PolyJet technology is a powerful additive manufacturing method that produces smooth, accurate prototypes, parts and tooling. With 16-micron layer resolution and accuracy as high as 0.1 mm, it can produce thin walls and complex geometries using the widest range of materials.
BENEFITS OF PolyJet
Create complex shapes, astonishingly fine details, and smooth surfaces with speed and precision to match the look and feel of your end product.
Multiple Materials and Colors
PolyJet jets multiple materials and full CMYK colors into a single print allowing for a quick production of realistic parts and design iterations early in the product development process.
With over 100 material combinations to choose from, you can incorporate diverse material properties and aesthetics – including color, flexibility, opacity – directly into your component.
Powered by Stratasys, the inventor of PolyJet technology, our engineers have access to the broadest team of PolyJet applications engineers and expertise at Stratasys Direct Manufacturing to guide you to new solutions.
PolyJet is best suited for small parts when accuracy, detail, and surface finish are essential.
Common applications include:
- Presentation models
- Master patterns
- Form and fit models
- Flexible, rubber-like models
- Medical device prototypes
- Prototypes for fittings, valves, and parts with complex interior features

Using our wide variety of PolyJet materials, you can combine several materials to simulate over-molding,
build flexible and multi-colored parts, and create complex models as fine as 16 microns.
PolyJet: Frequently Asked Questions
How fast is PolyJet compared to other 3D printing technologies?
PolyJet is extremely fast – the fastest of all our technologies. The actual turnaround time depends on the size of the component and desired resolution, but we ship most parts within 2 or 3 days upon receiving the order.
What level of detail can be obtained with PolyJet?
PolyJet is excellent at producing fine feature detail. At its highest resolution, PolyJet can build in layers as thin as 0.016mm and with an X/Y resolution of 0.0043mm.
Can components built with PolyJet function as production parts?
Typically PolyJet is not considered suitable for production applications because the materials are photocurable resins that do not remain stable with exposure to UV light. However, PolyJet can be used to make a pattern to create end-use parts with Urethane Casting.
