PolyJet Matrix Technology

Multi-Material 3D Printing in Elastomers & Rigid Polymers

Multi-Material 3D Printing

Parts built in 1-3 business days

PolyJet is one of the most versatile 3D printing solutions available, capable of producing parts with incredible precision and speed in a wide range of material properties. Parts are created by jetting microscopic thin layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray. This is the only print technology that allows you to create parts in multiple materials including soft rubber-like, rigid, clear and opaque surfaces all in one build.

Blend Multiple Materials In a Single Build

PolyJet is best known for is ability to 3D print multiple materials in a single build to create overmolds, soft touch parts & living hinges. Forge Labs prints using Connex3 technology which allows the blend of 3 unique materials: Rigur, Agilus 30 & VeroClear.

Rigid materials can be combined with Agilus 30 to create custom shore values between A30 - A95.

Colours Available: Black, Grey, White

Advantages of PolyJet Matrix Technology

  • Rapid Turnaround

    One of the fastest proceses on the market allowing you to create smooth, detailed prototypes that convey final-product aesthetics in as little as 2-4 business days.

  • Flexible

    Create smooth, detailed prototypes with a variety of elastomer characteristics including Shore scale A hardness, elongation at break, tear resistance and tensile strength.

  • Highly Accurate

    16-micron layer resolution and accuracy as high as +/- 0.1 mm, it can produce thin walls and complex geometries using the widest range of materials.

  • Superior Surface Finish

    PoyJet provides a near paint ready surface right out of the 3D printer with only minimal wet-sanding & polishing.

  • Rapid Tooling

    Blend multiple simultaneously to incorporate a variety of properties – and even colors – into your 3D printed models and parts.

  • Versatile Materials

    Rubber-like materials, clear and tinted translucent shades, Simulated Polypropylene, and specialized photopolymers for dental and medical industries.

Guide to Painting 3D Printed PolyJet Parts

Parts printed with PolyJet 3D technology have a smooth surface right out of the printer. With only little sanding, they are ready to accept off-the-shelf acrylic paints and lacquers.

Mold Tools with PolyJet

International Submarine Engineering needed to produce a mold for an antenna, which would traditionally be produced out of aluminium using CNC. Instead. 3D printing was selected as a cheaper, faster, and more flexible method to produce the part.
