Stratasys has seemingly thrown the 3D printing rule book out the window by launching another industry first with its market-disruptive full colour 3D printer - the J750 - that can mix-and-match full colour material gradients to produce product-matching colour prototypes without the time consuming need for post-processing.

The J750 is expected to improve Total Cost of Ownership by eliminating many of the traditional complex processes, time and resources required to create product-matching prototypes. Designers and engineers can physically experience true product prototypes within hours of developing an initial concept for immediate design and function validation. Design decisions can be made instantaneously and with full confidence to help accelerate product delivery.

The company says this is the ultimate 3D printing solution for product designers, engineers and manufacturers, as well as service bureaus.

The J750 has been on beta test at the Colorado headquarters of OtterBox, the #1 supplier of smartphone cases in the US.

The Stratasys J750 is a game-changer for both OtterBox and the 3D printing industry.”

The Stratasys J750 allows customers to choose from more than 360,000 different colour shades plus multiple material properties - ranging from rigid to flexible and opaque to transparent. Prototypes can include a vast array of colours, materials and material properties in the same part, speeding production of realistic models, prototypes and parts for virtually any application need - as well as delivering incomparable 3D printing versatility to produce tooling, molds, jigs and fixtures and more.
