Stratasys Objet500 Connex3
The Connex3 3D printer is capable of patterning multiple polymer materials simultaneously. The system supports a very wide range of thermoplastics, photopolymers, elastomers, and functional polymers that can be combined concurrently in a single fabrication run to create “digital materials”, and integrate these materials into complex 3D structures with particular relevance to robotics and microsystems applications. Because the different classes of polymer can be deposited and patterned in a single workflow, exceptionally complicated and multifunctional elements can be realized that would be impossible to achieve using traditional manufacturing methods. The tool offers a large build envelope of 50x40x20cm with a maximum resolution of 16 µm.
