3D Printer can create injection molds using Digital ABS
The new triple-jetting Objet500 Connex2 Multi-material 3D Printer was introduced this week by Stratasys at IMTS 2014 in Chicago and is expected to set new standards for 3D printing price/performance and high throughput additive manufacturing.
For a unique perspective on this newest addition to the Objet500 Connex series, check out the video below.
One of the most important manufacturing applications being revolutionized with Objet Connex 3D Printing is injection molding. Leveraging PolyJet-based technology, the Objet500 Connex2 can produce injection molds for testing designs in their final materials before mass production and for manufacturing low volumes of end-use injection molded parts.  Compare this with the considerable time and expense of using CNC-tooled molds to test injection mold designs and you’ll understand why more and more manufacturers are integrating Stratasys 3D Printers for production tooling applications.
The perfect choice for both design and manufacturing applications, the Objet500 Connex2 comes equipped with a large build envelope and can produce parts from three diverse materials in a single production run. This allows users to create assemblies with components formed from three different materials, or it can produce components that contain both rigid and flexible materials.  The Objet500 Connex2 can also produce hundreds of composite Digital Materials with a wide range of material properties.
