Alin’s SW 2013 Pick of the Day – Fill External Cavities with Discrete Bodies Using the Intersect Tool

Last week I showed you how to use the new Intersect tool for simplifying your model by filling its internal cavities. Today let’s consider the situation where you need to fill the external cavities from the Mr. Smiley model with discrete solid bodies in order to 3D print the end result with a bi-material printer from the Objet Connex family. This video proposes two different solutions for this challenge. Can you think of more?

How to add text to a multi material 3D printed part

Many people are curious about how to include text elements (or other components) in a 3D printed multi material part. In my last post I described the features of a multi material sample with 10 different materials on it. Coincidentially, I needed to include some text blocks…

Printing multi-material parts with a Stratasys Connex 3D printer

The Connex line of Stratasys Design Series 3D printers is the only 3D printing solution able to use two materials at the same time, and obtain a new one by combining these two base materials. To demonstrate this unique capability I modeled a sample part…

3D Printing Project: Wall-E (Part I)

So, we have an Objet500 Connex3 3D Printer here at the office, and I got thinking – what could I print that would really demonstrate the capabilities of this incredible machine and push it’s limits. There’s some complex automotive components with moving components that would…
