PR CATI Connex Eden

Buffalo Grove, IL – March 1, 2010 – Computer Aided Technology, top SOLIDWORKS Reseller, will begin to distribute Objet Connex and Eden 3D Printers beginning March 1, 2010. This new initiative marks the growth of CATI’s already established distribution of the Objet Alaris30 3D printer.

Frank Marangell, President of Objet US said, “The tremendous success we’ve garnered for the Alaris30 by selling this line through CATI highlights the sales horsepower they bring to the table.  It became clear to Objet that teaming with CATI for distribution of the Connex and Eden Families is a win-win-win for Objet, CATI and our customers due to better coverage, enhanced economies of scale and scope while delivering the maximum added value to our customers.

“Our customers are always seeking our counsel on ways to improve their time to market and other intelligent ways to gain the critical competitive edge they always strive for,” explained Tom Humrickhouse, Vice President of Digital Prototyping at CATI.

“The capabilities of the Connex go unmatched by any other technology in the market and the proven reliability and flexibility of the Eden Family of 3D Printers has set the bar high for this industry.  Teaming with Objet Geometries for the Connex and Eden Families enables us to help our customers create better designs while bringing their products to market faster.”

The Objet Eden family of 3D Printers offers an unprecedented return on investment for professional rapid prototyping applications. Like the Objet Alaris30, the Eden 3D Printer also uses Objet’s breakthrough PolyJet technology enabling both time to market and product development cycles to decrease.

The Connex family of printers allows for simultaneous jetting of multiple model materials. Unlike other 3D Printers on the market, the Connex printer can print parts and assemblies made of multiple materials in a single build. This allows for extremely accurate simulation of end-products.

CATI will continue to distribute and support the Alaris30 3D Printer. To learn more about all of our 3D printer services, visit our website at:
