Objet Ltd has launched the new Objet30 Pro – a versatile, professional 3D printer that offers seven materials – at RAPID (Atlanta, Georgia). According to the company, this is the first desktop system to use clear and high temperature materials.

"The Objet30 Pro is the next evolution in desktop 3D printers developed specifically for professional users," said David Reis, CEO of Objet. “This desktop 3D printer provides outstanding print quality with a choice of seven materials that until now could only be found in much larger, high-end 3D printers. The Objet30 Pro is the perfect combination of professional, versatile in-house 3D printing at an attractive price point," concluded Reis.

The materials offered on this system include Objet Clear Transparent, High Temperature, DurusWhite, VeroBlack, VeroWhite, VeroGray and VeroBlue. The latter five are also available on the Objet30. Both systems also share the same build envelope (11.8 x 7.9 x 5.9 inch), layer thickness (0.0011 inch) and resolution (600 x 600 dpi).

Adam Smith, technical manager at Collcap, a packaging company, comments, “We knew a desktop machine would meet our capacity requirements quite happily, but for the packaging work we do, we really wanted the range of materials that has previously only been available with bigger machines. The clear transparent material for instance is ideal for prototyping our bespoke fragrance bottles and other glass or clear plastic products, whilst the range of colored rigid materials work perfectly for simulating plastic bottles, caps and fittings."

The expanded material capabilities of the Objet30 Pro are available as an upgrade for existing Objet30 or Objet Alaris30 desktop 3D printer customers.
