3D Printing Materials Stratasys introduced three new colour resin materials for realistic soft-touch prints
3D printing company Stratasys takes realism to the next level with the introduction of new Agilus 30 Colors materials for soft touch prints with hyper-realistic look and feel.
Stratasys introduced three new colour resin materials for the Stratasys J7 and J8 Series of Polyjet 3D printers. The three new materials — Agilus30 Cyan, Agilus30 Magenta and Agilus30 Yellow — allow users to achieve a level of design realism beyond what was previously possible.
Full-colour prototypes that look and feel like a final product are time-intensive, expensive and have previously been virtually unachievable. Agilus30 Colours takes the existing rigid materials and extends them to include flexible, full-colour modeling capabilities with exact shore value definition ability. This allows designers to achieve full-colour prints and prototypes that look, feel and flex like the final product, all of which are key to achieving designs with true realism.
“With using these new materials our customers can achieve a superior level of design — from colour to texture to flexibility, further extending their 3D printing capabilities and allowing them to design without limits,” said Shamir Shoham, Vice President of Design for Stratasys. “We have seen amazing prints from our customers; models so realistic that it is hard to differentiate between those that were 3D printed to those that were real. These new materials open up countless possibilities, especially with our customers in the entertainment and consumer goods industries.”
The J7 and J8 Series of 3D printers are designed for high-capacity, high-speed, multi-material prints for a variety of design and engineering applications. With the addition of the new Agilus Colors materials, designers can now create and print according to their specific business needs.
