Top 5 Industries That Use PolyJet 3D Printing Technology

In the kingdom of 3D printing FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) has long reigned as the most well-known and accessible technology. However, the tides are changing as technology grows and more options become accessible. TriMech has offerings in several areas of 3D printing technologies including FDM, P3 (Programmable Photo-Polymerization), SL (stereolithography), SAF (Selective Absorption Fusion), and PolyJet. Today we will be focusing on the top 5 industry uses of PolyJet. But First, what is PolyJet? PolyJet printers work very similar to a household inkjet 2D paper printer. Instead of ink, tiny droplets of a UV reactive photopolymer are precisely placed one layer at a time and cured to build a three-dimensional part. The unique way PolyJet printers lay down material allows for blending of base materials into…
