May 2006 Readers Choice Award: Eden500V

By DE Editors

Large-Format PolyJet Rapid Prototyper from Objet Geometries

Readers’ Choice Winner

Objet Geometries (Rehovot, Israel) has intriduced the Eden500V, its newest large-format PolyJet rapid prototyping system. In North America,  the Eden500V is distributed by Stratasys (Minneapolis, MN).

Besides the PolyJet hallmarks of speed, detail, and surface smoothness, the Eden500V has a larger build envelope than previous models. It measures 19.7 in. X 15.7 in. X 7.9 in. (500mm X 400mm X 200mm), permitting the construction of bigger models and multiple models to be built simultaneously.

New speed and resolution settings allow users to match these properties to specific projects. In high-speed mode, the speed effectively doubles that of previous PolyJet systems. The high-resolution setting of 16-micron (0.0006 in.) layers enables fine detail and surface finish. The unit uses sealed liquid resin cartridges; as each model layer is built, it is simultaneously cured with UV light. Fully cured models are removed from the machine.

The Eden500V uses all available PolyJet materials, ranging from general-purpose, transparent resins to those with high strength and rubber-like flexibility.

North America distribution details are available from Stratasys.
