Connex3 was the first 3D printer in the world to simultaneously 3D print multiple colors and materials. Today it remains alone in its class with a broader set of capabilities that amplify its advantages. Bring agility and aesthetics to every stage of product development and production. Based on PolyJet Technology, Connex3 offers amazing surface smoothness, fine details and the widest range of material properties available in a 3D printer.
A Multitude of Materials
For parts that require a range of mechanical, optical or thermal properties – like non-slip grips, transparent windows, flexible hinges or heat-resistant surfaces – Connex3 can vary material properties within a single print job.
Fast, Flexible Color
Stratasys Creative Colors Software, powered by Adobe 3D Color Print Engine, blends new color capabilities with a hassle-free workflow. Produce smooth three-color gradients and vivid multi-color textures based on the color information in your original CAD file, and/or graphic elements added right in Adobe Photoshop. The software recommends the closest visual match, and provides realistic previews to eliminate the guesswork.
Detail and Realism
Create precise threading or crisp tracking codes directly from CAD. With 16-micron layer resolution, you can see, touch, test and perfect every detail.
With a spacious build envelope and the ability to vary materials within a single print job, you can pack a tray with assorted parts to power through tool and prototype production.
Spend less time processing parts. PolyJet models are smooth, beautiful and ready to handle without additional curing or post-processing. Soluble support material lets you clean undercuts and internal voids with minimal effort.
High throughput and an efficient workflow optimize your productivity, so Connex3 achieves a low cost of ownership per part.
Digital ABS in the Mix:
For tough, ergonomic tooling, only the Objet500 Connex3 lets you blend the strongest PolyJet photopolymer, Digital ABS, with Rubber-like Material to produce a range of Shore A values with great durability.
This material is ideal for tooling and fixtures that require higher heat. Blend with Rubber-like material to achieve a range of Shore A values and thermal properties.
Medical materials offer excellent visualization and great dimensional stability for dental delivery trays, surgical orthopedic guides and hearing aids.
With a range of bright and subtle colors, opacities and elastomer characteristics, this adaptable material is ideal for a variety of tools and prototypes.
Tough single-material options withstand the stress of living hinges, flexible closures and snap-fit parts. Combine with Rubber-like material for a range of grayscale shades and Shore A hardness values.
