The Objet1000 Plus 3D Production System from Stratasys offers a build envelope measuring 1,000 × 800 × 500 mm (39" × 31" × 19"), plus accelerated speeds and simple postprocessing to reduce cost per part. Optimized block movement is said to enable print speeds as much as 40 percent faster over the system’s predecessor, and smooth surface finishes are possible in high-speed mode. According to the company, the system enables mixing materials and part sizes while maintaining precision, and users can choose from more than 100 Stratasys material for printing. Workflow is identical to smaller PolyJet systems, and the machine is designed to support unattended operation. Applications include aerospace, automotive, medical devices and consumer products manufacturing, including 1:1 scale prototypes, large ergonomic production tools or low volumes of small parts.
