Objet Geometries Connex RP Samples

objet_geometriesWe have received a few samples of printed objects in the past from Objet Geometries and each time we get samples we are more impressed with what they achieve. Out of the 3 or so samples we have received each one is slightly more advanced than the previous 3D print allowing for various types of plastics to be used on a single pass.

At Core77, Objet Geometries were demonstrating some printed objects which were just fantastic it has to be said. Objects ranged from a set of wheels with soft rubber tires that had working suspension and a rigid frame work. What makes it more impressive is that everything was printed with a single pass. Basically you feed the machine with a type of CAD file that contains the 3D data and plastic data and it prints the object out for you.

Although some of the parts were painted to get them to the final product, there are a number of plastics used in a single pass allowing flexible and rigid plastics to be mixed together. My thoughts are that it’s only a matter of time before colours will be made available along with different types of material.

Details of Objet can be found here. Check out the video below to see some of the samples created for Core77.
