New materials for the Stratasys PolyJet 3D printers offer “breathtaking realism and graphic sharpness” for opaque materials.
VeroUltra White and VeroUltra Black materials provide an important realism boost for many prototyping projects. The materials simulate high-quality opaque plastic parts, even when they are thin. Text and labels on bottles and packaging are sharp enough to meet 2D graphic standards. Color contrast is enhanced where high color separation is expected. And, the materials give a significant realism boost to the simulation of natural materials such as wood, fabrics, and marble.
Historically, accurately simulating color, material and finish, or “CMF,” has been an expensive and time-consuming part of the process. Over the last few years, Stratasys has been changing the equation with its PolyJet 3D printers. The company introduced PANTONE Validated colors so the colors in your hand match the colors on the screen. Materials like VeroUltra Clear introduced properties like glass-like clarity or flexibility. Software formats like 3MF streamline the workflow so high-fidelity modeling takes little more than just click and print.
The new opaque colors extend realism to even more prototyping applications, such as bottle labels, mobile devices, back-lit screens and panels, and dolls.
The new opaque color materials are available now for the J8 Series and J7 Series 3D printers and in June for the J55 3D printer. Learn more on the VeroUltra materials page.
