Custom Tooling in Hours, Not Days
Connex2 systems help you avoid stumbling blocks like machine-shop backlogs and high fabrication costs. With triple-jetting technology, 140 Digital Materials and two spacious build-tray options, you get the space and material variety to unleash productivity. 3D print jigs, fixtures, injection molds, silicone molds and sandcasting patterns in-house for next-day use. In one print job, you can combine tough Digital ABS with a base material, like TangoBlack, to produce tools with non-slip surfaces or soft-touch coatings.
For tools or prototypes that require a range of mechanical, optical or thermal properties, you can combine pairs of base resins in preset configurations to render up to 27 distinct material properties in one part. Create transparent gauges, ergonomic non-slip grips, and fixtures that require a range of Shore A values or precision threading. Render words and numbers clearly directly on the part, straight from the CAD file, for reliable tracking.
No matter what you’re building, Connex2 offers ample material capacity and hot-swapping capability (the option to replace an empty material canister while another canister of the same material is in use). So you can spend more time perfecting production and less time patrolling your 3D printer.
Connex2 with triple-jetting technology gives you:
• Great throughput for tooling and prototypes
• 140 two-component Digital Material options
• 14 base material options
• Up to 27 material properties in a single build
• Material hot-swapping
• Two spacious build-tray sizes
More Than 140 Material Options
Base materials include:
• Transparent materials with great dimensional stability and surface smoothness
• Rubber-like materials (Tango family) suitable for non-slip surfaces or simulated overmolding
• Rigid Opaque materials (Vero family) in white, gray, blue and black
• Simulated Polypropylene materials with toughness and durability to create living hinges, flexible closures and snap-fit prototypes
Composite Digital Materials include:
• Digital ABS and Digital ABS2 to simulate the heat resistance and toughness of standard ABS plastic
• High Temperature materials in varying shades and hardnesses
• Rigid Opaque and Transparent materials in shades of blue and gray
• Rubber-like materials with varying shades, translucencies and elastomer characteristics
• Simulated polypropylene with varying grayscale shades and Shore A hardness values.
