Objet Showcases Exquisite Examples of Professional 3D Printing Applications at the 3D Print Show

With a goal of extending the awareness of 3D printing, Objet, the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, exhibits some stunning examples of real-life professional 3D printing applications at the inaugural 3D Print Show today.

Two pieces from Neri Oxman’s Imaginary Beings: Mythologies of the Not Yet series, recently exhibited at the Centre Pompidou in Paris,  take centre stage on the Objet stand (P19 Level 2, Porter Tun Room). Printed using Objet’s unique Connex multi-material 3D printing technology, Oxman explains why the process was significant in the development of the pieces, “Objet 3D printing technology was extremely important in dreaming up this project. It wasn’t about generating forms and then using 3D printing to print them. It was really about using multi-material technology as an opportunity to think about how to make these ‘contraptions’ or ‘wearable myths’ mythical, and how to actually make them work better as products or objects for the human body.”

Legacy Effects’ Jason Lopes, another Objet technology user, explains how 3D printing is used within the business in two seminars on Saturday 20th October 15:00-16:00 and Sunday 21st October 11:00-12:00. An award winning full service character design, make-up and animatronic studio, Legacy Effects’ work can be seen feature films such as Avatar, Iron Man II, Shutter Island, Alice in Wonderland, and Thor and has been nominated for an Academy Award® for Iron Man. With Objet Eden and Objet Connex multi-material 3D printers, Lopes’ team is able to react to short deadlines, cater for multiple projects and make changes and different versions easily with quick conversion from scan files: “The best thing about 3D printing for me and my team is that our customers and actors can interact and try out the fit of our concept designs. When we produce character suits, creature mock ups and make-up effects, the materials are so durable and workable they can really see how it’s going to work out for them on set.”

Designer Daniel Hilldrup will also feature Objet 3D printed work at the show. ‘Flux, appearing in the 3D Printshow’s art gallery, was produced on an Objet Connex multi-material 3D Printer.

Described by Hilldrup as “a statement on the transference of energy and its transition and total transformation from one physical state and form into another”, Flux depicts black candle wax melting into the liquid base of a candelabra, captured, like a fossil, at a specific moment in time.

“We’re delighted to count Objet among the exhibitors at the 3D Printshow,” says Kerry Hogarth, founder of the 3D Printshow. “As a leading player in the 3D printing community, providing professional equipment for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, Objet makes an excellent addition to the show.”

Objet Launches Most Versatile Desktop 3D Printer and Catchy Promo Video

Objet30 Pro Desktop 3D Printer

Objet, the Israeli 3D printer manufacturer that recently merged with Stratasys, has announced a new professional Desktop 3D printer priced at $19,900.

From the Objet press release:

Objet Ltd , the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, has today launched the new Objet30 Pro – the most versatile professional in-house desktop 3D printer available on the market. Unveiled at RAPID, the new desktop 3D printer offers 7 different materials, including, for the first time on a desktop system, clear transparent material and high temperature resistant material.

The Objet30 Pro is positioned as the ultimate rapid prototyping solution for designers and engineers, ranging from industries such as consumer goods and consumer electronics to medical devices and design consultancies.

The Objet30 Pro takes its place as the new top-of-the-line addition to Objet’s existing desktop 3D printer line which starts at $19,900. With a small footprint, professional 28 micron print quality and wide ranging material versatility, the Objet30 Pro produces high quality prototypes with a choice of 7 different materials and functional properties, offering designers and engineers a world of possibilities:

  • Objet clear transparent material (Objet VeroClear) for simulating PMMA/glass;
  • Objet High temperature material for heat-resistant static functional testing;
  • Objet polypropylene-like material (Objet DurusWhite) for simulating snap-fit parts; and
  • Four rigid, opaque materials for standard plastic simulation (Objet Vero Family in black, white, gray, and blue).

“Having the correct tools and resources to advance our product development is critical for our organization,” said Gregory Janice, Engineering Manager at Princeton Tec. “The Objet30 Pro’s ability to print parts made with a clear transparent material on a desktop 3D printer combined with its ease of use and versatility made the Objet30 Pro a sound investment for our team.”

“The Objet30 Pro is the next evolution in desktop 3D printers developed specifically for professional users”, said David Reis, CEO of Objet. “This desktop 3D printer provides outstanding print quality with a choice of seven materials that until now could only be found in much larger, high-end 3D printers. The Objet30 Pro is the perfect combination of professional, versatile in-house 3D printing at an attractive price point,” concluded Reis.

Objet released a catchy video to showcase the printer capabilities.
