The J826 makes it possible for enterprise groups to save weeks on design cycles with exceptional print quality to create highly realistic prototypes that help achieve the exact intent of the designer, bringing them to life much faster and increasing quality with more design iterations.
The J826 is particularly suited for enterprises with mid-volume modelling requirements in industries such as consumer goods and electronics, automotive and educational institutions.
Cambridge, UK-based BiologIC Technologies is using the J826 3D Printer to develop advanced medical instrumentation best-described as a ‘desktop PC of life sciences’. ‘Our flagship product architecture will be 100% 3D printed using the J826, so it’s no exaggeration to say that it – and indeed our company – is completely and only enabled by this 3D printer,’ Co-Founder Nick Rollings said.
Built as a mid-range full-colour 3D printer for enterprise shops, the J826 supports the full design process with same day send-to-print and easy post-processing. It provides the same exceptional resolution and detail as other Stratasys J8-series 3D printers, with models matching the shape, material, colour and finish of final products.
‘We believe that exceptional resolution, full colour, multiple materials and high productivity should not be the province of the few,’ said Shamir Shoham, Vice President, PolyJet Business Unit at Stratasys. ‘That’s why we extended the power of our world-class J8-series 3D printers to the new J826 – addressing the needs of mid-volume enterprise shops and educational institutions at a lower price.’
The J826 3D Printer leverages the same high-performance PolyJet materials as the J850, meeting the needs of both designers and design engineers. It includes the full range of textures, transparency with VeroUltraClear, and PANTONE-Validated colour (final validation is pending), offering a universal language of colour that ensures reliable, realistic decision-making across every stage of the design process. Fully supported by GrabCAD Print software, it enables a smooth import of common CAD formats (e.g. Solidworks). It is expected to be available to order in May 2020.
