PartSnap Introduces Objet PolyJet VeroClear

PolyJet VeroClear material is now available from PartSnap® 3D Printing.  This material adds to our PolyJet line and complements our FDM 3D printing materials.   VeroClear comes out of the printer with a clear-frosted finish but it can be worked and polished to be optically clear.

Here is a picture of VeroClear as-printed and after polishing:

Not only does the material perform well and look great, but it can be used for all sorts of applications requiring a translucent or clear part – even optics!   See the amazing work Disney engineers have done with this 3D printed material:

Over at the research department of Disney, they’re bringing to life a whole new future for interactive devices using 3D printing, with a little help from Objet’s VeroClear transparent material!

They envision a future where interactive devices including the incredible 3D printed optics in this video  – are 3D printed rather than assembled. Why? Because only 3D printing allows designers to rapidly produce new prototypes, test them, and eventually produce customized products tailored to the demands of individuals or the needs of specific jobs.
