Stratasys has created what iReviews considers the most versatile 3D printer on the market in its price range, for a price of 19,800 dollars. The Stratasys Objet Eden260V is the ultimate entry point into the world of mid-sized, high-quality precision prototyping. The 260 x 260 x 200 mm (10.24 × 10.24 × 7.9 in.) tray size and peaceful, flawless process make the Objet Eden260V fitting for the office environment. The software it uses is STL and it offers many features, including network version, PolyLog materials management, slice on the fly, automatic real time support structure generation, Optimax printing optimization package, suggested build orientation and speed, and auto placement.
The Objet Eden 260V allows printing with a wide range of materials. To reach dimensional stability and provide smooth surfaces, it uses transparent materials for standard plastic simulation. Rigid opaque material comes in a variety of colors and the polypropylene like material has snap fit applications. There is also a family of rubber like materials that are ideal for a range of applications requiring non slip or soft surfaces. High temperature material is for advanced functional testing, hot air and water flow, static applications and exhibition modeling.
The Eden260V also offers a multitude of benefits other 3D printers available fail to offer. With fine details and fabulous software features, horizontal layers of 16 microns and thin walls down to 0.6mm, this 3D printing system is accomplished in being able to provide high quality detail that only the best 3D printers on the market can provide. The Eden260V also eliminates post-building and finishing processes during 3D printing. It is equipped with 1 head and a layer thickness of 0.016.
With new applications being discovered every day, the Eden260V 3D Printer still remains in-tune with its core strengths and benefits. It has outstanding surface finishes with high resolution on fine details, high resolution in all axes, and builds any geometry in a quick, clean and precise manner. It is also ideal for office and dental environments. Its low cost materials make it affordable. It successfully delivers smooth interior and exterior surfaces, including cavities. You can also cancel out the post-build processing and finishing stages during the 3D printing process, which adds to its versatility.
The Eden260V uses cutting edge proven PolyJet technology that provides a comparatively shorter product development cycle, as well as an innate and high quality solution for all of your printing needs. It offers a high resolution in all axes. PolyJet 3D printing is much like inkjet printing except that instead of dropping ink onto a paper, it jets layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray using UV light to cure them. The layers then build up one at a time to create a prototype. These fully cured models are able to be handled instantly without additional post curing. This PolyJet technology is the perfect solution to exact prototyping needs and it sets the standard for finished product realism. As a matter of fact, the Eden260V sets an entirely new standard by using this innovative technology.
With no plausible difference in print speed, the Eden260V 3D printer lets you decide between a high quality printing mode and a high speed printing mode. These two modes give you the flexible time and quality you need to meet your printing requirements. Printing on the Eden260V is as easy as 1, 2, and 3. You simply prepare your file, print your model, and remove supports.
Unlike most 3D printers available, the Eden260V boasts a compact footprint, as well an exterior design that is both lustrous and practicable. The printer can support up to four 3.6 kg cartridges of material, which allows unmanned operation for long periods. The Eden260V can run for at least 72 hours of continuous unattended printing, so if you want to run printing production seven days a week to boost productivity, you do not need to hire additional operators.
Stratasys is a world leader in 3D printing. The Objet Eden260V is one of their many 3D printers, from their Idea Series to Design Series to Production Series to Dental Series. Stratasys offers a wide range of help and support options to get you printing and keep you printing successfully. The company offers email support, telephone support, live chat, a forum and knowledgebase, tutorials and FAQs. The Eden260V allows you to connect with a USB or Ethernet connection.
Overall, this printer is remarkable and innovative in the sense that it offers unprecedented return on investment for a wide range of professional rapid prototyping applications. The Objet Eden260V is the ideal copier-size 3D printer for your office. It is capable of producing a massive variety of economical prototypes with its 3 dimensional printing system that compresses your product design to manufacturing cycle. It is a chosen must have in the field of dentistry and medicine, and we urge you to find out for yourself what makes this 3D printer so special, unique and perfect for the design you wish to manufacture. It is for these reasons that the Stratasys Objet Eden260V has been chosen as one of the iReviews top picks for 2015 best 3D printers over $5,000.

Your pricing on the Eden 260 is incorrect.
An Eden 260v currently is $85,000.
