Stratasys -- a manufacturer of 3D printers and materials for personal use, prototyping, and production -- today announced the launch of the Objet500 Connex3 color multi-material 3D printer, which the company calls the first and only 3D printer to combine colors with multi-material 3D printing.

The printer features a triple-jetting technology that combines droplets of three base materials to produce parts with combinations of rigid, flexible, and transparent color materials as well as color digital materials -- all in a single print run. This ability to achieve the characteristics of an assembled part without assembly or painting helps product manufacturers validate designs and make decisions earlier before committing to manufacturing.

Similar to a 2D inkjet printer, three color materials -- VeroCyan, VeroMagenta and VeroYellow -- are combined to produce hundreds of vivid colors. These color materials join Stratasys' extensive range of PolyJet photopolymer materials including digital materials, rigid, rubber-like, transparent, and high-temperature materials to simulate standard and high-temperature engineering plastics.

The Objet500 Connex3 color multi-material 3D printer also features six palettes for new rubber-like Tango colors, ranging from opaque to transparent colors in various shore values to address markets such as automotive, consumer and sporting goods and fashion. The unit is commercially available today and is sold through Stratasys' reseller network. Pricing is available upon request.
