Objet 350 & 500 Connex 3

Color and multi-material 3D printing

Connex3 was the first 3D printer in the world to simultaneously 3D print multiple colors and materials. Today it remains alone in its class with a broader set of capabilities that amplify its advantages.

Connex3 was the first 3D printer in the world to simultaneously 3D print multiple colors and materials. Today it remains alone in its class with a broader set of capabilities that amplify its advantages.

Variety and versatility

Bring agility and aesthetics to every stage of product development and production. Based on PolyJet Technology, Connex3 offers amazing surface smoothness, fine details and a wide range of material properties.

Multiple materials

For parts that require a range of mechanical, optical or thermal properties – like non-slip grips, transparent windows, flexible hinges or heat–resistant surfaces – Connex3 can vary material properties within a single print job.

Fast, flexible color

Stratasys Creative Colors Software, powered by Adobe 3D Color Print Engine, blends new color capabilities with a hassle-free workflow. Produce smooth three-color gradients and vivid multi-color textures based on the color information in your original CAD file, and/or graphic elements added right in Adobe Photoshop. The software recommends the closest visual match, and provides realistic previews to eliminate the guesswork.

Materials

Connex3’s versatility stems from its ability to blend up to three materials right on the build tray, to yield hundreds of colors, translucencies and durometers.

Digital ABS in the Mix:

For tough, ergonomic tooling, the Objet500 Connex3 lets you blend the strongest PolyJet photopolymer, Digital ABS, with Rubber-like Material to produce a range of Shore A values with great durability.

High Temperature:

This material is ideal for tooling and fixtures that require higher heat. Blend with Rubber-like material to achieve a range of Shore A values and thermal properties.

Bio-compatible:

Medical materials offer excellent visualization and great dimensional stability for dental delivery trays, surgical orthopedic guides and hearing aids.

Rubber-like:

With a range of bright and subtle colors, opacities and elastomer characteristics, this adaptable material is ideal for a variety of tools and prototypes.

Simulated Polypropylene:

Tough single-material options withstand the stress of living hinges, flexible closures and snap-fit parts. Combine with Rubber-like material for a range of grayscale shades and Shore A hardness values.

Objet Studio Software

Objet Studio makes it simple to build high-quality, accurate tooling and prototypes. It transforms STL or WRL files from any 3D CAD application into print-ready 3D models with color, material, and support placement information. With click-and-build wizards, you can quickly edit trays, change materials and colors, manage job queues and perform routine system maintenance.

Objet Studio features:

  • Easy tray setup including multiple models and materials
  • VRML support for easy color assignment
  • Automatic support generation
  • On-the-fly slicing so printing can start right away
  • Auto-placement of trays for accurate, consistent positioning
  • Multi-user networking
