Laser Lines first 3D printing bureau with Stratasys J750
Rapid Manufacturing Sales Manager Dave Price explains how anything is possible with our new and exciting full colour system.
The Stratasys J750 is a revolutionary 3D printer. It is the world’s only full colour, multi-material, high resolution 3D printer – and Laser Lines is the only 3D printing bureau in the UK to have one ready to go to work for you.
What is so good about this printer? Simply put, it pushes 3D printing into areas it hasn’t been before. It’s good enough to produce parts for all kinds of areas that have been challenging for 3D printers in the past. Automotive interiors spring to mind as a great new application – imagine printing a walnut effect dashboard easily and in one print.
What can be achieved
Product evaluation of consumer products is another potentially huge application – now you can 3D print colour packaging, such as toothpaste tubes, complete with complicated branding, and the results are amazing first time.
Then there’s running shoes. The J750 can print models of shoes that look just like the real thing. With the arrival of the J750 in our bureau, we can make product prototyping more convenient than ever for design engineers.
It’s not just the new applications that make the J750 such a breakthrough printer, it’s the extra speed with which it can produce a part. First off, there’s no need for us to keep swapping trays between different colours and materials, which means the part gets finished and over to you much faster.
But the J750 saves additional time too. The part that comes out is a perfect mock-up of what you designed on screen – there’s no need for finishing, smoothing and painting. The time and money you save on finishing alone is going to add up really quickly and have a big impact in reducing your product design cycle time.
