3D Printing. Polyjet Rigid materials
Polyjet rigid materials are a corner stone to our 'Fine Detail' service giving you parts with excellent detail, thin walls and smooth surface finishes.
The Polyjet 3d printing process jets and then flash UV cures liquid resin using inkjet derived technology. It's ideal for designs incorporating thin walls and fine details and is often used by our clients to produce prototype models for design verification and fit and form testing.
Layer thickness is very thin, with 30um (0.030mm) layers 3d printed as standard with a 16um option for Ultra fine detail printing. Surface finish is excellent and the system uses a wax like support material which is jet washed away. We recommend that wall thickness or features in your design should be in excess of 0.6 mm to ensure integrity and a reliable build.
Includes the Vero Clear material option.
Fine Detail Builds
Our core Vero materials are and RGD720 and VeroWhite Plus (RGD835). Both are printed using very thin layers facilitating intricate detail with large build volumes.
RDG720 is a translucent yellow material which gives excellent results for intricate details, as well as offering you a large 500 x 400 x 200mm build volume.
Verowhite Plus is ran along side the Tango Black+ plus material to allow dual and mixed material parts combining flexible and rigid elements.
On occasion we run other Vero materials, including Vero Blue, Vero Black, Vero Grey.
We can run the Digital ABS (RGD515 and RGD535) and High Temp (RGD525) materials as required. Applications include short run injection mould tooling.
To summarise, 3D Printed Vero materials give your designs:
Large format build volumes, up to 500 x 400 x 200mm in RGD720.
Excellent aesthetics & detail in a white or translucent yellow colour.
Fine individual details and wall thicknesses down to 0.6mm or less.
High levels of accuracy & dimensional stability.
Glue and paint printed parts. How to guides available.
Clients choose our Polyjet rigid materials for a wide range of applications. Popular applications include scale model kit 'Master' parts for moulding, Fit and Form prototypes for injection moulding designs, museum display models and agency 3D branding development.

Examples of work In Vero or Polyjet materials.
3D Printed master for a sand casting application.
3D Printing offers a fast and cost effective way to manufacture master parts for a whole range of moulding and casting applications. This part was printed in fine detail using the Polyjet process in 30um layers.
Prototype 'Ear Buds' in fine detail, 3d printed in 16um layers.
Our fine detail is ideal for prototyping injection moulded parts allowing for very fine detail features. This is a polyjet 3d print in 16um layers.
Master 3d printed parts for scale model making.
Wheels and tires are tricky for scale model makers. Our fine detail 3d printing service reproduces the detail using 16um layers. The model pictured is 3d printed in RGD720 for a model truck project.

OUR CLIENTS SAY
"Parts arrived very quickly and to a very high standard. The small parts I ordered would have been difficult and expensive to make with conventional subtractive manufacturing techniques."
Efficient and useful service allowed me to test prototypes in aluminium. Discussion allowed concentration on important features for testing. Speed of delivery good. Would recommend.
