Additional Info

This material utilizes a waxy support material that is dissolved after printing is completed. Because the support material slightly changes the texture of the product, and isn’t applied to the entire product, you will see slight variability in texture over the surface of the model.

The pricing model of Frosted Detail Plastics gives you transparency and a high level of control to manage the costs of the 3D print with design decisions.

In general, minimum wall varies based on features

The more stress is put on your object, the thicker it has to be. While the minimum wall is 0.3mm, this does not mean all parts of your structure will be strong enough at those thicknesses. For most designs, we recommend designing thicker walls as 0.3mm walls remain very, very brittle. Wires that support objects (like trees or lollipops), for instance, need to be thickened so they don’t snap.

Parts that jut out are more likely to break during shipping

To protect your pieces, sometimes it is helpful to build a cage around your object. This is especially true for thin wires that jut out (like the post on a model ship), the thinner the structure the more brittle the part. However, please note that a cage might cause some leftover support material on your part, meaning your part might be slightly yellow. If you plan on painting your model, we recommend cleaning off any excess wax before painting because the wax prevents paint from sticking. Alternatively, you can thicken the wires that jut out to 0.6 – 0.8mm thick.

Min Supported Wall Thickness
A supported wall is one connected to other walls on two or more sides.
0.3 mm
Min Unsupported Wall Thickness
An unsupported wall is one connected to other walls on less than two sides.
0.6 mm
Min Supported Wires
A wire is a feature whose length is greater than five times its width. A supported wire is connected to walls on both sides.
0.6 mm
Min Unsupported Wires
A wire is a feature whose length is greater than five times its width. An unsupported wire is connected to walls on less than two sides.
0.8 mm
Min Hole Diameter
The accuracy of a hole not only depends on the diameter of the hole, but also on the thickness of the wall through which the hole is printed. The thicker the wall section, the less accurate the hole becomes. Through holes must also allow for line-of-sight clearance to ensure all material is cleared during post-processing.
0.8 mm
Min Embossed Detail
A detail is a feature whose length is less than twice its width.
The minimum detail is determined by the printer’s resolution.When detail dimensions are below the minimum, the printer may not be able to accurately replicate them. Details that are too small can also be smoothed over in the polishing process.
To ensure details come out clearly, make them larger than the indicated minimum. We may refrain from printing products with details smaller than the minimum, since the final product will not be true to your design. If your product has details smaller than the minimum, try making them larger, removing them, or considering a material with finer detail.
0.1 mm
Min Engraved Detail
A detail is a feature whose length is less than twice its width. Engraved or debossed details go into a surface.
0.1 mm
Min Clearance
Clearance is the space between any two parts, walls or wires.
To ensure a successful product, make the clearance between parts, walls, and wires greater than the indicated minimum. If your clearance is too small, try making the gap bigger, or consider fusing the parts or features if their independence is unnecessary. You can also try a material with a smaller minimum clearance.
0.05 mm
Min Escape Holes
Escape holes allow unbuilt material inside hollow products to be removed.
Normally you don’t need to consider this, our technician will add escape holes before printing.
When products contain hollow cavities, they are often filled with powder/liquid even after they are removed from the build tray. If escape holes are not large enough, or the geometry of the product makes it difficult to shake or blast the powder out, we cannot successfully clean it.
4 mm
Interlocking/moving or enclosed parts?
Sometimes the interlocking/moving parts can’t be printed, since the supports inside the cross section can’t be removed.
Require Support Material?
Because each layer needs to build off the last, for some material, angles of more than 45 degrees generally require supports to be printed along with the design. Supports are not inherently detrimental for your design, but they do add complexity to the printing process and lead to less smooth finish on overhanging parts.

Material Spec Sheet

MJP Frosted Detail Resin is 3D printed using MJP/Polyjet (MultiJet Modeling/Polyjet) technology.

PolyJet/MJP Process

PolyJet prototyping technology is used to build your design with this material.

Stratasys’ patented PolyJet inkjet technology works by jetting photopolymer materials in ultra-thin layers onto a build tray, layer by layer until the model is completed. Each photopolymer layer is cured by UV light immediately after being jetted, producing fully cured models that can be handled and used immediately. The gel-like support material, which is specially designed to support complicated geometries, can easily be removed by hand and water jetting.
