Preview the New PolyJet Model Settings Panel
If you have PolyJet printers, you can try out the new model settings panel, which has improved design and the ability to save favorites. Go to File > Preferences > PolyJet and select the checkbox to use the new PolyJet Model Settings panel.
VeroUltraClear is Now Available for J750 and J735
The new VeroUltraClear material, introduced for the J850 and J835 in 1.36, is now available on the J750 and J735. VeroUltraClear simulates acrylic, achieving 95% light transmission of that material, and is useful for prototypes of glass, clear polymers, or transparent packaging.

PolyJet Override VRML/OBJ Parts
You can override VRML/OBJ parts with a new color and material assignment from the Model Settings panel, and restore back to original if necessary, with a new right-click menu option on the selected VRML/OBJ bodies.
Diran 410MF07 Updates
The infill patterns for Diran 410MF07 on Advanced FDM now include single dense, double dense, and sparse. Additionally, the first layer material can now be changed from support to model material to improve tray adhesion.
Heads Up and Reminders

- PolyJet – VRML/OBJ Structure Preference: The default state of the VRML/OBJ structure preference has been changed from off to on.
