FDM Rapid-prototyping system gets improvements. (Keeping up with Auxiliaries).

Rapid-prototyping systems maker Stratasys in Minneapolis has two new upgrades for its FDM Titan system, which builds models from polycarbonate and ABS by fused deposition modeling. First, resolution of model-layer thickness has increased to 0.005 in. (0.127 mm)--a level previously available only on the company's highest-capacity machine. Improved resolution allows design engineers to build models with smoother surface finish and Finer feature detail.

The second upgrade is the addition of the company's WaterWorks automated support-removal process. This uses water-soluble model supports, which are simply dissolved after model completion. Tel: (952) 9373000,
