Stratasys’ Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer has a triple-jet technology with combines three different kinds of polymers at the print head. Hundreds of colors and materials can be mixed together to significantly reduce the time needed for manufacturing complex objects. Like no other 3D printer before it, the new machine operates with three colors at the same time-VeroCyan, VeroMagenta and VeroYello-and can produce unlimited number of different shades.

Different-colored photopolymers can be used to test designs and produce working models before manufacturing the final object. Objet500 Connex3 has a print cycle of 30 kilograms of resin and can create objects out 16-micron-thin layers. And finally, it uses a new “flexible” color polymer, which is the first of its kind in the 3D printing industry, according to the company.
