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 high resolution 3D 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 default Vero material is VeroWhite Plus (RGD835) 3d printed using very thin layers facilitating intricate detail with large build volumes.
Verowhite Plus is ran along side one of the Agilus 30 materials to allow dual and mixed material parts combining flexible and rigid elements for elastomer 3d printing in mixed shore A values.
Depending on the machine and machine load out we run other Vero materials, full colour VeroCyan, VeroMagenta, VeroYellow and VeroBlack for full colour 3d printing.
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 colour or white.
Excellent aesthetics & detail.
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
"Thanks for pushing the order through in time. We were happy with the parts and the dimensional accuracy was very good in the vertical direction which isnt always the case with SLS."
A good service, quick and accurate, with friendly help in resolving problems.
