Designed for brilliant design and productivity, Stratasys new 3D Printer, J826™, combines part realism and productivity and will be commercialized to half the price of other J8-series.

The new 3D Printer includes full PANTONE™-Validated color and multi-material 3D printing. With these capabilities, designers can save weeks on design cycles with exceptional with print quality that portrays realistic prototypes.

Ideal for mid-volume modeling requirements, the 3D printer would enable applications in industries such as consumer goods and electronics, automotive, and educational institutions. The manufacturer claims that the J826 supports the full design process with same day send-to-print and easy post-processing.

At the software level, the GrabCAD Print™ software has been made compatible with the printing system as it allows a smooth import of common CAD formats like Solidworks.

Furthermore, with a build volume size of 10” x 9.9” x 7.9” (255mm x 252mm x 200mm), the 3D Printer offers multiple print modes to enable users to adjust the speed and quality of the print and to meet specific needs, from High Quality Mode to High Speed Mode.

Feedback from first users

One company that already leverages the 3D printer is Cambridge, UK-based BiologIC Technologies. The company utilizes the 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. “For us, the design freedoms delivered by full-color, multi-material 3D printing enables us to accelerate our design process with zero restrictions. This empowers us to create ultra-realistic parts for our prototype using materials that, thanks to their advanced properties, will enable us to fully 3D print our medical instrument and effectively personalize medicine once our product is finalized.”

On top of that, the fundamental cost and time savings achievable with the J826 make it possible to actually get our ideas off the ground and rapidly progress – there isn’t another technology available today that can tick all these boxes,” Rollings added.
