PolyJet Matrix Technology (PJM) 3D Printing
High Detail Multi-Material 3D Printing
PolyJet Matrix 3D Printing revolutionizes design possibilities by enabling designers to seamlessly integrate multiple high-detail resins into a single build. This innovative technology empowers the creation of parts with variable shore hardness, making it ideal for applications such as over molds, soft touch parts, and assemblies. By harnessing PolyJet Matrix 3D Printing, designers can achieve intricate and customized designs with exceptional precision and efficiency, expanding the horizons of what is achievable in additive manufacturing.
What is PolyJet 3D Printing?
PolyJet uses photopolymer materials that are jetted onto a build tray layer by layer, and then cured by UV light with incredible precision and speed. PolyJet is the only 3D printing technology able to create models with multiple materials in a single print. This allows for the production of single parts with a wide range of physical properties including soft rubber, rigid, clear and opaque surfaces. This versatility combined with the excellent surface finish makes PolyJet ideal for rapid prototyping and product design.

Combine 3 Materials
PolyJet technology is best known for is ability to 3D print multiple materials in a single build to create overmolds, soft touch parts & living hinges. Forge Labs prints using Connex3 technology which allows the blend of 3 unique materials: RGD450 Rigid White, Agilus 30 & VeroClear.
Rigid materials can be combined with Agilus 30 to create custom shore values between A30 - A95. Custom material hardness options are found below:
Agilus30 + RGD450
Agilus 30 (Formerly TangoBlack)
Agilus 30 rubber-like material offers a variety of elastomer characteristics with superior elongation at break, tear resistance and tensile strength. By combining other PolyJet rigid materials with Agilius 30, you can mimic the softness of rubber along a Shore A hardness scale for a variety of modeling & prototyping applications.
Tensile Tear Resistance
General Purpose Transparent Parts
VeroClear via PolyJet is a highly rigid acrylic based transparent material. The material is ideal for concept models and visuals offering excellent detail visualization for applications such as light pipes & transparent enclosures. The PolyJet printing process produces highly accurate prototypes for testing fit, form and function with excellent dimensional stability and water resistance. This material can be combined with Agilus 30 and RGD450 to create multi-material 3D Prints.

Rigur (RGD450) Rigid White
Durable Prototyping Resin
Rigur (RGD450) is durable white rigid resin that is a great overall choice for high detail prototypes and assemblies. Rigur is more durable than other PolyJet family resins, offering superior durability and impact resistance. The increased elongation & flextural strength that Rigur provides makes it ideal for more demanding prototyping applications.

Design Guidelines | PolyJet 3D Printing
This design guidelines covers specific design parameters, which will need to be followed to prevent build failures from occurring. Minimum tolerances specified by our engineers ensure that your part build successfully and to the highest quality possible. Parts that do not adhere to these design guidelines may not resolve correctly, or be overly fragile when handled.
Multi-Material 3D Prints require a multi-body STEP file to manufacture from.
Maximum Build Volume350mm x 350mm x 400mm (14” x 14” x 16”)
Layer Height28 Microns
Surface Finish350mm x 350mm x 400mm (14” x 14” x 16”)
Optimizing your design for PolyJet Matrix Technology will also help keep 3D printing costs down. Price is primarily based upon the volume of material consumed to manufacture your part. Small, thin walled parts are priced the most competitively in this technology. However, since the technology uses a support structure, hollow cavities and internal voids will be fill with support which has a significant cost associated with it in this technology. Therefore, optimizing your designs to reduce overhangs can significantly reduce the cost of 3D Printing in PolyJet.
Why Use PolyJet Matrix 3D Printing
High Precision: PolyJet technology is known for its exceptional level of detail and precision. It can produce intricate and complex geometries with smooth surfaces and fine features, making it ideal for applications that require high-resolution prints.
Multi-Material Capabilities: One of the significant advantages of PolyJet 3D printing is its ability to print with multiple materials simultaneously. It can create models with different properties, colors, and textures within a single print job. This allows for the production of realistic prototypes and functional parts with varying material characteristics.
Wide Material Selection: PolyJet printers support a broad range of materials, including rigid and flexible options. From standard plastics to rubber-like materials, they offer versatility in material properties to match specific requirements. This enables the production of parts with different mechanical properties, textures, and even transparent components.
Smooth Surface Finish: PolyJet technology produces parts with smooth surfaces straight out of the printer. The layer lines are virtually invisible, resulting in finished products that require minimal post-processing. This is advantageous for applications where aesthetics and fine details are crucial, such as consumer products and visual prototypes.
Case Studies | PolyJet Matrix
Parts printed with PolyJet have a smooth surface right out of the printer. With only little sanding, they are ready to accept off-the-shelf acrylic paints and lacquers.
International Submarine Engineering needed to produce a mold for an antenna, which would traditionally be produced out of aluminum using CNC.
3D printing bone scans were used to show the effects of low gravity on bone density for a exhibit at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum.
