Stratasys unveiled a new agreement with Pantone – a leading global authority of professional color standards in multiple vertical industries. Under terms of the agreement, Stratasys becomes the first 3D printing solutions provider with technology officially designated as PANTONE Validated – reflecting the qualification and approval to simulate Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors on printed objects.
Both Stratasys J750 and J735 PolyJet 3D Printers are endorsed by Pantone as meeting the PANTONE Validated standards of color quality and realism. Backed by this substantiation, these printers are aligned to meet the stringent requirements of design studios as they synchronize the design-to-manufacturing process. The agreement allows for simple and accurate color communication between designers, modelers and manufacturers – with easy “choose-and-print” color matching to Pantone identities.
The validation enables Stratasys to offer thousands of printable and globally recognized Pantone Colors, ensuring all contributors to the design process speak the same language, potentially reducing iterations, shrink design cost, and speed time-to-revenue.
It’s anticipated that Stratasys customers can access Pantone functionality directly within the GrabCAD Print environment by July 2019 – assigning and applying colors to 3D printed models by browsing the relevant Pantone book.
In industries ranging from consumer packaged goods to home products, Stratasys customers can now tackle design challenges with the expertise of Pantone.
Stratasys is exclusively unveiling this agreement with Pantone at this week’s Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) Conference 2019 in Chicago, IL. Visit Stratasys at Booth No. D17 in Salon D of the Hilton Chicago.
