Stratasys J826

Multi-material Colour 3D Printer Designed for Designers

Take a look at the Stratasys J826

3D Print Photorealistic Prototypes with ease

Unmatched product realism

The Stratasys J826™ 3D printer delivers unrivaled aesthetic results with full-colour capability including texture mapping and colour gradients. This lets you create prototypes that look and feel like real products, and accurately show design intent in colour, material and finish.

These 3D printers are PANTONE Validated™ making the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM (PMS) colours available in a 3D printing solution.

Based on J850 technology, the J826 supplies the same end-to-end solution for the design process and ultra-realistic simulation — at a lower price point.

Workflow Process

3D print design iterations from concept to final design

Design iteration
Concept Design
Faster, at a Reduced Cost

Super High Speed Printing Mode for concept modeling that is twice as fast as the High Speed Printing Mode. Featuring:

  • New DraftGrey material
  • Great resolution (54um) and surface finish
  • Easy post-processing
Detailed Design
Accelerate With More Detail

More design details earlier in the process:

  • More iterations = better design decisions
  • Improve the accuracy and depth of design feedback from relevant stakeholders (marketing, manufacturing, sales teams, etc.)
  • Easier to identify design flaws
Final Design
Save Time and Money

Achieve realistic look and feel of the end product:

  • More final design models (5x) compared to traditional methods.
  • Exceptional fine details in design, texture and colour.
  • Print 7 materials simultaneously on the same part
  • Easier to identify design flaws

Stratasys J826 Benefits

Lets you build, accurate, repeatable parts faster than ever before

GrabCAD Print Preparation

Smarter Software

Streamline your workflow with GrabCAD Print™ software. GrabCAD Print lets you print directly from your favorite professional CAD formats, avoiding time usually spent converting and fixing STL files. Matching PANTONE Colours is a single-click step in GrabCAD Print, eliminating time-consuming painting or trial-and-error colour matching.

Use smart default settings, tooltips and notifications to guide you through a seamless printing process. Work with detailed views of your model, tray, and slice preview so you can make necessary adjustments before going to print.

Faster Workflow

The large, seven-material capacity of the Stratasys J826 means you can load your most used resins and avoid downtime associated with material changeovers.

Multiple print modes let you adjust the speed and quality of the print to meet your specific needs. For the fastest creation of concept models, use High Speed mode with DraftGrey™ material. Additional print modes support multiple materials and higher print resolutions.

The J826 also feature two support material options: SUP705™, removed with a water jet, and SUP706B™, which is soluble and easily removed for automated post-processing and increased geometric freedom to print complex and delicate features and small cavities.

Unparalleled Capability

The J826 provide unmatched capability to achieve maximum realism for 3D printing applications in the consumer product, medical and educational disciplines. The printers’ vast array of colours and material properties, from rigid to flexible and opaque to transparent, eliminate the need to use multiple processes to create realistic prototypes and models.

Leverage the capability to combine seven different materials in a single part for unprecedented combinations of color, transparency and flexibility.

Nearly 2000 colours from the PANTONE® Formula Guide Solid Coated and all of the PANTONE® SkinTone™ colors let you design and print colour-critical parts with confidence.
