Objet260 Connex3

Compact Color Multi-Material 3D Printer

From industries such as consumer electronics requiring toughness, colour and soft-touch parts, to manufactured parts in automotive combining Digital ABS with rubber-like material, Connex3 technology offers the complete range of PolyJet materials for colour and maximum versatility in material properties for ultimate final-product aesthetics.

Key Features

Multi-Material Printing

Up to 82 materials can appear in one prototype with no assembly, all in a selection of diverse models all built in one job.

Over 1000 Material Options

Combine two or three materials in specific concentrations and microstructures, you can produce a range of Digital Materials with varying translucency, rigidity, thermal resistance or colour.

Amazing Colors

Pick from 20 palettes — including rich, vivid opaque and stained-glass-like translucent

A Multitude of Materials

The same triple-jetting technology that makes three-color mixing possible vastly expands your range of material combinations and properties. Combining two or three materials in specific concentrations and microstructures, you can produce a range of Digital Materials with varying translucency, rigidity, thermal resistance or color. You can even produce functionally graded materials.

Flexible colour:
When you combine three materials from the Rubber and Rigid Opaque families, you can produce prototypes with a range of Shore A values in a wide range of colors from deep dark to fluorescent, and even translucent.

Digital ABS in the Mix:
For outstanding durability and a range of Shore A values, you can combine durable, two-component Digital ABS material with Rubber material.

Simulated Polypropylene:
Tough single-material options withstand the stress of living hinges, flexible closures and snap-fit parts.

High Temperature:
This heat-resistant material is ideal for thermal testing of static parts. Combine with Rubber material to achieve a range of material properties.

Bio-compatible:
Medical rapid prototyping materials offer excellent detail visualization and dimensional stability for dental delivery trays, surgical orthopedic guides and hearing aids.

Rubber:
With a range of bright and subtle colors, opacities and elastomer characteristics, this adaptable material is ideal for modeling a wide variety of products from soft grip handles to footwear.
