Versatile Rapid Tooling
3D print jigs, fixtures and tooling – even short run injection molds, blow molds and sandcasting patterns. With triple-jetting technology, hundreds of Digital Materials, and two spacious build-tray sizes, Connex3 is your product development and production powerhouse.
For parts that require a range of mechanical, optical or thermal properties – like non-slip grips, transparent windows, flexible hinges or heat-resistant surfaces – Connex3 can vary material properties within a single print job.
Fast, Flexible Color
Stratasys Creative Colors Software, powered by Adobe 3D Print Color Engine, blends new color capabilities with a hassle-free workflow. Produce smooth three-color gradients and vivid multi-color textures based on the color information in your original CAD file, and/or graphic elements added right in Adobe Photoshop. The software recommends the closest visual match, and provides realistic previews to eliminate the guesswork.
Triple-jetting technology and two spacious build envelope options provide the space and material variety to power through tool and prototype production. You can even produce a tray of assorted parts in a single print job.
Fine details and smooth surfaces
Create precise threading or crisp tracking codes directly from the CAD file. With ultra-fine 16-micron layer resolution, PolyJet technology gives you smooth surfaces, thin walls and outstanding accuracy, down to the finest detail.
For delicate or geometrically complex models, soluble support material dissolves effortlessly from internal voids to preserve fine features that water-jetting could miss or damage.
Spend less time attending printers and processing parts. PolyJet models are ready to handle and use right out of the build chamber, with no post-curing needed. Plus, hands-free support removal and material hot-swapping (replacing an empty cartridge while a second cartridge of the same material is in use) capabilities further minimize demands on your time and effort.
Low total cost of ownership
An efficient workflow means greater productivity, so every triple-jetting system achieves a low total cost of ownership per part.
