Posted Jan 27, 2014

3D printer manufacturer Stratasys, Ltd. (NASDAQ:SSYS) has announced the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer, which is the first and only 3D printer that can combine colors with multi-material 3D printing. The Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer has triple-jetting technology that combines droplets of three base materials to produce parts of rigid, flexible, and transparent color materials along with color digital materials in a single print run.

?Stratasys? goal is to help our customers revolutionize their design and manufacturing processes,? stated Stratasys CEO David Reis. ?I believe our new Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer will transform the way our customers design, engineer and manufacture new products. In general and with the Connex technology in particular, we will continue to push the envelope of what?s possible in a 3D world.?

There are three color materials available to produce hundreds of vivid colors – VeroCyan, VeroMagenta, and VeroYellow. The Objet500 Connex3 also has six palettes for new rubber-like Tango colors that range from opaque to transparent.

The print jobs can run with around 30kg of resin per cycle. The printers print as fine as 16 micron layers for models with superior surface finishes and ultra-fine detail.
