Objet-Created Models From Blockbuster Movies Showcased at SIGGRAPH 2011

August 9, 2011

BILLERICA, Massachusetts, August 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ –

Objet Ltd. [http://www.objet.com ], the innovation leader in 3D printing
[http://www.objet.com/rapid_prototyping ] for rapid prototyping
[http://www.objet.com/rapid_prototyping ] and additive manufacturing, will
be showcasing its advanced 3D printing solutions at SIGGRAPH’s 38th
International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive
Techniques, 7 – 11 August 2011 in Vancouver, Canada.

Objet’s newest multi-material 3D printer, the compact Objet260 Connex
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printer/Objet260_Connex ] – based on the company’s
patented inkjet 3D printing technology and the world’s only system able to
jet two materials at the same time – will be on display.

Objet will be showcasing Objet-created models from two blockbuster
movies: Destroyer, from the 2011 American superhero film Thor and Neytiri of
the Na’vi clan from 2009′s Academy Award winning movie Avatar. The models
are just a few examples of how Objet’s technology is used by Legacy Effects
- an award winning, full service character design, make-up, specialty prop
and animatronic studio – to help bring movie characters to life.

Jason Lopes [http://youtu.be/cxZMf8Om4-k ], senior systems engineer at
Legacy Effects, says that rapid prototyping has been integral to their
design process since Jurassic Park 3: The Lost World. “From the moment we
were introduced to Objet’s technology, we knew it would change our
business,” says Lopes. “Things we had never thought of are possible with
this technology. All detail is captured and nothing is ever lost or
forgotten in translation. Basically, anything that we can think up, the
Objet 3D printers can print within hours.”

Objet will also have several extraordinary models on hand to demonstrate
the breadth and versatility of its materials, capable of simulating
properties ranging from varying grades of rubber
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials/Overview/Rubber-like ] to clear
transparency
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials/Overview/Transparent ], all the
way to rigid, ABS-grade engineering plastics
[http://www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials/Overview/ABS-like ]. Objet
currently has over 60 3D printing materials, including 51 composite
materials (Digital Materials), allowing designers and engineers to print
typically challenging parts.

Visitors to Objet’s booth (934) can view:

        - A model motorcycle from the workshop of Orange County
          Choppers - a New York-based custom and production motorcycle
          manufacturer featured on Discovery Channel's American Chopper. The
          motorcycle was built to demonstrate the ability to adhere different
          Objet materials together to produce a prototype to help the team at
          Orange County Choppers fully understand the design intricacies of the
          motorcycle.
        - A fully functional skateboard, printed on an Objet Connex
          multi-material 3D printers which has similar high dimensional stability,
          thermal resistance, and toughness as ABS-grade engineering plastics
          [http://www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials/Overview/ABS-like ],
          enabling it to repeatedly sustain the weight of a person.

Objet 3D printers use patented inkjet-based technology to jet ultra-thin
layers of photopolymer materials onto system build trays, where each layer
is cured with UV light. The process delivers models which can be handled
immediately, with exceptional accuracy and allowing complex geometry,
including thin walls, overhangs and even moveable parts.

Objet’s true-to-life models offer unique opportunities for the Animation
and Entertainment industry. Objet looks forward to hosting SIGGRAPH
attendees at the Objet Booth 934 to experience the latest in 3D printing
systems and materials.
