Stratasys announced the new Large-format Fortus 900mc designed to fill need for a production 3D printer with high throughput, precision and repeatability (Read full release). This new generation of the proven large format Stratasys Fortus 900mc Production 3D Printer maintains the industry’s leading accuracy and reliability. With additional key features and certifications, the 3D printer allows for improved use along with a rapid installation process that saves time for the users.
The Stratasys Fortus 900mc uses engineering-grade thermoplastics, including the newly released FDM Nylon 6. Because of its strength, the Nylon family of polymers is one of the most-widely used thermoplastics in traditional manufacturing. This engineering-grade material is used in a range of applications requiring high tensile strength. Stratasys FDM Nylon 6 offers the best combination of strength and toughness among current Stratasys FDM materials
Stratasys also announced that GrabCAD Print software is now commercially available globally and compatible with most Stratasys 3D printers (Read full release). The general release follows a five-month beta trial period and represents an important milestone in Stratasys’ execution of its 3D printing software strategy announced in May. The company’s goal is to drive 3D printing in the digital manufacturing era and towards Industry 4.0.
