Design Guidelines: PolyJet
Our basic guidelines for PolyJet include important design considerations to help improve part manufacturability, enhance cosmetic appearance, and reduce overall production time.
|NORMAL RESOLUTION||19.3 in. x 15.4 in. x 7.9 in.|
|NORMAL RESOLUTION||490mm x 390mm x 200mm|
|NORMAL RESOLUTION||0.00118 in.|
|NORMAL RESOLUTION||30 microns|
Minimum Feature Size
|NORMAL RESOLUTION||0.012 in.|
For well-designed parts, tolerances of ±0.005 (0.1mm) for the first inch plus ±0.001 in./in. (0.001mm/mm) for each additional inch can typically be achieved. Note that tolerances may change depending on part geometry.
Minimum free-standing wall or feature is 0.030 in. (0.76mm) and the minimum thickness of structural walls and functional features is 0.040 in. (1.0mm). Holes, channels, and slots less than 0.030 in (0.76mm) in diameter/width are not going to form; maximum length-to-width aspect ratio is 2:1.
PolyJet provides the ability to choose a desired hardness or combine material properties into a single build, which makes it ideal for prototyping overmolding parts. Shore A hardnesses of 30A, 40A, 50A, 60A, 70A, 85A, 95A, and rigid are available in these colors:
Digital Clear / Translucent
- Digital White
We use multiple additive machines that offer large build sizes, accurate parts, and quick production times. Our PolyJet equipment consists of Objet260 Connex3 and Objet350 Connex3 machines.
