Stratasys on Monday rolled out a new mid-range 3D printer that's designed to make full-color, seven material printing more affordable.
The company launched the J826 3D printer, which will cost half as much as Stratasys' J8- PolyJet line.
J826 features full Pantone validated color and multi-material printing and tools that will appeal to designers. The idea is that enterprises and education institutions can enable designers to improve quality of iterations with more realism and faster design cycles.
According to Stratasys, the J826 could be used in industries such as education, consumer goods, electronics and automotive.
