The new Stratasys J850 Pro PolyJet 3D printer is the latest machine variation in their popular and expanding J-series. What makes this entry unique is that it has been designed specifically to verify concepts quickly and cheaply through its efficient workflow with a wide range of materials (which the series is known for) but not to print realistic color. For a range of certain engineering-specific modeling applications, the resulting lower price-point and absence of “nice-to-have” color options, makes the J850 Pro a very attractive option for those looking to achieve faster product verification, increase their throughput and save valuable time.
“We’ve seen the value to customers of our PolyJet 3D printers – in throughput, accuracy, reliability, and multi-material capabilities – and are excited to have the J850 Pro now bring that value to our engineering customers, at an attractive price,” said Shamir Shoham, Design Vice President at Stratasys.
J850 Pro: Built with Engineering in Mind
Created to help engineers speed through rapid prototyping, the J850 Pro is the perfect fit for any stage of product development, whether you need low-cost and fast models for concept validation, more durable prototypes for functional testing or highly accurate, multi-material models. High print resolution ensures smooth surfaces for parts and incredible accuracy, even for details like printed graphics and complex geometries.
The PolyJet Technology allows you to create hundreds of digital material mixes with just a few cartridges. Whereas the J850 Pro may not be using this technology to make thousands of colors, it still has a key set of materials that are key for any serious engineering validation:
- Concept in Grayscale – Produce low-cost concept models that rapidly advance
the first stages of the design process with DraftGrey material.
- Achieve Transparency – Use VeroUltraClear to 3D print translucent parts that
simulate glass, clear acrylic, for transparent thermoplastics, such as PMMA.
- Create Flexible Parts -Use the Agilus30 material family to create flexible parts
and prototypes that can flex, bend, elongate and seal.
- Test Functionality -Digital ABS Plus material provides the heat resistance and
durability you need to verify fit and functionality.
The J850 Pro offers all the accuracy, speed and material benefits for the Stratasys J8 series, but without the CMY color capabilities. If you’re not interested in the expansive color range that the J8 series can offer, you can take advantage of all these key capabilities at a much lower price point:
Print larger parts at a lower cost: The new J850 Pro keeps the same build volume as the traditional J850 (Prime) so there is no sacrifice in size for the lower price tag. Keep the high capacity and print large parts to fit your needs. Produce 3D concept models that rapidly advance the first stages of the design process at 80% lower cost than traditional methods of prototyping.
Make Faster Concept Decisions: Visualize and verify designs with a flexible in-house system for faster production, taking your product to market quicker. The large, seven-material capacity allows you to load your most-used resins and avoid downtime associated with material
Power Designs with Multiple Materials: Achieve hundreds of combinations of functional digital materials, including clear visualization, in a single print by leveraging PolyJet technology’s multi-material capabilities. From opaque to transparent and rigid to flexible; all minimal post-processing and no assembly.
Accuracy: With speed, accuracy, and repeatability, the J850 Pro
The J8 Series Line-Up
The J850 Pro was created using the same technology as the other members of the J8 series. However, there are some differences including print modes and build size that make these products different.

There is more good news for those wanting to be able to grow with their investment in PolyJet 3D printing. Stratasys has announced that there will be an upgrade path from the J850 Pro to the J850 Prime so that owners wanting to expand their in-house prototyping to include full-color realism will be able to do so after their initial purchase.
