At Euromold 2012 Objet is showing off some of its latest innovations and impressive 3D printed work.
The brand new Objet1000 was launched at the first day and features a 1000 x 800 x 500 mm (39.3 x 31.4 x 19.6 inch) wide-format build envelope. The huge printing size allows customer to be able to print models at 1:1 scale for sporting goods, automotive, aerospace, household appliances etc. Objet is showing off in the video below a golf stick in full size:
Another interesting 3D print work is a radial engine model which was created in a single print job. It features moving parts and its level of polish highlighting the incredible precision of the printer.
Among all the visitors to the Objet booth, Stuart Burns, technical director from Rotite is a happy customer. Rotite uses a Connex500 3D printer and Objet's ABS-like Digital Material to produce high strength connectivity devices for fasteners and connectors. 3D printing helps him to rapidly and cost-effectively develop new intellectual property and test them quickly in the market. As you can see from the video below, when two 3D printed surfaces of a closing device are interlocked through a 90 degree turn, it creates an extremely strong connection. Stuart Burns and another man applied 70kg of force on it and it remains good, showing how strong the material is.
A week ago, we were impressed by a very beautiful 3D printed model of 'Ship in a Bottle' printed on an Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer, Objet showed off another similar "3D Printed Motorbike Suspended in Transparent Block" at EuroMold 2012. Both the motorbike and the transparent block were 3D printed in the same print session. Check the video below.
Hopefully Objet will have more to impress us in the future. Stay tuned.
