Objet offers 100-plus 3D printing materials

Objet has expanded its range of 3D printing materials to over 100. The rapid prototyping specialist has announced 39 new 'Digital Materials' that will be available on its Objet Connex range of multi-material 3D printing systems.

Digital Materials are created by mixing 'primary' Objet materials, with around 90 of the 107 materials available being derived this way. Possible materials will range from rigid to rubber-like substances in terms of texture, standard to ABS-grade engineering plastics in terms of toughness, through to transparent and opaque materials in terms of clarity and shades.

The company says it will enable designers, engineers and manufacturers to simulate very precise material properties to closely resemble the intended end-product with the greatest level of realism. The Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer allows users to combine 14 of these materials into a single consistent model.

David Reis, cheif executive at Objet, says: "With 39 new Digital Materials, Objet has become the first 3D printing company to break the 100 materials barrier."

These machines will be used by design and manufacturing companies for product prototyping, testing and functional verification.
