Stratasys subsidiary Solidscape, a specialist in high-precision wax pattern 3D printers, has unveiled its new S300 series of 3D printers. The machines are targeted at jewelry manufacturers, service bureaus, and investment casting companies.

3D printing giant Stratasys likes to cover all bases. From additive manufacturing factories of the future to simple 3D printed foot orthotics, the Minnesota-headquartered company demonstrates an interest in virtually every nook and cranny of the 3D printing industry.

It’s therefore no surprise that Stratasys has its own 3D printed wax pattern specialist, Solidscape, which is responsible for developing 3D printers specifically for jewelry makers. The subsidiary’s 3D printers are also used by industrial customers for specific applications.

As part of its overall mission to provide unrivaled jewelry 3D printing solutions to its customers, Solidscape has this week lifted the lid on its new line of jewelry-specific 3D printers, the S300 series, as well two new 3D printing materials.

“The growing global demand for high-end custom jewelry we see requires professional tools that can produce any design without limits,” said Fabio Esposito, Solidscape President. “The new S300 Series printers and materials offer jewelers unique 3D printing accuracy, precision, and reliability.”

Solidscape says its new 3D printers, the S350 and S370, utilize a re-engineered material delivery system, temperature control system, and doubly sized tank capacity to deliver overall reliability for jewelry makers. Both printers use Solidscape’s Smooth Curvature Printing (SCP) technology, a combination of precision drop-on-demand jetting and meticulous milling, which purportedly delivers “the industry’s highest accuracy, unmatched at 6 μm resolution,” as well as a smooth surface finish.

The Stratasys subsidiary has also released two new 3D printing materials compatible with its new line of 3D printers, as well as existing machines. One of the materials, a castable material named “Midas,” provides a clean burnout with no thermal expansion, and is suitable for metal casting with materials including platinum as well as room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) molding.

This 3D printing material works alongside Melt-J, a non-toxic dissolvable support material that eliminates the need to create or remove support structures, making the entire printing process more efficient.

These new materials have purportedly been designed to work with existing manufacturing and casting processes, removing the need for special burn-out schedules or equipment.

“For every profession out there, having the right tools is extremely important,” commented Hagop Matossian of Bostonian Jewelers and Manufacturers, a Solidscape customer. “Solidscape machines are worth their weight in gold.”
