The latest in compact 3D printing


XYZ Innovation, distributor of Objet 3D printing equipment, has unveiled the latest addition to its rapidly expanding range – the Objet260 Connex 3D printer.

The Objet 260 is a compact, attractively priced addition to Objet’s family of multi-material printers.

Objet 3D printers are the only in the world with technology to jet two materials at the same time to produce advanced composite materials, with up to 14 individual materials in a single print run.

This opens up a whole range of new applications for 3D printing, including the accurate representation of assembled goods and consumer products.

For designers and engineers wanting a prototype that requires a particular tactile feel such as a mobile phone, they can now be accurately reproduced in a single print job using a hard material for the shell and a flexible material for the keypad.

There are more than 60 materials to print with, among them the newly released ABS-like and clear transparent materials.

From a technical perspective, the layers created by the Objet260 Connex are 16-micron and its tray size is 260 x 260 x 200mm (10.2 x 10.2 x 7.9”) and uses sealed material cartridges that are easy to insert and remove. Models are cured during the build process and can be handled immediately after printing.

Daniel Thomsen, Business Manager of XYZ Innovation, said: “2011 has been an exciting year for Objet with the recent release of low-cost Desktop printers, and a great new range of materials to broaden the scope of applications. Now we reveal the new Objet260 Connex an affordable compact multi-material 3D printer for designers and engineers who demand the highest quality prototypes and true-product representation.”
