If you're a manufacturing or design company already using Objet's 3D printers or a business looking to acquire a new 3D printer, this is your chance to hear one of the industry's leading experts on everything to do with 3D printing, rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing.
Dr Ofer Shochet is Objet's highly sought after Executive VP for Products. He will be speaking at the 2011 3DSUG Conference at the Miami Downtown Hilton, on April 4, at 10.30am.
Topics he will be covering include:
- Objet's recent multi-material technology breakthrough; an ABS-like material simulating the performance of engineering plastics, and how these improved material and mechanical properties will change the world of 3D printing
- The latest rapid prototyping requirements of Fortune 500 organizations and leading service bureaus
- How inkjet-based multi-material 3D printing is generating a seachange in the way we visualize and test product designs
Also on display will be the Objet Connex500, the world's only multi-material 3D printer capable of simultaneous jetting more than one material. The Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer allows users to create a range of up to 51 rigid and rubber-like composite materials, or "Digital Materials" while also allowing users to create prototypes with overmolds and soft touch areas in a single build.
Below is an example of what 3D printing is really capable of. What is truly remarkable here is that this toy – with all its different material parts, came out of the Objet Connex printer as it looks here (i.e. there was no need to separately run-off the different material parts and then assemble them.) As you can see from the annotations, the model includes both ready-made Objet materials and also "DM's" – Digital Materials created by combining 2 existing Objet materials to form a completely new one. This particular model contains 11 different materials – all in one build.
