Objet launched the Connex350, the company’s second rapid prototyping system that simultaneously prints multiple materials with different mechanical and physical properties. Modeled after Objet’s Connex500, the new system features the same PolyJet Matrix Technology as its predecessor, but with a smaller build tray size (350 x 350 x 200mm). With a build resolution of 600 x 600 x 1600 dpi, the Connex350 can deposit layers on the z-axis down to 16-micron (0.0006 inch)

Like the 500, the system jets two distinct Objet FullCure photopolymer model materials in preset combinations. The dual-jet process combines these multiple materials to produce mixed parts and to create one-of-a-kind Digital Materials, that have pre-set, user-defined combinations of mechanical properties.

The combination of rubberlike, flexible material and rigid material allows users to print models for a variety of applications, from coating and shock absorbers to living hinges and gaskets.
