PolyJet 3D Printing Technology

About the Process
PolyJet is a 3D printing technology similar to inkjet document printing, but instead of jetting drops of ink onto paper, PolyJet 3D printers jet layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly cure them with UV light. The layers build up to create a precise 3D model or prototype.
Along with the selected model materials, the PolyJet 3D printer also jets a gel-like support material specially designed to uphold overhangs and complicated geometries. It is easily removed by hand or water.

+ Design for Manufacturing Tips
- Gaps for mating parts: 0.1mm off of each wall
- Avoid sharp corners at
- Avoid enclosed designs. To remove support material from PolyJet parts, the machinist must have line-of-sight access to all areas that require cleaning.
- Ribbing helps avoid warping on long, flat parts
