Fortus 380 and 450 3D Printers


For rugged prototypes that function like your end product, manufacturing tools that deliver under pressure, and production parts built on-demand, Fortus 380mc and 450mc 3D Printers set a high bar for speed, performance and accuracy.

Speed and efficiency
Produce complex, high-requirement parts faster than ever. Plus, get up to two weeks of unattended build time with high-capacity material options available on the 450mc.

Flexibility and control
Embed hardware or circuitry, fine-tune part performance, optimize build speed or achieve a smoother finish. Custom tool paths and other advanced features of Insight software give you ultimate control over your build parameters.

No special facility requirements
Install Fortus Systems virtually anywhere.  No special venting is required because Fortus systems produce no noxious fumes, chemicals or waste with most materials.

Easy to operate and maintain
Quickly teach anyone how to load materials, replace build trays and use the simple touch-screen interface. Operation is intuitive and requires no special skills.

These materials work with both Fortus 3D Production Systems:

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
These materials work with Fortus 450mc:

ULTEM 1010 for the highest heat resistance, chemical resistance and tensile strength of any FDM thermoplastic
ULTEM 9085 for best mix of mechanical, chemical and thermal properties

Fortus 380mc and 450mc:

PC-ISO in white and translucent
FDM Nylon 12
Fortus 450mc only:

ULTEM 9085 resin
ULTEM 1010 resin
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.

Layer thicknesses:
0.330 mm (0.013 in.)
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 cm (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.)

Workstation Compatibility:
Microsoft Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 (Pro, Enterprise), Microsoft Windows 7 (Pro, Enterprise, Ultimate), Microsoft Windows Vista (Business, Enterprise, Ultimate), Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Microsoft Windows Server 2003

Network communication:
10/100 base T connection; Ethernet protocol

Power requirements:
Fortus 380mc: 208VAC 3 phase, 50/60 Hz consumes 18 Amps
Fortus 450mc: 208VAC 3 phase, 50/60 Hz consumes 18 Amps

Regulatory compliance:
CE, TUV listed

Insight Software

Technical Training Aids offers the full line of Fortus 380mc and Fortus 450mc 3D printers
Technical Training Aids offers the full line of Fortus 380mc and Fortus 450mc 3D printers

Insight software prepares your CAD program’s STL output to be manufactured on a Fortus system by automatically slicing and generating support structures and material extrusion paths. For maximum control, users can manually edit parameters that determine the look, strength and precision of parts as well as the speed and material use of the FDM process.

With Insight, you can:

Optimize build orientation for maximum strength and smoothest surface finish
Customize supports for fast, easy removal and best use of materials
Program pauses into the build for any reason, such as to embed hardware or circuitry
Manipulate tool paths for advanced control over part properties
Included with Insight is Control Center. This sophisticated software application communicates with user workstations and Fortus systems, to manage jobs and monitor production status. Design, engineering and manufacturing teams can network and share 3D manufacturing capacity to maximize efficiency and throughput.
