Rapid prototyping

Fortus 400mc 3D production system.

Objects printed from the rapid prototyping machine (3D printer)

The 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.A female student examines the product post print

The Fortus 400mc builds parts in nine production-grade engineering thermoplastics:

  • ABS-ESD7 for static dissipation
  • ABSi for translucence
  • ABS-M30 for great tensile, impact and flexural strength, and environmental stability
  • ABS-M30i for biocompatibility
  • FDM Nylon 12 for maximum toughness
  • PC for superior mechanical properties and heat resistance
  • PC-ABS for the highest impact strength, plus the mechanical properties and heat resistance of PC and the surface appeal of ABS
  • PC-ISO for biocompatibility and superior strength
  • PPSF for highest heat and chemical resistance
  • ULTEM 9085 for best mix of mechanical, chemical and thermal properties
