Objet 350/500 Connex2 3D Production Systems

3D Print Tooling, Jigs and Fixtures With Digital Materials

Leap over product hurdles from prototyping to production. Connex2 systems offer precise multi-material printing with Digital Materials for smooth, accurate parts that meet your precise blend of material requirements.

Custom Tooling in Hours, Not Days

Connex2 systems help you avoid stumbling blocks like machine-shop backlogs and high fabrication costs. With triple-jetting technology, 140 Digital Materials and two spacious build-tray options, you get the space and material variety to unleash productivity. 3D print jigs, fixtures, injection molds, silicone molds and sandcasting patterns in-house for next-day use. In one print job, you can combine tough Digital ABS with a base material, like TangoBlack, to produce tools with non-slip surfaces or soft-touch coatings.

For tools or prototypes that require a range of mechanical, optical or thermal properties, you can combine pairs of base resins in preset configurations to render up to 27 distinct material properties in one part. Create transparent gauges, ergonomic non-slip grips, and fixtures that require a range of Shore A values or precision threading. Render words and numbers clearly directly on the part, straight from the CAD file, for reliable tracking.

No matter what you’re building, Connex2 offers ample material capacity and hot-swapping capability (the option to replace an empty material canister while another canister of the same material is in use). So you can spend more time perfecting production and less time patrolling your 3D printer.

140 two-component Digital Material options
14 base material options
Up to 27 material properties in a single build

Objet Studio Software

Objet Studio makes it simple to build high-quality, accurate 3D models. It automatically transforms STL files from any 3D CAD application into 3D modeling slices including both build material and support. With click-and-build wizards, you can quickly edit trays, assign materials and colors, manage job queues and perform routine system maintenance.

Objet Studio features:

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

More Than 140 Material Options

Base materials include:
Transparent materials with great dimensional stability and surface smoothness
Rubber-like materials (Tango family) suitable for non-slip surfaces or simulated overmolding
Rigid Opaque materials (Vero family) in white, gray, blue and black
Simulated Polypropylene materials with toughness and durability to create living hinges, flexible closures and snap-fit prototypes
Composite Digital Materials include:
Digital ABS and Digital ABS2 to simulate the heat resistance and toughness of standard ABS plastic
High Temperature materials in varying shades and hardnesses
Rigid Opaque and Transparent materials in shades of blue and gray
Rubber-like materials with varying shades, translucencies and elastomer characteristics
Simulated polypropylene with varying grayscale shades and Shore A hardness values.
