What is High Detail Plastic?

High Detail Plastic is a 3D printing material used in MultiJet Printing (MJP) technology. MJP is a 3D printing technology that uses an inkjet-like process by depositing photo-curable resin (part material) and casting wax (support material) layer by layer. The casting wax serves as a scaffold for the photo-curable resin and is then melted away, leaving only the part material. Parts printed using this technology have smooth surfaces suitable for concept models, form and fit testing, and other applications. MJP also offers the highest resolution of any printing technology on the market with fine feature details with layers as thin as 16 microns.

Figure 1 - MPJ Optimization
Figure 1 – Arranging parts to their lowest height allows for shorter build times and quicker turnaround of your 3D print.
Figure 2 - MPJ Optimization
Figure 2 – Support material fills the empty spaces in your part during printing. Once the build finishes, the support material is removed and your part is complete.
Figure 3 - MPJ Optimization
Figure 3 – This configuration works well for some parts, but this part can be further optimized for rapid prototyping.
Figure 4 - MPJ Optimization
Figure 4 – Whenever possible, dividing the part into shorter sections decreased build time and overall cost.
Figure 5 - MPJ Optimization
Figure 5 – This hollow sphere has 1mm holes on the top and bottom to allow for support material drainage.
Figure 6 - MPJ Optimization
Figure 6 – This part would require additional post-processing. In situations like this, it may be beneficial to consider dividing the part in two as in Figure 4.
Figure 7 - MPJ Optimization
Figure 7 – Arranging several parts on a build plate helps reduce the overall cost per part.
