Objet350/500 Connex3

Hundreds of Materials for Maximum Versatility

The world’s most versatile multi-material 3D printer puts products on the fast track through development and production. From testing to rapid tooling, get the properties, pigments and precision you need to build great products faster.

Versatile Rapid Tooling

Bring new production-floor efficiencies to fruition with in-house tooling, custom jigs, assembly fixtures and gauges. With triple-jetting technology, hundreds of Digital Materials, and two spacious build-tray sizes, Connex3 is your product development and production powerhouse.

Get unmatched versatility with a range of material properties from rubber to rigid, transparent to opaque, neutral to vibrantly colored and standard to biocompatible. For jobs that require a range of mechanical, optical or thermal properties, only Connex3 lets you combine up to three base resins in pre-set configurations to produce up to 82 materials in a single build.

3D print jigs, fixtures and tooling – even short run injection molds, blow molds and sandcasting patterns – to exacting specifications with 16-micron layer thickness and smooth surfaces right off the print tray. Create ergonomic, multi-material tools with non-slip grips, rubberized product-facing surfaces, crisp print and color coding directly from the digital file. With Connex3 on your manufacturing floor, you’ll be more agile than ever.

Connex3 with triple-jetting technology gives you:

  • Great throughput for tooling and prototypes
  • Hundreds of two- and three-component Digital Material options
  • 14 base material options
  • Up to 82 material properties in a single build
  • Material hot-swapping for efficient workflow
  • Two spacious build-tray sizes

For office-friendly operation in a smaller size, see the Objet260 Connex3 in our Design Series.

Hundreds of Digital Materials

  • 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.
  • Bio-compatible: Medical materials offer excellent visualization and great dimensional stability for dental delivery trays, surgical orthopedic guides and hearing aids.
  • Bio-compatible: Medical materials offer excellent visualization and great dimensional stability for dental delivery trays, surgical orthopedic guides and hearing aids.
  • Simulated Polypropylene: 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.

Objet Studio Software

connex3_software_color_gearsObjet Studio makes it simple to build high-quality, accurate 3D models. It automatically transforms STL files from any 3D CAD application into 3D modeling slices including both build material and support. With click-and-build wizards, you can quickly edit trays, assign materials and colors, manage job queues and perform routine system maintenance.

Objet Studio features:

  • Easy tray setup including multiple models and materials
  • Automatic support generation
  • On-the-fly slicing so printing can start right away
  • Auto-placement of trays for accurate, consistent positioning
