A further 16 New Rigid/Rubber-like Composites brings the full Objet range to 123 Materials.
Objet Ltd., a leading company in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, has announced the release of a new and improved Objet Rigid Black Material. The company said that the new substance provides enhanced dimensional stability and surface smoothness making it ideal for fine detail, all-purpose rapid prototyping.
Based on the new and improved Rigid Black Material, Objet has also introduced 16 new Rigid Black and Rubber-like Digital Materials (composite materials made by combining Objet Rigid Black and Objet Rubber-like Material).
For Objet Connex systems exclusively, these 16 new Objet Digital Materials enable the simulation of a variety of rigid/rubber-like properties including:
• A higher toughness material, simulating polypropylene.
• A range of flexible materials with different Shore A values from 27 to 95.
The new material combinations have been developed to enable easy and accurate prototyping of seals and packaging for consumer goods, consumer electronics and automotive parts. These require the combination of rigid and flexible properties within a single prototype of consistent black colouring (see headphones example in image).
Objet's new Rigid Black material and new Objet Digital Materials are available immediately. Objet VeroBlackPlus replaces Objet VeroBlack.
