Stratasys Ltd., a leading global provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, released a previously announced extension to its range of flexible and rigid material options for the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer.
 
Hundreds of new rubber-like color materials and many rigid ones combined with existing options, allow virtually unlimited combinations of flexible, rigid, and translucent-to-opaque colors in a single print run.
 
The new color options are ideal for creating medical, automotive and consumer product components in popular gray along with vibrant color components that offer true-to-life aesthetics. 
 
This allows the production of complete products without manual assembly. And it allows product designers to validate designs and make decisions further in advance of tooling to improve designs and reduce tooling costs, reduce development cycle and time-to-market.
 
“The Objet500 Connex3 is the only 3D printer that combines colors with multi-material 3D printing. The ability to mix rigid, flexible, transparent and opaque colors offers users unprecedented versatility to design and perfect products faster,” says Stratasys Director of Materials & Applications Fred Fischer. “By extending the range of material options available, users can improve workflow speeds and enhance efficiency.”
 
Ranging from transparent to opaque and spanning a wide selection of Shore A values, the new flexible color options comprise six rubber material palettes. 
 
These consist of:
-Three flexible 72-color palettes, composed of rubber-like (TangoPlus) and combinations of rigid opaque (VeroCyan, VeroMagenta and VeroYellow) materials.
-Three flexible 68-color palettes, built with rubber-like (TangoBlackPlus) and combinations of the same rigid opaque (Vero) colors.
 
Further strengthening its rigid color range, Stratasys also increased the number of gray and subtle color options with:
-Three 45-color rigid gray palettes, each of which combines rigid VeroWhite and VeroBlack with colors.
-One 45-hue gray palette, with varying levels of translucency, and which includes a reflective luster for the production of sleek, high-quality parts for products such as consumer electronics.
-The new flexible color options are available immediately to Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer owners through a free software update.
 
Stratasys Ltd., headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Rehovot, Israel, is a leading global provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions. The company's patented FDM, PolyJet, and WDM 3D Printing technologies produce prototypes and manufactured goods directly from 3D CAD files or other 3D content. Systems include 3D printers for idea development, prototyping and direct digital manufacturing.
