Stratasys Asia Pacific has just launched the Objet500 Connex3 Colour Multi-material 3D printer. 

The name may be a bit of a mouthful, but what it means is that this 3D printer is capable of printing up to three different materials at the same time and combining them to produce objects with parts that are rigid, flexible, and/or transparent — all in the same print.

RAINBOW HUED: Stratasys Objet500 Connex 3 Color Multi-material 3D printer can print 3D objects in multiple colours in a single print run.

Addtionally, by using coloured materials, the triple-jetting technology utilised by the Objet500 Connex3 can also print coloured objects with up to 46 different colours possible in one single print run. 

The Objet500 Connex3 can print as fine as 16 micron layers to produce prototypes with a high level of detail.

Being a PolyJet-based printer, the Objet500 Connex3 produces 3D prints in much the same way as a regular photo printer — except instead of dye, the 3D printer extrudes a liquid photopolymer material which is then hardened (or “cured”) by exposure to ultraviolet light. 

The printer is aimed at the automotive, medical, fashion and sporting goods industries to facilitate the production of fast and detailed prototypes.

CAPABLE: Stratasys Objet500 Connex 3 Color Multi-material 3D printer can produce full-coloured objects for rapid 3D prototyping.

The price? Being a high-end product in the Stratasys line, the Objet500 Connext3 Multi-material 3D printer has an equally hefty price tag — US$500,000 (about RM1.6mil).
