Stratasys today announced its latest effort: the Mojo 3D Printer, which comes in a complete system called a 3D Print Pack. The Mojo 3D Print Pack is the market's lowest-priced professional-grade complete 3D printing system.
Priced at $9,900, the Mojo 3D Print Pack contains:
- Mojo 3D Printer
- Print Wizard & Control Panel Software
- WaveWash 55 Support Cleaning System
- Start-up Kit, including:
◦ Starter QuickPack Print Engine of ivory ABSplus modeling material
◦ Starter QuickPack Print Engine of support material
◦ Ecoworks tablets
◦ Modeling bases
Mojo is a patented Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM®) system. In the U.S., Stratasys offers a leasing option with payments as low as $185 per month.
What's new in Mojo?
The ABS material spool and the print head are integrated to a single package, called the QuickPack print engine. The price for such a print engine is USD$399 for 80 cubic inches. To ensure optimal reliability, a fresh print head is part of each material change. Material loading is similar to snapping in an inkjet cartridge on a paper printer.
According to Stratasys, Mojo is industry's easiest operation in a compact 3D printer. Mojo measures only 25 inches wide, 21 inches deep and 18 inches in height (64 x 53 x 46 cm). No training is needed to get it set up and running, and settings are selected at the host computer, not the printer itself.
Other technical data:
Building envelope: 127x127x127 (5x5x5 in)
Layer thickness: 0.17mm (0.007 in) - – as thin as a postcard
Volume capacity: 3.78 L
Weight: 27kg (50lbs)
Material: Ivory colored ABSplus plastic
Available on: June 15, 2012
How to print with Mojo:
1. Prepare your CAD file. The Print Wizard software that comes with Mojo 3D Printer converts the STL output from your CAD software into precise deposition paths that guide the extrusion head, printing your model one layer at a time. The Print Wizard automatically slices and orients your concept model and creates any necessary support structures, too. All you have to do is click "print."
2. Print your model and its support materials into an ABSplus model.
3. Remove the support. Remove your concept model from the Mojo build chamber, pop it off the modeling base and remove the soluble support material. It is a self-contained, hands-free cleaning system, and it requires no plumbing.
4. Then it is ready for any post-processing you need: drilling, painting or even plating.
Mojo has a layer resolution previously available only in the Dimension Elite and the Fortus Production 3D Printer line, according to Stratasys, and it has a 50% percent speed improvement over Dimension.
