Why the New Objet500 Connex2 Multi-material 3D Printer is Great News for Manufacturers
The new triple-jetting Objet500 Connex2 Multi-material 3D Printer was introduced this week by Stratasys at IMTS 2014 in Chicago and is
expected to set new standards for 3D printing price/performance and high
throughput additive manufacturing.
For a unique perspective on this newest addition to the Objet500 Connex series, check out the video below.
One of the most important manufacturing applications being revolutionized with Objet Connex 3D Printing is injection molding.
Leveraging PolyJet-based technology, the Objet500 Connex2 can produce
injection molds for testing designs in their final materials before mass
production and for manufacturing low volumes of end-use injection
molded parts. Compare this with the considerable time and expense of
using CNC-tooled molds to test injection mold designs and you’ll
understand why more and more manufacturers are integrating Stratasys 3D
New UV-Resistant ASA Thermoplastic Expands 3D Printed Outdoor Applications, Introduced at IMTS
Stratasys has expanded the variety of outdoor and mechanical
applications that can be 3D printed with the launch of its new ASA on
September 8, at IMTS. ASA (Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate) is an
all-purpose thermoplastic 3D printing material for Stratasys FDM-based
3D Printers and Production Systems. Manufacturers in the automotive,
electronics, commercial, sporting goods, construction and other
industries will benefit from ASA’s strength and durability. Applications
include jigs and fixtures, electrical boxes, recreational vehicles and
Compatible with the Fortus 360mc, 400mc and 900mc 3D Production
Systems, ASA thermoplastic surpasses the capabilities of ABS, offering
UV resistance so parts will be durable and resist fading even with
long-term exposure to direct sunlight.
Considered to have the best
aesthetics of any FDM material available, ASA offers an exceptio…
R U OK day today! Make sure you take the time to have a meaningful
conversation with someone and listen to find out if they are OK.
Sir Richard Branson said, "If you can't see someone in person, the next best thing is to call and ask
“are you ok?” As friends, we can listen and let them know we care.
Come on Australia, let's put the voice back into conversation."
R U OK? Ambassador and actor Simon Baker said "We have horrible
droughts in this country; we have bushfires and other incidents where
Australians band together. We have proven that we have the strength and
the power to stand together as a community. To be able to show that same
strength as individuals and have conversations one-on-one with friends
would be an incredible step forward for us all”

Congratulations to Sid Tass and TDL Precision Orthodontics for the article in the Herald Sun on Friday 5th September 2014.
3D Printing is changing the way that so many different industries do
business, and digital dentistry is a great example of using 3D Printing
to innovate and revolutionize an existing service or product.
Register for the 2014 3D Printing Showcase now. The showcase will be held on September 12-13 at the University of Melbourne in Parkville.
Matt Minio, Managing Director of Objective3D, will be presenting a discussion on 3D Printing in Education - From entry level concepts to cutting edge research. With such a wide variety of 3D Printing technologies available today, he will cover how 3D printing can be used across a wide range of faculties and business units.
