PolyJet photopolymers are combined in specific concentrations and structures to provide the desired mechanical and visual properties.
Each Digital Material is based on one of several hundred tested and accepted combinations of our primary PolyJet photopolymers. A single prototype can contain as many as 82 distinct material properties, all created in one build process. You can simulate products made of elastomers and rubber by creating Digital Materials with a full Shore scale A range including: Shore 27, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, 70, 85 and 95. With Digital Materials, you can also simulate standard plastics such as engineering-grade ABS.
