At about half the price of other J8-series 3D printers and much of the same technology as its PolyJet printing siblings, the Stratasys J826 combines multi-material 3D printing with Pantone-validated colour in a design-office friendly package.

Leveraging the same technology and materials as its large-format counterpart, the J850, Stratasys says that the J826 meets the needs of both designers and design engineers, while allowing the user 7 material options in a single print.

It includes the full range of textures, transparency with VeroUltraClear, and Pantone-validated colour matching for reliable, realistic decision-making across every stage of the design process.

Supported by GrabCAD Print software, it enables a smooth import of common CAD formats including Dassualt Systèmes Solidworks - from which event the product made it’s official unveiling.

The J826 3D Printer features a maximum build volume size of 255mm x 252mm x 200 mm, which with a seven-material capacity means operators can load their most frequently used resins and avoid downtime associated with material changeovers.

Multiple print modes let users adjust the speed and quality of the print to meet specific needs, from High Quality Mode to High Speed Mode.

The J826 is expected to be available to order in May 2020.
