Methods 3D Inc., the newly formed subsidiary of Methods Machine Tools, Inc. now offers 3D Systems’ high-throughput ProJet MJP 3600 3D printer for professional product prototyping and manufacturing. Its MultiJet Printing technology is said to produce high-definition parts with a high-capacity build volume and print speeds as much as twice as fast as the previous generation. Data processing capabilities support larger files, enhancing productivity and producing parts that are truer to CAD.

The series ProJet MJP 3600 include models designed for printing detailed wax patterns for jewelry castings, precise patterns for other lost wax foundry casting applications, and dental applications for precise models and casting wax ups. It can also be used for healthcare applications, including drill and cut guides for dental and medical procedures with the ability to print in USP Class VI-capable, bio-compatible materials.

The printer is compatible with a range of materials including VisiJet materials in UV curable plastic, with a range of colors, translucency and tensile strength, as well as castable wax. Support structure is comprised of easy to remove, melt-away wax for simple post-processing, without hand scraping, high-pressure waterjets, caustic chemical baths or special facility requirements. The ProJet MJP 3600 provides a net build volume measuring 11.75" × 7.3" × 8" (298 × 185 × 203 mm)

Methods 3D has installed the ProJet MJP 3600 within its multiple technology centers across the United States to provide product demonstration, training, support and development of customer solutions. The move is part of a partnership agreement with 3D Systems, announced in October 2015.

"We're excited to offer the ProJet 3600 that uses MultiJet Printing technologies to print durable precision plastic parts, along with the extensive line of 3D Systems Direct Metal Printers, " said Benjamin Fisk, general manager, Methods 3D Inc. "Parts made with MultiJet Printers have a smooth finish, high durability, excellent material properties, and can achieve accuracies rivaling SLA (Stereolithography) for many applications."
