The Objet500 and Objet350 Connex3 bring agility and aesthetics to every stage of your product development and production. The Connex3 system was the first 3D printer in the world to simultaneously 3D print multiple colors and materials. It continues to lead the field with an even broader range of printing capabilities so you can create parts with the precision, look and feel of real production parts. Connex3 delivers incredible efficiency with the power to serve your diverse needs with one system.
Multiple materials can be loaded at one time in the Connex3, enabling you to print parts that require a range of mechanical, optical or thermal properties like non-slip grips, transparent windows or flexible hinges.
Fast, flexible colors can be printed directly from the color information in your original CAD file. Produce smooth three-color gradients, vivid multi-color textures, sleek transparencies or milky opaque colors.
No assembly required for parts 3D printed with multiple materials, so you can create custom jigs, assembly fixtures and tools with ultra-fine accuracy and smooth surfaces.
The point-and-click Objet Studio software makes it simple for anyone to build high-quality accurate 3D models with the Connex3 systems.Get a Quote
Over 1,000 material options are available on the Connex3, enabling you to print both complex and delicate features on your models, re-creating astonishingly realistic production parts. Delivering special material properties such as transparency, flexibility and even bio-compatibility, the PolyJet technology built in to the Connex3 systems offers you a competitive edge in consumer products prototyping, precision tooling and specialized production parts.

Transform your STL and WRL files from your favorite 3D CAD application into precise, high-quality models with supports. Objet Studio has click-and-build wizards that quickly let you edit trays, assign materials, manage job queues and perform routine system maintenance from your networked workstation.
Take advantage of seamless design-to-3D print workflow with PTC Creo CAD software and the Objet500 Connex3 3D Printer. With this combination, you can now print without leaving your PTC Creo CAD software. Choose materials and colors and optimize your model's geometry including checking for proper wall thickness, holes and unclosed surfaces—all in native PTC Creo format. When in online mode, you can even check to see which materials and colors are loaded in the printer and if it's available for use, without the need to use Objet Studio.
“The ability to quickly 3D print high quality parts that require no post-processing has proven instrumental in cutting our iterations and directly reducing our product development cycle. In fact, since introducing Stratasys 3D printing, we have slashed our prototyping costs by 75% and accelerated our development time by 50%.”
