The ProJet MJP 5500X 3D Production System features five build modes and improved print speed to deliver high fidelity prototypes for a variety of applications. The build area in all modes is 517.78 x 380.75 x 294.39 mm, (20.39 x 14.99 x 11.59 inches), (x,y,z).
HD, High Definition Mode – Allows the user rapid part building capability on a full platform. The mode produces high quality parts for concept models, verification designs and highly functional prototypes. HD mode prints at 25 micron layer thickness.
UHD, Ultra High Definition Mode – Allows the user to build very high resolution parts with exceptional surface finish and superior accuracy. UHD mode prints at 16 micron layer thickness.
UHDS, Ultra High Definition Mode (Single Material) – Allows user to print very high resolution parts with exceptional surface finish, superior accuracy and higher throughput (print speed). UHDS mode will print the entire build in one of the base materials loaded on the printer. The user can select which material to run in this single material mode. UHDS mode prints at 16 micron layer thickness.
XHD, Extreme High Definition Mode - Allows the user to build at the very highest resolution and surface quality. XHD mode prints at 13 micron layer thickness.
XHDS, Extreme High Definition Mode (Single Material) – Allows the user to build at the very highest resolution and surface quality and higher throughput (print speed). XHDS mode will print the entire build in one of the base materials loaded on the printer. The user can select which material to run in this single material mode. XHDS mode prints at 13 micron layer thickness.
Part Stacking and Nesting
Stacking: The user can utilize the entire build area by stacking parts vertically in the z-direction to fill up the entire build envelop with parts. The user can control the space between layers to minimize support material usage and build time. Hours can be saved by stacking parts and submitting single, long builds overnight and weekends.
Nesting capability allows parts to be placed within the boundaries of one another but not overlapping the part structure itself.
Simultaneously use Two Materials for Part Building
The ProJet MJP 5500X provides the simultaneous use of two build materials along with a support material. The 3D printer system has a total of four material delivery modules, (MDM). Each MDM holds two bottles of material. This provides for a total of four bottles of support material and four bottles of part material.
Support material is loaded into both MDMs located on the left side of the machine, for a total of four bottles. All bottles of support material must be the same type.
Part material is loaded into the MDMs located on the right side of the machine. The upper MDM is designated MDM “A” and the lower MDM is designated MDM “B”. Two bottles of part material A are placed into MDM “A” and two bottles of part material B are placed into MDM “B”.
The following part materials are available for the ProJet MJP 5500X:
- VisiJet® CR-CL, Rigid Clear Build Material
- VisiJet® CE-NT, Elastomeric Natural Build Material
- VisiJet® CR-WT, Rigid White ABS-like Build Material
- VisiJet® CE-BK, Elastomeric Black Build Material
For support material, the ProJet MJP 5500X uses VisiJet® S500.
