POLYJET PROTOTYPING SPEED DOUBLES
Stratasys has introduced the Eden350 and 350V PolyJet prototyping systems. Both offer increased resolution and the 350V offers a double speed setting. The 350 systems are successors to the Eden333. The Eden350V has speed-and-resolution settings that allow users to select between highest model quality or highest build speed. In its high-speed mode, the 350V effectively doubles the build speed of the predecessor 333 system. The speed increase is achieved by changing horizontal resolution to 30 microns (0.0011 in.). In its high-quality mode, a resolution of 16-micron (0.0006 in.) layers enables detail and surface finish smoothness that rivals any competitive process, the company says. Both settings offer an X, Y and Z resolution of 600 x 600 x 1600 dpi respectively, constituting a 100% increase in Y resolution over the Eden333.
