  • What Is MultiJet Printing?

    MultiJet Printing (MJP) is an inkjet printing process that uses piezo printhead technology to deposit either photocurable plastic resin or casting wax materials, layer-by-layer. MJP is used to build parts, patterns, and molds with fine feature detail to address a wide range of applications. These high-resolution printers are economical to own and operate, and use a meltable or dissolvable support material to simplify post-processing. This also makes support removal virtually a hands-free and allows even the most delicate features and complex internal cavities to be thoroughly cleaned without damage.

  • About MultiJet Printing (MJP)

    MJP printers provide quick turnaround on smooth, high-resolution, hard plastic parts with complex geometries. The printing process consists of UV bulbs and photopolymer materials. MJP printers offer the highest Z-direction resolution with layer thicknesses as low as 16 microns. Selectable print modes allow users to choose the best combination of resolution and print speed, making it easy to find a combination that matches the needs of the application. MJP parts have a smooth surface finish and can achieve accuracies rivaling SLA for many applications. Recent material advances have improved the durability of plastic materials making them suitable for some end-use applications.

    Office compatibility is another benefit of MJP printers, offering convenient and affordable access to high-quality prototypes and indirect manufacturing aids. MJP printers are ideal for direct investment casting applications in jewelry, dental, medical, and aerospace applications where digital workflows provide significant time, labor, quality, and cost advantages. MJP wax printers also offer a digital alternative to traditional lost-wax casting processes, eliminating time consuming and costly processes while integrating seamlessly with traditional casting methods and materials.

MJP Applications

MJP delivers true-to-CAD part accuracy in a diverse range of plastic, elastomeric, composite, and wax materials for fast and affordable 3D printed parts across industries. MJP is an excellent choice for:

MJP Material Properties & Uses

Our MJP materials include a wide range of functional, precision plastics, elastomeric, multi-material composites, and wax, enabling a broad set of applications for concept modeling, functional prototyping, rapid tooling, investment casting, and medical applications requiring biocompatibility.

  • Engineering Grade

    Developed to bring enhanced durability and strength to MJP printing, these materials include options to simulate ABS or polypropylene to deliver the material properties you need.

  • Rigid

    For MJP parts that look and feel like injection-molded parts, available in a variety of colors from white, black, clear, to gray and tan.

  • Elastomeric

    High elongation and Shore A hardness make these materials great for MJP prototypes with rubber-like functionality.

  • High Temperature

    Get high stability parts with heat deflection temperatures up to 250°C.

  • Biocompatible

    USP Class VI capable and/or compatible with ISO 10993 standards.

  • Multi-Material Composites

    Print parts in single or several base materials, or mix multiple rigid and elastomeric materials to achieve custom performance characteristics.

  • Wax

    Get the same melt and burn-out characteristics of standard casting waxes with VisiJet 100% wax 3D printing materials.

MJP Printers

We offer an integrated additive manufacturing solution for MJP including hardware, software, and materials. MJP technology delivers true-to-CAD accuracy with fast print speeds, easy operation, and hands-free post-processing for high productivity and true simplicity, from file to finished part. 

MJP 3D printers accelerate product development, producing functional precision plastic, elastomeric, and multi-material composite parts. MJP wax printers are ideal for the production of complex, 100% wax, precision casting patterns for investment casting in jewelry and industrial applications.
