Color Multi-Material 3D Printer
0bjet500 Connex3 color multi-material 3D printer features triple-jetting technology that combines droplets of three base materials to produce parts with virtually unlimited combinations of rigid, flexible, and transparent color materials as well as digital materials in a single part run. Product designers and manufacturers have the ability to achieve the characteristics of an assembled part without assembly or painting. This helps them validate designs, make good decisions earlier before committing to manufacturing, and bring products to market faster. Similar to a 2D inkjet printer, three color materials-VeroCyan, VeroMagenta and VeroYellow-are combined to produce hundreds of vivid colors. The 3D printer features a large build envelope, is ideal for high capacity production, and can run with about 30 kg of resin per cycle.

Portable Measuring Arm
Next-generation RÖmer Absolute Arm offers CMM noncontact laser scanning capabilities for CAD-to-part inspections and reverse engineering applications. It provides immediate feedback of critical features after design iterations for quality control or rapid prototyping. The arm features optimized ergonomics, a new wrist design, and greater stability to create a better user experience while further reducing operator fatigue. The six-axis portable measuring arm introduces a wrist designed around the complex contours of the human hand. The new wrist on the seven-axis Absolute Arm has a more natural feel with rotation centered on the system's probe. Both systems feature a lockable, Zero-G counterbalance.

Software for 3D Printing
Magics software offers a whole range of new functionalities, including expanded measurement options with built-in ISO standard tolerances. Magicsl8 for 3D printing features new and improved cutting tools, enhanced surface to solid functionality, improved wall thickness analysis, and expanded reporting options. New 3-maticSTL lightweight structures module allows designers to reduce the weight of designs and replace solid volumes, create porous designs while minimizing costs and material usage and to create textures, perforations and patterns on your STL data and printed models. The STL files can then be printed with additive manufacturing or 3D printing technology. Magics SG+ module is the most complete support generation toolbox for metal applications minimizing part deformation due to thermal stress, overheating or by contact on the part of the machine's recoating system.
