Enhanced, Superior Additive Manufacturing Systems

The newly incorporated touchscreen interface on both Fortus 450mc enhances system operation and maintenance to bring added value to its users.

Fortus 450mc

In comparison to Fortus 380mc, the Fortus 450mc builds parts as large as 406 x 355 x 406 mm (16 x 14 x 16 in.) and works with 9 standard, engineering and high-performance thermoplastics to achieve accurate, larger repeatable parts at increased speed with increased material options. Fortus 450mc also provide the option to choose between four layers of thicknesses that allow end-user to achieve the right balance between strength, detail and speed required.

Insight Software

Monitor Displaying CAD rendering of 3D Printed Part

Insight software organizes your 3D CAD program’s STL output for 3D manufacturing on a Fortus machine by doing automated slicing, generating support structures and creating material extrusion paths. For maximum control, users can manually edit parameters to determine the look, strength and precision of parts as well as the speed and material use of the FDM process.

With Insight, you can:

  • Optimize build orientation for maximum strength and smoothest surface finish
  • Customize supports for fast, easy removal and best use of materials
  • Program pauses into the build for any reason, such as to embed hardware or circuitry
  • Manipulate tool paths for advanced control over part properties
  • Included with Insight is Control Center. This sophisticated software application communicates with user workstations and Fortus systems, to manage jobs and monitor production status. Design, engineering and manufacturing teams can network and share 3D manufacturing capacity to maximize efficiency and throughput.
