PolyJet printing process is one of the additive manufacturing methods to print parts with high dimensional accuracy. To date, dimensional accuracies of such process have been investigated by a number of studies. This review will summarize those studies, and identify current trends. With respect to methods of measurements used in the reported studies, it is noted that no special preference is given to use of any method. In addition, the effects of four control variables of PolyJet process: part orientation, layer thickness, surface finish type and materials, on dimensional accuracy are noted based on the results of reported studies. There is consistency in results in studies considering control variables of layer thickness, surface finish type and materials. However, the results are inconsistent in studies considering part orientation.
