Top 5 Uses for Stratasys Connex 3D Printers

Article by Rod Mackay updated February 19, 2016


Take a look at the video below to see five of the most popular applications and uses for Stratasys Connex multi-material 3D printing including fast, effective blow molding tools, more efficient injection molding tools, rubber-like fixtures, grips and over-molding, vibrant colour prototyping, and more.

Connex is the most versatile 3D production system

With the ability to 3D print the full range of Digital Materials including colour, the Objet350 and Objet500 Connex3™ 3D Production Systems create precise production parts with unprecedented versatility. Choose from a wide range of material properties, from rubber to rigid, transparent to opaque, neutral to vibrant, and standard ABS to bio-compatible.

You can 3D print custom jigs, assembly fixtures and gauges, and tooling with ultra-fine accuracy and smooth surfaces quickly and easily — no assembly required. Connex delivers triple-jetting efficiency with the power to serve diverse needs from one system.

Driven by powerful PolyJet technology

Proven PolyJet 3D Printing is famous for smooth surfaces, fine precision and diverse material properties. It works a bit like inkjet document printing, but instead of jetting drops of ink onto paper, the print head jets microscopic layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly cures them with UV light. The fine layers build up to create a prototype or production part.

Along with the selected model material, the 3D printer features two support material options: SUP705, which is easily removed with a WaterJet; and SUP706, which is soluble for automated post-processing and increased geometric freedom to print complex and delicate features and small cavities.
