PolyJet Materials – Photopolymers
3D print precision prototypes in over 100 materials PolyJet technology 3D prints in the widest variety of materials, so you can create realistic prototypes that closely resemble finished products. Models are precisely printed in layers as fine as 16 microns for smooth surfaces and complex geometries. Material properties range from rubber to rigid, transparent to opaque, and standard to biocompatible.
With dual material jetting, Objet Connex 3D Printers provide the unique ability to fabricate Digital Materials — composite materials with predetermined mechanical properties. Digital Materials are made right in the 3D printer, when two standard PolyJet photopolymers are combined in specific concentrations and structures to provide the desired mechanical and visual properties.
Each of the 100-plus Digital Materials is based on various combinations of the 17 primary PolyJet photopolymers. A single prototype can contain as many as 14 distinct material properties, all created in one build process. You can simulate products made of elastomers and rubber by creating Digital Materials with a full Shore scale A range including: Shore 27, 40, 50, 60, 70, 85 and 95. With Digital Materials, you can also simulate standard plastics such as engineering-grade ABS.
Digital ABS (fabricated inside the 3D printer from RGD515 and RGD535) is designed to simulate standard ABS plastics by combining high-temperature resistance with toughness. Digital ABS2 delivers those properties plus superior rigidity and toughness in walls thinner than 1.2 mm (.047 in.). Both materials are suitable for parts that require PolyJet technology’s highest possible impact resistance and shock absorption.
Digital ABS and Digital ABS2 are ideal for:
- Functional prototypes
- Snap-fit parts for high or low temperature use
- Electrical parts, casings, mobile phone casings
- Engine parts and covers
High Temperature material (RGD525, white) combines heat resistance with exceptional dimensional stability. The material can simulate the thermal performance of engineering plastics and is ideal for testing applications such as hot-air flow or hot-water flow in pipes and faucets. Objet High Temperature material has a heat deflection temperature of 63–67 C (145-153 F) upon removal from the printer. Thermal post treatment in a programmable oven can increase this to 75-80 C (167-176 F).
Simulate High Temperature Parts With Improved Functional Performance
Combining High Temperature material with Rubber-like materials produces varying Shore A values, gray shades and rigid functional materials with higher temperature resistance. The composite also enables printing high-temperature parts with over-molding.
Wide Range of Applications
- High Temperature PolyJet photopolymer is useful for many applications including:
- Form, fit and thermal functional testing of static parts
- High-definition parts requiring excellent surface quality
- Exhibition modeling under strong lighting conditions
- Post-processing including painting, gluing or metallization processes
- Models in transit Taps, pipes and household appliances
- Hot air and hot water testing.

Wide Range of Applications
Transparent materials are ideal for applications including: Form and fit testing of clear or see-through parts Glass, eyewear, lighting covers and light-cases Visualization of liquid flow Color dying Medical applications Artistic and exhibition modeling
3D print detailed models with vibrant color Combining dimensional stability and fine detail, Rigid Opaque materials simulate the appearance of production parts. And with the Objet500 Connex3, Rigid Opaque materials come in brilliant colors, from jet black to sunny yellow to shocking magenta, along with hundreds of blended hues.
Rigid Opaque photopolymers provide excellent detail visualization in gray, black, white and blue. You can 3D print accurate, attractive prototypes that test fit, form and function, even for moving and assembled parts. The blue shade is ideal for silicon molding.
For the Objet30 Pro, all Objet Eden 3D Printers and Objet Connex 3D Printers, the Rigid Opaque Vero family includes:
- Rigid Opaque white material (VeroWhitePlus RGD835)
- Rigid Opaque gray material (VeroGray RGD850)
- Rigid Opaque blue material (VeroBlue RGD840)
- Rigid Opaque black material (VeroBlackPlus RGD875)
With Objet Connex 3D Printers, you can use Digital Materials to simulate a variety of shades by combining Rigid Opaque white (VeroWhitePlus) and Rubber-like black (TangoBlackPlus) materials.
