Objet Enhances Dimensional Stability and Surface Smoothness of Rigid Black Material

Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, today announced the release of a new and improved Objet Rigid Black Material. The new material provides enhanced dimensional stability and surface smoothness making it ideal for fine detail, all-purpose rapid prototyping.

Headphones Prototype - Combining Rigid Black Sides and Black Objet Digital Materials for Soft-Touch Zones around Ears (Shore 40) and Top of Head (Shore 60) - Created in a Single Print Session

Based on the new and improved Rigid Black Material, Objet also introduces 16 new Rigid Black and Rubber-like Digital Materials (composite materials made by combining Objet Rigid Black and Objet Rubber-like Material).

For Objet Connex systems exclusively, these 16 new Objet Digital Materials enable the simulation of a variety of rigid/rubber-like properties including:

  • A higher toughness material, simulating polypropylene.
  • A range of flexible materials with different Shore A values from 27 to 95.

The new material combinations enable the easy and accurate prototyping of seals and packaging for consumer goods, consumer electronics and automotive parts. Such models require the combination of rigid and flexible properties within a single prototype of consistent black coloring (see headphones example in image).

Objet's new Rigid Black material and new Objet Digital Materials are available immediately*. Objet VeroBlackPlus replaces Objet VeroBlack.
