Stratasys Objet500 Connex3 Multi-Material Printer [SLIDESHOW]

Jan. 30, 2014

The Connex3 has a triple-jet dispenser that combines droplets of three base materials to produce parts from materials of varied rigidity and transparency in an enormous array of vivid colors.

The result is the most versatile, true-to-life results achieved on a 3-D printer yet.

The printer is being marketed for two applications in particular: making high-quality product prototypes and "bridge" manufacturing. Bridge manufacturing is medium-quantity manufacturing of products to supply the market with a product while the main facility to produce said product (say, in China) gets up and running.
