Stop Outsourcing and Start Building
The Fortus 250mc works with the same powerful Insight software as our Performance 3D Production Systems. Insight software gives you the power to optimize every part for strength, print time or aesthetics. You can specify tool paths, adjust material density, fine-tune part orientation and choose from three available layer resolutions. Best of all, the 250mc’s ABSplus parts are accurate, stable, durable and repeatable.
Insight software prepares your CAD program’s STL output for 3D manufacturing on a Fortus machine by automatically slicing and generating support structures and material extrusion paths. For maximum control, users can manually edit parameters that 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.
The Fortus 250mc builds models in production-grade ABSplus thermoplastic, which offers nine color choices. This lets your prototypes faithfully resemble finished products in look and durability. The Fortus 250mc uses soluble support structures for easy, hands-free removal — even for parts with complex geometry and twisted cavities.
