Objet Ltd [http://www.objet.com ]., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid
prototyping [http://www.objet.com/RESOURCES/Rapid_Prototyping ] and additive manufacturing
has announced 39 new ‘Digital Materials’ available with its Objet Connex range of
multi-material 3D printing systems. This development places Objet customers at the
forefront of additive manufacturing in terms of range of possible printing materials to
choose from. Customers can now select from 107 materials ranging from rigid to rubber-like
substances in terms of texture, standard to ABS-grade engineering plastic in terms of
toughness, as well as from transparent to opaque, in terms of clarity and shades.

90 of the 107 materials made available by Objet are ‘Digital Materials
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials/Overview/Digital_Materials ]‘, derived by the
composite mixing of primary Objet materials. This enables designers, engineers and
manufacturers to simulate very precise material properties to closely resemble their
intended end-product with the greatest level of realism. The use of the Objet Connex
multi-material 3D printer [http://www.objet.com/3D-Printer/Objet_Connex_Family ] allows
users to also combine up to 14 of these materials; such as rigid and flexible, or opaque
and transparent materials, at the same time in a single consistent model.

According to David Reis, CEO for Objet, “With 39 new Digital Materials, Objet have
become the first 3D printing company to break the 100 materials barrier. Considering that
we had half this number just a few short years ago, this growth in material choice
confirms our commitment to consistently deliver new and enhanced material properties to
our customers,” explains Reis. These new materials will be used by design and
manufacturing companies in virtually every industry segment and in every stage of their
product prototyping process from form modeling to fit testing and functional verification.

The company has also today launched two new material enhancements. It now offers a new
and improved Objet Rigid Black material (Objet VeroBlackPlus) providing increased
dimensional stability and surface smoothness for all-purpose rapid prototyping
applications.* Objet’s 2011-released High Temperature material, offering the high thermal
functionality of engineering plastics will be available on all Objet Connex
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printer/Objet_Connex_Family ] and Objet EdenV 3D Printers
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printer/Objet_Eden_Family ] and the new Objet30 Pro Desktop 3D
Printer [http://www.objet.com/3D-Printer/Objet_Desktop_Family ].

About Objet Digital Materials

Objet’s Digital Materials
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials/Overview/Digital_Materials ](TM) are
multi-phase composite materials fabricated by the Objet Connex 3D printing system. The
main purpose of Digital Materials is to combine different materials to produce a new
material with new attributes that are not available in the separate individual
constituents.

Objet’s Digital Materials are generated on-the-fly based on the two distinct
cartridge-based materials that are installed in the system.

The Objet Connex family of 3D printers is able to simultaneously print two resin
materials to create nearly 90 different types of Digital Materials. Together with an
initial choice of 17 cartridge-ready materials, this gives users an overall choice of 107
different materials and composite material combinations.
