3D Systems’ ProJet 3500 HDMax and CPXMax 3D printers are designed to offer increased productivity and larger high-definition prints in the production of functional plastic parts and investment-casting wax patterns for product design and manufacturing applications.
Both printers incorporate the company’s Multi-Jet Modeling (MJM) print technology, including a production-grade printhead; advanced material management; full-platform, high-definition printing; tablet-like touchscreen controls; and remote tablet and smartphone connectivity.
The printers are compatible with 3D Systems’ range of VisiJet print materials, including the VisiJet X jetted plastic material, which is designed to have the look, feel and performance of injection-molded ABS plastic. This material is formulated for greater durability and functionality, and is said to be well-suited for prototyping, product mockups and end-use applications that require extreme toughness and high temperature resistance.
