Stratasys Adds Flexible Color Materials for Objet500

Current Objet500 users can access the new materials with a software download.

Stratasys has released a variety of flexible and ridge material options for the Objet500 Connex3. These new material options allow for almost unlimited options of flexible, rigid and translucent-to-opaque colors in a single run, the company states.

The new available colors and materials, that comprise six rubber material palettes, are:

  • Three flexible 72-color palettes, with combinations of TangoPlus rubber-like and rigid-opaque material.
  • Three flexible 68-color palettes, with TangoBlackPlus and combinations of rigid Vero colors.
  • Three 45-color rigid gray palettes
  • One 45-hue gray palette with varying translucency.
“The Objet500 Connex3 is the only 3D printer that combines colors with multi-material 3D printing. The ability to mix rigid, flexible, transparent and opaque colors offers users unprecedented versatility to design and perfect products faster,” says Fred Fischer, director of materials & applications at Stratasys. “By extending the range of material options available, users can improve workflow speeds and enhance efficiency.”

The new color options are available for use through a software update.
