Now Available: ABS-like Material for Simulating Engineering Plastics, Clear Transparent Material and Rigid White Material for All-round Application use
REHOVOT, Israel, April 13, 2011 - Objet Geometries Ltd. (www.objet.com/), the innovation
leader in 3D printing (www.objet.com/rapid_prototyping/) for rapid
prototyping and additive manufacturing, has announced today the commercial
availability of three new advanced materials (
www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials), a new ABS-like Digital Material
(RGD5160-DM), a new clear transparent material (Objet VeroClear), and a new
addition to the Objet Vero family; the Objet VeroWhitePlus.
With these new additions, the number of Objet 3D printing
materials is brought to a total of 65, including 51 composite materials
(Digital Materials (
www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials/Overview/Digital/), for a wide
range of rapid prototyping purposes, covering from realistic product
visualization all the way to advanced functional verification.
The Objet ABS-like (
www.objet.com/3D-Printing-Materials/Overview/ABS/) Digital Material is
a high-impact (65-80J/m or 1.22-1.50 ft lb/in), high-temperature-resistant
(65degreesC or 149degreesF and after thermal post treatment 90degreesC or
194degreesF) 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
The Objet Clear material (
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.
The Objet VeroWhitePlus (
general purpose material that was recently released for Objet's desktop
family 3D printers (
www.objet.com/NEWS_EVENTS/2_new_desktop_3D_printers_euromold/) 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
Maximilian Loerzel, Managing Director for Schroeter, a
Germany-based service bureau, commented on the performance of the new
materials for the company's automotive customers, "Both the ABS-like material
and the clear transparent material are exactly what we, in the automotive
industry, are looking for and are essential for the rapid prototyping of our
show car. The ABS-like material, with its heat resistance, toughness and
flexibility, is well-suited for simulating outdoor applications, while the
clear transparent material arrived just in time for the automotive lighting
revolution, enabling us to simulate PlexiGlass final parts, including light
guides, lamps, display panels and more."
Michael Rueckner, Head of CAD/CAM Rapid Prototyping Department
for Volke Entwicklungsring GmbH, says, "The use of latest technologies is our
top priority. Thanks to Objet's Connex500 with the new digital materials we
are able to accelerate the production of ABS-like parts by up to 50%."
Gary Miller, Head of Rapid Prototyping at IPF, a service bureau
in the UK, adds, "I can see huge potential for the new Objet VeroClear
material, particularly within the consumer electronics sector. During the
beta testing we had great success producing clear screens, casing and housing
for electronics. The new clear material allows LED lights to be easily seen
within the casings and housings. Objet has considerable advantages over other
technologies as well as cutting timescales dramatically. It sounds like a
simple requirement, but I doubt others could compete on all these aspects of
- Objet VeroWhitePlus, recently launched (
www.objet.com/NEWS_EVENTS/2_new_desktop_3D_printers_euromold/) for the
Desktop family of 3D printers is now available for the Objet Connex and the
Objet Eden 3D printing systems. (Availability initially limited to specific
- Objet VeroClear is now available for the Objet Connex and the
Objet EdenV 3D printing systems.
- Objet ABS-like material (RGD5160-DM) is now available for the
Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printers. (For existing customers,
operating this material requires the installation of an upgrade kit to the
existing Objet 3D printer).

About Objet Geometries
Objet Geometries Ltd. (www.objet.com/), the innovation
leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing,
provides 3-dimensional printing systems that enable manufacturers and
industrial designers to reduce cost of product development and dramatically
shorten time-to-market of new products.
Objet's ultra-thin-layer, high-resolution 3-dimensional printing
systems and materials utilize PolyJet polymer jetting technology, to print
ultra-thin 16-micron layers. The market-proven Objet Eden line of 3D Printing
Systems and the Objet24 and Objet30 desktop 3D printers are based on Objet's
patented office-friendly PolyJet Technology. The Objet Connex multi-material
family is based on Objet's PolyJet Matrix Technology, which jets multiple
model materials simultaneously and creates composite Digital Materials on the
fly. All Objet systems use Objet's FullCure(R) materials to create accurate,
clean, smooth, and highly detailed 3D parts.
Objet systems are in use by customers worldwide, including
Fortune 100 companies, in multiple industries such as dental, medical,
medical devices, education, consumer electronics, automotive, toys, consumer
goods, and footwear industries.
