Stratasys has unveiled several new durable, temperature and chemical resistant FDM thermoplastics for additive manufacturing, these materials can accommodate high temperatures and challenging requirements common on the factory floor.

For the Stratasys F900 there is a new PEEK-based Antero 840CN03 material, formulated to create custom tooling and parts with consistent electrostatic discharge (ESD) performance.

Additionally, Diran 410MF07 and ABS-ESD7 have been launched for the Stratasys F370 3D printer - with Diran a tough nylon-based material formulated by Stratasys, and ABS-ESD7 built for static-sensitive applications and previously only available on the Stratasys Fortus line.

Nearly twice as fast and with an extra materials bay over its predecessor, Stratasys has unveiled the new flagship of its PolyJet 3D printing line-up, the J850.

‘Designed for designers’ is the key pitch from Stratasys, which has worked hard in upgrading the J750 in order to make colour 3D prototyping more of a reality - adding physical benefits to the printer to match up with work on the software (Pantone Validated colour referencing) and materials (fast printing DraftGrey and the new VeroUltraClear material for high clarity).

The new Super High Speed Mode married with the DraftGrey promises prints at double the speed of the J750, so should allow designers more time for concept iterations.

Available for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets, Flyingshapes’ VR CAD workflow allows for 3D spatial modelling with intuitive haptic controls and interactive tools for sketching, surfacing and collaboration.

Powered by Unity real-time rendering on mid- to high-end Nvidia or AMD GPUs, Flyingshapes is a 3D surface modelling tool that allows users to sketch, shape and refine high-end CAD models within a VR headset. Intuitive haptic controls enable users to mold and position objects with exact lines, curves and surfaces using hand gestures in an immersive 360-degree workspace.

Precise measurement tools and positioning aids ensure accuracy, with real-time rendering updating the model in real time. Collaboration tools enable teams to work on projects around the world and share models for review and feedback. Approved, final models can be exported in CAD file formats for 3D printing or use with traditional CAD applications.
