Direct Digital Manufacturing

Take designs from virtual to real in hours, not weeks. From functional prototypes with exacting tolerances, to manufacturing tools that perform under pressure, the Fortus 380mc and 450mc 3D production systems set a high bar for speed, performance and accuracy.

The competitive advantages of additive manufacturing are continuously reinforced by a growing list of supported engineering and high-performance thermoplastics.

High-Performance FDM Systems

The 380mc and 450mcStratasys Fortus 380mc and 450mc 3D printers 3D production systems let you build, accurate, repeatable parts faster than ever before. Produce jigs, fixtures, factory tooling and production parts, as well as functional prototypes to withstand stringent testing. With four layer thicknesses to choose from, you can strike the right balance between strength, detail, and FDM’s fastest build time.

For maximum time savings, Fortus 380mc and 450mc build complex parts faster than their predecessors. Both feature an all-new touchscreen interface for straightforward operation and maintenance.

Fortus 380mc

Build parts as large as 355 x 305 x 305 mm (14 x 12 x 12 in.) significantly faster than the Fortus 360mc, especially for complex geometries. The Fortus 380mc offers the same fast build time as the 400mc, and works with seven standard and engineering thermoplastics.

Fortus 450mc

Build parts as large as 406 x 355 x 406 mm (16 x 14 x 16 in.). The Fortus 450mc works with 9 standard, engineering and high-performance thermoplastics.

Both systems work with these production-grade thermoplastics:

ABS-M30 in six colors for great tensile, impact and flexural strength

ABS-M30i for biocompatibility

ABS-ESD7 for static dissipation

ASA for UV stability and the best aesthetics

PC-ISO for biocompatibility and superior strength

PC for superior mechanical properties and heat resistance

FDM Nylon 12 for maximum toughness

The Fortus 450mc also works with ULTEM 9085 for high strength-to-weight ratio and favorable FST rating. ULTEM 1010 compatibility is coming in 2015.

Build envelope options:
Fortus 380mc: 355 x 305 x 305 mm (14 x 12 x 12 in.)
Fortus 450mc: 406 x 355 x 406 mm (16 x 14 x 16 in.)

Material delivery options:
Fortus 380mc: One bay each for material and support canisters
Fortus 450mc: Two bays each for material and support canisters

For maximum material capacity on the Fortus 450mc, Xtend 500 Fortus Plus material boxes are available for ABS-M30 (ivory and black), PC (polycarbonate) and their support materials. Each box contains 500 cubic inches (8194 cubic centimeters) of thermoplastic, so the 450mc can run nonstop for over two weeks without changing material.

0.254 mm (0.010 in.)
0.178 mm (0.007 in.)
0.127 mm (0.005 in.)

Support structure:
Soluble for most materials; break-away for PC-ISO and ULTEM; soluble or break-away for PC

System size/weight:
129.5 x 90.2 x 198.4 mm (51 x 35.5 x 78.1 in.)/with crate: 680 kg (1,500 lbs.), without crate: 601 kg (1,325 lbs.)

Achievable accuracy:
Parts are produced within an accuracy of ± .127 mm (± .005 in.) or ± .0015 mm/mm (± .0015 in/in), whichever is greater. (Accuracy is geometry dependent. Achievable accuracy specification derived from statistical data at 95% dimensional yield.)

Special facility requirements:

Insight Software lets you print directly from your favorite CAD formats, eliminating the STL conversion and adjusting you used to do before printing. Optimize your productions with advanced control options that automatically adjust support structures and material extrusion paths, while giving you the ability to pause production in order to change materials or embed hardware or circuitry. Control Center lets you seamlessly share project information between users, creating a more streamlined, efficient workflow.

  • All Fortus systems include Insight and Control Center job processing and management software.
  • Compatible with GrabCAD Print for use with job reports, scheduling and remote monitoring.
