New Material- Nylon 12

System Overview

Designed and manufactured for the highest accuracy and repeatability, this production system is distinct from other additive fabrication systems. It provides part tolerances that are substantially improved over previous systems.

System Comparison Features:

  • Parts are produced within an accuracy of +/- .0035 inch or +/- .0015 inch per inch whichever is greater(+/- .089 mm or +/- .0015 mm per mm whichever is greater).*
  • Largest build envelope  36 x 24 x 36  inch (914 x 610 x 914 mm)
  • The most material bays:
    2 build material and 2 support material bays for extended unattended builds
  • Multiple layer thickness (build speed) options:
    0.013 inch and 0.010 inch (0.330 mm and  0.254 mm) for faster throughput
    0.007 inch (0.178 mm) for higher surface finish and feature detail
  • Ideal for large parts and high volume of parts

System Specifications

System Highlights:

  • Largest build envelope of 36 x 24 x 36 inch (914 x 610 x 914 mm)
  • Highest throughput – 2.2 x faster than the Fortus 200mc
  • Precision ball screw technology for increased accuracy, repeatability, and reliability
  • Holds the most material volume
  • Based on material, manufactured parts can be used for high heat applications
