PACE Innovations has on site our own Stratasys Dimension 768 SST FDM Printer.
Unlike smaller, cheaper, desktop printers the Dimension SST is an industrial scale printer designed for professional level rapid prototyping. It utilises a dual extrusion system allowing the printing of ABS plastic and a soluble support material; which can be dissolved out of the part. This allows complex interior voids, overhangs, negative space and moving parts to be printed, which cannot be achieved on the typical desktop unit. With a total build area of 203 x 203 x 305mm, our printer can handle a huge variety of rapid prototyping tasks.
PACE utilises the printer in our own development and prototyping work as well as providing contract printing to various organisations including V8 Supercar Teams and Local Manufacturers.
