Solidscape Review

By Business.com Editorial StaffLast Modified: December 14, 2017

The Solidscape Max2 is one of the best industrial 3D printers for medical research, dental, jewelry and manufacturing sectors. This wax 3D printer doesn’t actually print use-end parts, it will print a wax pattern that you can use to cast in a different material to create a part.

The main feature of this large-scale 3D printer is the highly precise accuracy. Since it creates molds for other materials, the casts that the Solidscape Max2 creates are extremely intricate and accurate so as to not pass along defects to the finished product. You can customize the thickness with this machine between 0.02 and 0.05 mm, which is excellent for this type of 3D printer. With the Solidscape Max2, you can print casts up to 6 x 6 x 4 inches, which is a bit on the small side for industrial printers.

Since the wax material the Solidscape Max2 uses is so durable, you can print detailed prints. Some of the materials you can cast with this industrial 3D printer include metal, bronze, brass, silver and aluminum.

For a professional 3D printer, the Solidscape Max2 is smaller than many of its competitors. Its design is only 22 x 18 x 16 inches and it weighs 75 pounds. Overall, this automatically calibrated machine is simple to use and even includes a touchscreen for easy navigation and control over your prints.

Stratasys provides customer support for this Solidscape printer. You can call or you can email technical support representatives from the customer service tab on its website. Although there are no model-specific FAQs, you can still find software help, material help and case studies.

Included with the professional 3D printer price, you'll also receive the Solidscape 3D software to generate model supports, see the animated CAD file and see problems before you print. The software and the printer are only compatible with Windows operating systems.

If you're looking to create intricate metal or ceramic designs without 3D printing them, the Solidscape Max2 is a great solution. By casting precise models and patterns, you'll end up with accurate use-end products.
