Objet Breaks the 100 Material Barrier
Todd Grimm posted on June 22, 2012 |

Objet - printed, multi-material keyboardObjet Ltd. has announced 39 new 'Digital Materials' for its Objet Connex range of multi-material 3D printing systems. This development places Objet customers at the forefront: Customers can now select from 107 materials ranging from rigid to rubber-like and transparent to opaque.

 

Nintey of the materials are Digital Materials derived by the composite mixing of Objet materials during the build process. This enables designers, engineers and manufacturers to simulate very precise material properties to closely resemble their intended end product. The use of the Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer allows users to also combine up to 14 of these materials in a single model.

According to David Reis, CEO for Objet, "With 39 new Digital Materials, Objet has become the first 3D printing company to break the 100 materials barrier. Considering that we had half this number just a few short years ago, this growth in material choice confirms our commitment to consistently deliver new and enhanced material properties to our customers," explains Reis. These new materials will be used by design and manufacturing companies in virtually every industry segment and in every stage of their product prototyping process from form modeling to fit testing and functional verification.

The company has also launched two new material enhancements. It now offers an improved Objet Rigid Black material (Objet VeroBlackPlus) that provides increased dimensional stability and surface smoothness for all-purpose rapid prototyping applications. Objet's 2011-released High Temperature material, offering high thermal functionality of engineering plastics, will be available on all Objet Connex and Objet EdenV 3D Printers and the new Objet30 Pro Desktop 3D Printer.
