RAPID prototyping, ELASTOMERS, 3-D printers, and THREE-dimensional printing
The article discusses the company Stratasys which is bringing to market advanced elastomers and enhanced materials for its leading Fused Granular Manufacturing (FDM) and Polyjet machines that are used in three-dimensional printing. It states that the FDM elastomer solution provides manufacturers with new levels of elasticity, durability with true soluble support, while advanced colors for Polyjet drive enhanced realism in transforming legacy design and prototyping processes.
RAPID prototyping, NEW product development, PROTOTYPES, ENGINEERING models, and EQUIPMENT & supplies
The article evaluates the Eden550V, a PolyJet rapid prototyping system, from Stratasys Inc. and offers information on its speed and resolution settings which allows users to match these properties to specific projects.
RAPID prototyping, THREE-dimensional printing, and EQUIPMENT & supplies
The article focuses on the growing popularity of three-dimensional (3D)-printing technology for rapid prototyping tasks. Topics discussed include the partnership of McLaren Racing with 3D printing company Stratasys, the forecast by market analyst Research and Markets on the expected increase of 3D-printing by 2021, and the advancements in rapid prototyping technology. It also discusses the efforts to enable the technology to develop prototype that can function similarly to the final product.
Reports on the importance of 3D printers in bringing rapid prototyping capabilities in-house for many plastic manufacturers.

The article features the Eden500V Polyjet large-format rapid prototyping system by Object Geometries Co. and distributed by Stratasys Inc. in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The system uses four material cartridges that support the larger builds, so the machine can operate longer untended, improving productivity over existing Polyjet systems. The settings offer a horizontal and vertical resolution of 600 dots per inch.
