Stratasys Objet Connex Series

Featuring the Objet Connex 1 and Connex 3 Series 3D Printers

Versatile Rapid Tooling

Nearly a decade ago, Stratasys introduced the world to multi-material 3D printing with the introduction of the original Objet Connex system. Today, this PolyJet technology is flourishing and allowing companies to achieve unprecedented efficiency in their 3D printing initiatives.

 

Stratasys’ triple-jetting technology allows Objet Connex users to print in multiple materials simultaneously


Mix IT UP

Stratasys’ triple-jetting technology allows Objet Connex users to print in multiple materials simultaneously. A single print job can contain up to three separate materials – either in the form of a mixed tray, a mixed-material part, or even mixing of the materials themselves to form new, digital materials.

MULTI- MATERIAL

Multi-material printing simplifies scheduling and minimizes material changeovers. This allows a single printer to support a diverse team as well, or even better than multiple conventional 3D printers can. With up to three materials available to be printed at any time, print jobs that would normally need to be done sequentially can be completed in parallel instead.

More Color and Material Choices with Stratasys Objet Connex 3D Printers


More CHOICES

Quit making concessions in your designs and prototypes – print in the exact material you want, with the properties you need. With almost two dozen base materials available, users have a wide selection of options to fit their requirements. With the Connex2 and Connex3 systems, digital materials expand the number of available options into the thousands.

The Stratasys Objet Connex series includes a variety of 3D Printers

THE RIGHT fIT

The Objet Connex series includes a variety of printers to choose from because every user needs something a little different. The Connex1, Connex2, and Connex3 each have slightly different printing abilities, and each comes in a size fit for you.

High-Quality Printing

Stratasys Connex systems print in very fine layers (as little as 16 microns or 0.006”) and boast an accuracy of about +/- 0.06%. PolyJet technology, which these systems use, is known to create parts with excellent surface finish with minimal defects. The printheads deliver resin at 1600 DPI.

 

Multi-Material Printing

It can’t be stressed enough – the ability to print in multiple materials at the same time has far-reaching implications. Create more functional parts by adding soft, non-marring coatings to rigid parts, or add translucent/clear sections to opaque parts. Combine materials to achieve desired properties, or just print in the base resins and build completely different types of parts on the same tray.

Objet Connex series 3D Printers have faster throughput

Throughput

Because Connex machines use a wide print head, printing is generally faster than other technologies and scales very well. PolyJet machines do not trace or outline parts, they sweep across the build tray while depositing resin droplets several inches wide. Adding additional parts to the job may add just a small percentage to the overall build time, making this series an excellent choice for high throughput environments.

 

SIMPLE SOFTWARE

Stratasys has empowered the Connex series with their GrabCAD Print software. Open native CAD files, manipulate colors, create digital materials, and quickly process print jobs with minimal training required. There isn’t an easier pathway to professional quality, multi-material prints than GrabCAD Print. Read More.

The Connex series includes 2 flavors and 3 available sizes. Overall, there are 5 different hardware configurations.

The starkest difference is the availability of digital materials on the Connex3 platform. A digital material is the result of base resins being mixed prior to curing – this allows users to zero in on material properties they desire. The Connex3 platform is also the gateway system to Stratasys color printing.

The Connex series will print nearly two dozen separate base materials, and the Connex3 systems will allow users to mix those base materials to form thousands more. Materials categories include: Rigid Opaque (including colors), Rigid Clear, Rubber-like, Medical, Digital ABS, Polypropylene-like, and High Temperature.  See All Objet Connex Materials Here

One of PolyJet’s greatest assets is its ease-of-use and minimal post-processing. Stratasys Connex systems do not require any special ventilation, PPE, or other burdensome barriers to use. GoEngineer offers small footprint, low overhead hardware solutions for both types of support material available on the Connex systems: wash-away and soluble.
While the Connex3 does have the ability to print in color, the available palate is not broad enough to be considered “photo realistic.” Mixing up to 3 base materials can achieve a wide spectrum of colors, including translucent mixes, but more accurate colors will need additional base resins (good news however, the Stratasys J-series can load up to 6 materials for this purpose and achieve incredible color accuracy).
