When I talk with many of our clients about our PolyJet 3D printers or DLP(P3) 3D printers, many would ask, “Why would I spend this much money on that printer when I could just get a cheap commercial resin 3D printer?” Well, if you’re considering other desktop resin 3D printers for your business, I’d like to recommend that you think again. Our Stratasys J35 Pro, powered by PolyJet™ technology, is our basic resin 3D printer but consistently outperforms its competitors in every aspect of comparative testing. This revolutionary 3D printer sets the standard for high-quality 3D printed parts, offering vivid details, smooth surfaces, and rapid speeds with an easy workflow. No other desktop resin 3D printer can match the remarkable results of the J35 Pro.

 

Part Accuracy and Quality

The J35 Pro’s PolyJet 3D printing technology stands out for delivering supreme accuracy and unmatched quality. Unlike many other desktop resin 3D printers that produce parts with visible warping and obstructive support pins, the J35 Pro’s seamless form-fit and functional parts can be created quickly and more cost-effectively. Its best-in-class geometric accuracy allows for clicking mating parts together right after support removal, making it the perfect choice for designers and manufacturers.

Furthermore, the J35 Pro delivers near-injection molding surface quality and detail, providing the ability to combine greyscale color, near PMMA-level transparency, multiple textures, and moving parts to create realistic models. Decision-makers can hold lifelike prototypes in their hands, aiding in better design evaluations and quicker decision-making.

Ease of Use

The J35 Pro takes ease of use to a whole new level with its user-friendly features:

  1. 4x Faster Printing: Cut print times from 10+ hours to just a few hours, eliminating the need to run print jobs overnight.
  2. Water-Soluble Support: Remove support structures safely and conveniently with WSS™150, a water-soluble support material that dissolves in regular tap water.
  3. Multi-Finish Parts: Achieve vibrant matte, gloss, and dual-finish parts regardless of the part’s complexity.
  4. Greyscale Pallets: Print not only solid objects but also texts, labels, and graphic textures with up to three different materials in one print.
  5. Accurate Form-Fit Parts: Precise and uniform parts straight off the printer, eliminating the need for extensive post-processing.

 

Fast Print Speed

The J35 Pro offers a superior 3D printing experience, providing same-day functional prototypes. Unlike other technologies that require lengthy post-processing, the J35 Pro delivers parts with precision and uniformity, reducing the time needed to prepare parts for use.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

While other 3D printers may seem cheaper initially, hidden costs can quickly accumulate as print volume and labor costs increase. The J35 Pro’s efficient material consumption and minimal labor requirements result in a significantly lower total cost of ownership compared to other desktop resin 3D printers. The superior accuracy and smooth surface finish of the J35 Pro also reduce the hours spent on post-processing, further lowering costs.

The Stratasys J35 Pro sets a new standard for desktop resin 3D printers, offering superior part accuracy, surface quality, ease of use, and cost-effectiveness. Its PolyJet technology enables cleaner, faster, and safer workflows, while its versatile capabilities make it ideal for various applications. With the J35 Pro, you’ll experience the best-in-class 3D printing that surpasses all competitors, setting a new benchmark for the industry.

So, if you’re looking for a 3D printer that combines outstanding performance and efficiency, there’s no better investment than the Stratasys J35 Pro. Embrace this cutting-edge technology, and propel your engineering and design projects to new heights.
