Prism Engineering Offers the Fortus 250mc Cross-Over 3D Printer

Prism Engineering, a leading Dimension Reseller servicing
the US Mid-Atlantic States, is proud to announce the addition of the Fortus
250mc cross-over 3D printer to the Prism product line


Philadelphia, PA, July 15, 2011: Prism is pleased to
offer the new Fortus 250mc™ Production 3D Printer – a rapid prototyping and
production machine designed to give users the convenience of a Dimension 3D
Printer with the flexibility of a Fortus Production 3D Printer.

Fortus 250mc, Stratsys’
first cross-over system, combines the ease-of-use and affordability of
Stratasys’ industry-leading Dimension
3D Printers with the control of Insight Software, used to drive the Fortus
line of production 3D printers. With Insight, users will have added control of
build speed, part accuracy, and feature detail. Like all Stratasys additive
manufacturing systems, the Fortus 250mc is based on the Fused
Deposition Modeling (FDM®) process

“The engineers interested in this new product will likely be
traditional 3D printer candidates, but who want more sophisticated
build-parameter control.” says Product Manager Mary Stanley. “Users are moving
beyond prototyping into production with their additive manufacturing machines.
The most common manufacturing application is to build functioning
manufacturing tools
, like jigs and fixtures to be used in the production

The Fortus 250mc has a 10 x 10 x 12 in. (254 x 254 x 305 mm)
build envelope and offers three build layer options: 0.007, 0.010 and 0.013 in.
(0.178, 0.254 and 0.330 mm). To create parts, the machine uses ABSplus
thermoplastic, which offers excellent mechanical proprieties, including impact
strength, tensile strength, flexural strength, and bonding strength for tough,
functional applications. ABSplus comes in ivory, white, blue, fluorescent
yellow, black, red, nectarine, olive green, and gray colors.

The Fortus 250mc uses Stratasys SR-30 soluble support
material, which has a faster dissolve time than other soluble support
materials. The Fortus 250mc is supported by a 12-month warranty and is now
available for shipment.
