CONNEX 350

Connex 350 uses proven Poly Jet 3D Printing which 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 photo-polymer onto a build tray and instantly cures them with UV light. The fine layers build up to create a prototype or end-use part.

Along with the selected model material, the 3D printer also jets a gel-like support material designed to uphold overhangs. When printing is done, the nontoxic support material is easily removed with a water jet. Models can be handled and used immediately, without additional post-curing. With its astonishingly realistic aesthetics and ability to deliver special properties such as transparency, flexibility and even bio-compatibility, Poly Jet 3D Printing offers a competitive edge in consumer products prototyping, precision tooling and specialized end-use parts.

Dimension BST 768

Dimension BST 768 enables you to build parts quickly, even if you have never used a 3D printer before. Its display panel prompts you to press a few keys to get you modeling quickly.The system models with ABS plastic, so modeled parts are strong and durable. ABS also ensures that you will be able to drill, tap, sand, and paint your creations. With the speed and convenience of Breakaway Support Technology, completed parts are quickly available for review and test.

Specifications of Dimension BST 768
Build Size: Maximum size 203 × 203 × 305 mm (8 × 8 × 12 inches)
Accuracy: +-0.127mm (Depend on Geometry)
Machine Size (WXDXH): 686 × 914 × 1041 mm (27 × 36 × 41 in.)
Machine weight: 136 kg (300 lbs.)
Materials: ABS plastic in standard white, blue, yellow, black, red, green or steel gray colors. Custom colors available.
Layer thickness: 0.254 mm (.010 in.) or 0.33 mm. (.013 in.) of precisely deposited ABS and support material.

Software and support removal: Catalyst™ software automatically creates any needed support structures to complete the part. With Dimension BST, breakaway support technology allows for easy support removal – simply break away the supports.
