A Multitude of Materials

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 Color Print 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.

Detail and Realism

Create precise threading or crisp tracking codes directly from CAD. With 16-micron layer resolution, you can see, touch, test and perfect every detail.

Great Throughput

With a spacious build envelope and the ability to vary materials within a single print job, you can pack a tray with assorted parts to power through tool and prototype production.

Efficiency

Spend less time processing parts. PolyJet models are smooth, beautiful and ready to handle without additional curing or post-processing. Soluble support material lets you clean undercuts and internal voids with minimal effort.

Cost Performance

High throughput and an efficient workflow optimize your productivity, so Connex3 achieves a low cost of ownership per part.
