Conquer Demanding Projects With Ease

Taillight, lit, with red, white and amber translucent panelsThe Fortus 400mc 3D production system produces accurate, durable, repeatable 3D parts with superior throughput. It comes in two configurations: the basic system, which builds parts as large as 355 x 254 x 254 mm (14 x 10 x 10 in.); or an optionally upgraded system, which builds parts as large as 406 x 355 x 406 mm (16 x 14 x 16 in.) and features two material bays for maximum uninterrupted production. The 400mc builds in nine materials, including high-performance thermoplastics for biocompatibility, static dissipation and resistance to heat and chemicals. With four layer thicknesses to choose from, you can fine-tune your desired balance between FDM’s finest possible feature detail and the fastest build. Fortus 400mc throughput is twice that of the Fortus 250mc.

Insight Software

Monitor Displaying CAD rendering of 3D Printed PartInsight software prepares your CAD program’s STL output to be manufactured on a Fortus system by automatically slicing and generating support structures and material extrusion paths. For maximum control, users can manually edit parameters that determine the look, strength and precision of parts as well as the speed and material use of the FDM process.

With Insight, you can:

  • Optimize build orientation for maximum strength and smoothest surface finish
  • Customize supports for fast, easy removal and best use of materials
  • Program pauses into the build for any reason, such as to embed hardware or circuitry
  • Manipulate tool paths for advanced control over part properties

Included with Insight is Control Center. This sophisticated software application communicates with user workstations and Fortus systems, to manage jobs and monitor production status. Design, engineering and manufacturing teams can network and share 3D manufacturing capacity to maximize efficiency and throughput.
