StrataSys 3D printers are a choice of rapid prototyping machines ranging from desktop to factory models, from the affordable and easy to use Mojo to a full-scale Fortus production system. All 3D printers that the StrataSys company offers share one technology and are limited to thermoplastic – but that doesn’t make them inferior. In fact, the StrataSys 3D printer company offers a selection of great models suitable for almost every kind of business.
How do StrataSys 3D Printers Work?
StrataSys printers all use Fuse Deposition Modeling technology – FDM, in short. FDM technology belongs to the extrusion family of processes – currently most-widely used solution. The process offers a lot of advantages – it produces durable parts, it’s office-friendly and clean, it doesn’t need special facilities and on top of that, it’s quite cheap. Resolution and surface finish may suffer, but that still allows StrataSys printers to be a great choice for creation of functional parts, prototypes and production parts – see how it prints a wrench (sped-up).
The StrataSys Mojo 3D printer is the smallest, simplest printer StrataSys offers. It costs about $9,900, and its specs reflect that.

The StrataSys Mojo is cheap, reliable, easy to use and small. The material lets you print parts suited for functional testing.
The printer is nothing amazing – layer resolution, build volume and speed are sub-par, but hey, at least it prints!
The Bottom Line:
You get what you pay for. Consider this printer if you don’t need a better solution.
