About Objet Geometries Ltd.:
Objet Geometries, a pioneer in the jetting of photopolymer, develops, manufactures and globally markets ultra-thin-layer, high-resolution 3-dimensional printing solutions for rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing. The market-proven Eden line of systems is based on Objet’s patented office-friendly PolyJet™ technology. Objet’s FullCure® materials create accurate, clean, smooth and highly-detailed models and prototypes, enabling even the most complex 3-D shapes to be printed with exceptional quality, accuracy and speed. Connex500™, Objet’s latest innovation, is based on Objet’s PolyJet Matrix™ technology, which offers the simultaneous jetting of multiple model materials. PolyJet Matrix jets Digital Materials™ that create composite materials on the fly. Objet’s solutions enable manufactures and industrial designers to reduce cost of product development cycles and dramatically shorten time-to–market of new products. Objet systems are in use by world leaders in many industries, such as automotive, electronics, toy, consumer goods and footwear industries in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Japan. Founded in 1998, Objet serves its growing worldwide customer base through offices in USA, Europe and Hong Kong, and a global network of distribution partners. Objet owns more than 50 patents and patent pending inventions.
Objet CADMatrix enables designers to specify Objet material preferences for their 3-D multi-part and multi-material product designs. These designs will be printed on the Objet Connex500 3-D printer.
As a designer, this easy to use add-in smoothes and speeds-up the communication cycle between you and the Connex500 printer. All of the printing information, including material assignment, is encapsulated within the file. Control your design from start to finish, guaranteeing the models will best reflect your design.
CADMatrix for SolidWorks is available at no charge for download from Objet.com, registration is required.
CADMatrix uses an intuitive 3-step wizard.
The first window, Select Materials, allows you to select the material cartridges to be used during printing with Connex500.
The second window: Assign Properties, takes you through the property assignment process.
The third window summarizes all decisions previously made. Specify the location to which the file will be saved.
You can generate a summary in HTML format or send the file by email for printing on the Connex500.
