Objet Connex 3D Printers

Build Precise Multi-Material Prototypes

Simulate the precise look, feel and function of sophisticated finished products. Combine as many as 14 material properties in a single model — and turn your most inspired ideas into realistic prototypes, fast. – See more at:

With Connex multi-material 3D printers, assembly is optional. Future products to be built or assembled from two or more materials can be realistically 3D printed in one fast process and critically evaluated early in the design cycle. Each Connex system offers 16-micron layer accuracy in a range of 140 materials, so you can capture every detail.

Dual-jetting technology lets you take advantage of Digital Materials produced by combining two base resins in specific concentrations and structures. Mimic the durability and heat resistance of ABS plastic, or test designs that require functionally graded materials. Digital Materials let you incorporate a range of hardnesses, opacities, shades or thermal properties into a single model for striking, true-to-life prototypes.
