Sharpen communication, energize collaboration and shorten product development cycles. With PolyJet’s signature precision plus soluble support, you can capture every detail with greater efficiency and design freedom.
For parts that require a range of mechanical, optical or thermal properties – like overmolding, transparent housing, flexible hinges or heat-resistant surfaces – Connex3 can produce a range of Digital Materials in every print job for realistic prototypes without extra assembly and post-processing.
Produce smooth three-color gradients and vivid multi-color models based on the color information in your original CAD file.
PolyJet for design
Create precise threading or crisp lettering directly from CAD. With 16-micron layer resolution, the Connex3 lets you see, touch, test and perfect every detail.
Soluble support material gives you the flexibility to create delicate features, internal voids or undercuts that water-jetting could miss or damage.
Not only is support removal hands free, models are smooth, beautiful and ready to handle without additional curing or post-processing.
An efficient workflow means greater productivity, so the Objet260 Connex3 achieves a low total cost of ownership.
Customer success: Thermos
Consumers are always looking for impressive new products, and Thermos strives to answer with lighter weight, better usability and better pouring performance. 3D printing gives the company the agility to innovate fast and maintain leadership in its industry.
“We can make as many prototypes as we need until we achieve our design goals.”
— Shin Matsuyama, Thermos K.K.
When you combine three materials from the Rubber and Rigid Opaque families, you can produce prototypes with a range of Shore A values in a wide range of colors from deep dark to fluorescent, and even translucent.
Digital ABS in the Mix:
For outstanding durability and a range of Shore A values, you can combine durable, two-component Digital ABS material with Rubber material.
Tough single-material options withstand the stress of living hinges, flexible closures and snap-fit parts. Combine with Rubber-like materials for a range of grayscale shades and Shore A hardness values.
This heat-resistant material is ideal for thermal testing of static parts. Combine with Rubber material to achieve a range of material properties.
Medical rapid prototyping materials offer excellent detail visualization and dimensional stability for dental delivery trays, surgical orthopedic guides and hearing aids.
With a range of bright and subtle colors, opacities and elastomer characteristics, this adaptable material is ideal for modeling a wide variety of products from soft grip handles to footwear.

Objet Studio Software
Objet Studio makes it simple to build high-quality, accurate prototypes. It transforms STL or WRL files from any 3D CAD application into print-ready 3D models with color, material, and support placement information. With click-and-build wizards, you can quickly edit trays, change materials and colors, manage job queues and perform routine system maintenance.
Objet Studio features:
- Easy tray setup including multiple models and materials
- VRML support for easy color assignment
- Automatic support generation
- On-the-fly slicing so printing can start right away
- Auto-placement of trays for accurate, consistent positioning
- Multi-user networking
