F770 With the widest build chamber of any fused-deposition-modeling (FDM) printer in Stratasys’ stable of technologies, the F770 can print large parts or more than one part at once. The printer can use ABS and acrylonitrile styrene acrylate resins provided by Stratasys.
What’s new? The printer, which Stratasys released in late April.
Benefits Size, ease of use and reliability. Priced at less than $100,000, the printer is appropriate for making large tooling, jigs, fixtures and prototypes, and it achieves fast, consistent, reliable results. Because of its large build volume, the printer can produce parts in one piece that would otherwise have to be assembled; this reduces labor costs and the need to keep components in stock. The printer is easy to use and network, and it boasts precise thermal control for the production of complex parts. With it, users can become more self-sufficient, with less reliance on the supply chain.
