Colour and Multi-Material 3D printing

The Stratasys Objet500 Connex3 and Objet350 Connex3 are the world's first triple jetting photopolymer 3D printer. They can 3D print in multiple colours and materials leaving designers with the ability to create beautiful prototypes with varying degrees of material properties including rubber, rigid, transparent, opaque, vibrant, and bio-compatible. The smooth surface finish and ultra-fine accuracy of PolyJet technology will give your parts the look and feel of true production parts, and the ability to print up to 82 material properties into a single build means no costly material changeovers and extensive post-processing.

Hundreds of Materials, Maximum Versatility

Connex3 was the first 3D printer in the world to simultaneously 3D print multiple colors and materials. Today it remains alone in its class with a broader set of capabilities that amplify its advantages. The Connex3 provides increased product realism for your prototyping needs and carries a broad spectrum of material properties from strong Digital ABS to flexible rubber. With the ability to print diverse materials in a single part there is no assembly required and your models will be presentation ready directly from the printer with little to no post-processing

 Key Features

Connex 3 Colour 3D Printing

Brilliant Colour

The Objet500 Connex3 lets you incorporate as many as 46 colours into one prototype, from true jet black to sunny yellow to shocking magenta and hundreds of beautifully blended hues.

Connex3 Digital Material Mixing

Digital ABS in the Mix

Six composite materials mix Digital ABS with Rubber-like Material to represent a variety of Shore A values with great durability.


A Multitude of Materials

With exponentially more multi-material options than other 3D printers, you can create ultra-realistic prototypes.

Multi-Material Parts

Incorporate up to 82 material properties into a single print, and with soluble support material your parts can be as complex as you want.

Build Modes

With three different build modes you can strike the right balance between material versatility, quality, and speed

Realism Aesthetics

Realistic Aesthetics

3D print with special properties like transparency, flexibility and bio-compatibility to best simulate your end design

 Powered By PolyJet

With PolyJet technology you are able to produce smooth and accurate models for a variety of concept modeling and prototyping applications.
With microscopic layer resolution and accuracy down to 0.1 mm, PolyJet 3D printing technology is the perfect fit printing with variety and versatility.



Polyjet for Production

Spend less time processing parts. Polyjet models are smooth, beautiful and ready to handle without additional curing or post-processing. Soluble support material supported on the Connex3 lets you clean undercuts and internal voids with minimal effort.

Proven PolyJet 3D Printing is famous for smooth surfaces, fine precision and diverse material properties. It works a bit like inkjet document printing, but instead of jetting drops of ink onto paper, the print head jets microscopic layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly cures them with UV light. The fine layers build up to create a prototype or production part.

Complete Design Freedom

3D Print larger parts or full trays of multi-material, multi-colour parts with a build tray size of 342 x 342 x 200 mm (13.4 x 13.4 x 7.9 in.) on the Stratasys Objet350 Connex3 3D printer and 490 x 390 x 200 mm (19.3 x 15.4 x 7.9 in.) on the Stratasys Objet500 Connex3 3D printer.

Print parts with multiple properties, and choose from a wide range of material properties, from rubber to rigid, transparent to opaque, neutral to vibrant, and standard to bio-compatible. 3D print custom jigs, assembly fixtures and gauges and tooling with ultra-fine accuracy and smooth surfaces quickly and easily – no assembly required for parts with multiple materials.
