Stratasys’ newest rapid prototyping (RP) system, the FDM3000, has a build envelope of 10 x 10 x 16 in. and incorporates WaterWorks, a support removal system for use with ABS modeling material.

The FDM3000, priced in the range of U.S.$125,000, is based on the company’s patented Fused Deposition Modeling technology. WaterWorks allows virtually “hands free” production of concept models, precision prototypes, and tooling patterns and masters. The WaterWorks solution dissolves the support material, leaving a clean model with smooth surfaces.
