Looking ahead, Thinkable Studio aims to utilize the J55 to offer services to new industry sectors, such as furniture. This recently saw the team design and 3D print a scale model of a chair that accurately replicated the different wood and leather textures of the final design. The team is also increasingly supporting the needs of clients within the healthcare sector, leveraging the 3D printer to optimize form and function of new medical products prior to clinical trials.
Stratasys Vice President Zehavit Reisin, who leads the company’s materials and design segment in Europe and Asia, said, “Thinkable Studio has been a shining light for the use of full-color, multi-material 3D printing within product design, improving the prototyping process to produce better products for its customers. Our J55 platform offers all these capabilities in a compact, office-friendly platform for the first time, demonstrated by the strong uptake we have had from design studios globally since launch. Through both hardware and software developments, we remained laser-focused on delivering our customers continued efficiencies across the product design workflow.”
