New build options from Stratasys increase throughput up to 50% compared with previously available options. The enhancement affects the FDM Titan and FDM Vantage systems using ABS plastic. The exact throughput improvement is said to depend on part geometry, and average speed improvement is 40%. The build option employs a new layer thickness measuring 0.013 in. (0.330 mm), which is best suited to larger geometry where the highest resolution is not required or when faster speed is needed. FDM layer thickness options now include 0.005, 0.007, 0.010, and 0.013 in. (0.127, 0.178, 0.254, and 0.330 mm).

Users can select layer-thickness options to tailor the part’s surface finish, feature detail, and build speed to the job at hand. The 13-slice option is said to give users more flexibility. With one system, users can build anything from very fine, intricate parts such as cell-phone pieces to a large engine block. The build option covers the Titan, Titan Ti, Vantage i-a, Vantage X, Vantage S, and Vantage SE T-Class systems.

The company makes rapid prototyping and direct digital manufacturing systems using a fused-deposition modeling process to create functional prototypes or parts directly from a 3-D CAD program using ABS plastic, polycarbonate, PPSF, or other materials. www.stratasys.com
