3D print in hundreds of composite materials
Create prototypes with a wide range of physical properties, colors and tones. Digital Materials empower you to bring your designs to life with realistic colors and textures faster than ever before.
What are Digital Materials?
A Digital Material is the result of combining two or three PolyJet photopolymers in specific concentrations and microstructures to create a composite material with hybrid characteristics. All possible combinations are preconfigured and selectable in Objet Studio and PolyJet Studio Software to ensure predictable, repeatable results.
This example combines the translucent Rubber-like material Tango Plus with Rigid Opaque materials Vero Magenta and Vero Yellow. You can see that the hue varies from yellow to magenta with a range of oranges in between, while the color intensity and opacity fade as the flexibility increases.
The 3D printing possibilities
A single model 3D printed on the Stratasys J750 can incorporate over 360,000 colors and an astonishing array of materials in a single build process. These are just some of the possibilities:
Simulate a variety of elastomers by combining rigid and flexible materials.
- Use Rigur as your rigid material on Connex3 and Objet1000 Plus for greater toughness and a range of Shore D values from 76 to 84.
- Use Digital ABS as your rigid material on the Stratasys J750 and Connex3 for greater durability and a range of Shore A values from 27 to 95.
Mimic standard plastics by combining materials with greater heat resistance and superior toughness to form Digital ABS.
- 3D print cost-effective injection molds for prototypes and pilot runs.
- 3D print tough jigs and fixtures that can be replaced on-demand.
Produce photorealistic details on the Stratasys J750 with a gamut of more than 360,000 colors. Connex3 can produce hundreds of vibrant colors in a variety of translucencies and durometers.
- Use clear, flexible TangoPlus to vary translucency and flexibility.
- Use opaque, flexible TangoBlack to vary shade and flexibility.
- Use VeroClear to vary color intensity and translucency.
