Rapid Prototyping Machines 

Fortus 400mc Thermoplastic Rapid Prototyping

The Fortus 400mc is a rapid prototyping machine for creating real, usable parts at a fraction of the cost of traditional prototyping:

  • Build chamber: 16”x14”x16”
  • Four possible build materials: ABSM30, ABS-ESD7, Poly Carbonate, and Ultem 9085
  • Layer thickness from 0.005 inch up to 0.013 inch – depending on material
  • Build accuracy of +/- 0.005 inch
