It’s true that both PolyJet and MultiJet printing (MJP) share a few similarities, like UV curing and layer-by-layer printing, but it’s in the 3D printing process that MJP stands out.

How does MultiJet printing compare to PolyJet 3D printing?


    The PolyJet Standard:

    • Jet-layer printing with UV curable liquid polymer
    • Both part and support liquid material are room temperature and difficult to control before curing.
    • Mechanical support removal uses high-pressure water or caustic solutions
    • Creates gloss finish during post-process
    • 3rd party software required for advanced file modification and build set up
    • Layer thicknesses down to 14 microns

    The MJP Difference:

    • Prints with phase change part and/or support material
    • Jet droplets freeze on contact with platform which provides better control and superior part quality
    • One integrated 3D printing software solution for the entire process
    • 100% wax casting material is extremely cast friendly with no foundry process modifications required.
    • Hands-free wax support material is easy to remove and does not require mechanical force or chemicals
    • Superior print speed on full platform builds
    • Layer thicknesses down to 13 microns
