Stratasys has introduced GrabCAD Voxel Print, a new software solution for its J750 3D printing solution which provides true voxel level control during the design and 3D printing process. Manipulating microscopic voxels, which are the building blocks of 3D printing, enables users to achieve 3D printed effects and properties not possible before. This, combined with the unique full colour, multi-material 3D printing capability of the Stratasys J750 3D Printing Solution, opens up a new world of Digital Materials and advanced structures for a range of demanding customer applications, including academic research, product design, and biomedical.
“With GrabCAD Voxel Print, we are taking the power of our unique PolyJet full colour, multi-material capability used by customers all over the world and multiplying exponentially the opportunities it affords. This machine control utility is designed to enable our customers to manipulate thousands of materials at the voxel level to produce 3D models that fit precise material requirements unachievable any other way. It, in effect, turns the Stratasys J750 3D Printer into the world’s premium platform for experimentation, discovery and innovation,” said Gina Scala, Director of Marketing for Global Education, Stratasys. “Amazing new product ideas are often born in the research lab; that’s where GrabCAD Voxel Print can make a substantial impact on design and manufacturing.”
Stratasys’ unique Digital Materials are achieved by combining PolyJet photopolymers inside the 3D printer. The Stratasys J750 platform, equipped with GrabCAD Voxel Print, unlocks the ability to manipulate these 3D printed material concentrations, structures and colour mapping at the voxel level. This allows users to produce entirely new Digital Materials for their specialised needs – creating advanced structures, gradient colour patterns, internal properties and textures never before possible with 3D printing, to meet precise material requirements for various applications.
