In a news release dated March 13th, 2011, Objet Geometries, Ltd. announced that they had developed three new materials for additive 3D printing. Objet, the holder of 50 + patents, has been serving the global need for 3D printing technology since 1998.
RGD5160-DM – New ABS-like Digital Material
high-impact (65-80J/m or 1.22-1.50 ft lb/in), high-temperature-resistant (65°C or 149°F and after thermal post treatment 90°C or 194°F) material ideal for manufacturers and engineers looking to functionally simulate products made of ABS-grade engineering plastics, including snap-fit parts, durable and movable parts and products requiring drop-testing.
New clear transparent material that provides clear optical and visual transparency combined with great dimensional stability enabling designers to simulate PMMA in glass-like applications such as lighting cases, lenses and cosmetics containers.
New addition to the Objet Vero family all-round general purpose material that was recently released for Objet’s desktop family 3D printers is now available for the Objet Eden professional line of 3D printers and the Objet Connex line of multi-material 3D printers. The Objet VeroWhitePlus is ideal for fit and form testing for a wide range of industries and for validating model design.
