Future collaborative solutions planned
Fraunhofer IGD, the leading international research institute in Applied Visual Computing, has optimized its Cuttlefish® 3D printer driver for Stratasys PolyJet™ 3D printing, and is working collaboratively with Stratasys on future software enhancements.
Cuttlefish® by Fraunhofer IGD makes it possible to work with multiple print materials at the same time and to exactly reproduce the geometry and colors including translucencies and fine shading transitions. Eye prosthesis printed with Cuttlefish® on a Stratasys J750 3D printer. (© Fraunhofer IGD)
Full-color, multi-material PolyJet 3D printing brings incredible realism to product designers and other creative professionals, with up to eight materials printed in one work step. Fraunhofer’s Cuttlefish software package first began supporting PolyJet systems in 2017 via the GrabCAD™ Voxel Print™ interface. Fraunhofer IGD has now improved…
