Stratasys Ltd., a manufacturer of 3D printers and materials for personal use, prototyping and production, received the bronze Best-of-Show award for the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer at the 2014 SolidWorks World event Jan. 26 – 29 in San Diego. The award was given by TenLinks, an online media company serving the CAD, CAM, and CAE community.
TenLinks selected 13 SolidWorks users to judge products based on their ability to enhance productivity when working with SolidWorks software and how relevant the technology is to CAD, CAM and CAE users. From over 100 companies’ products, judges first nominated 40 products for consideration and then voted for gold, silver and bronze awards for the categories of software and hardware.
Introduced at the SolidWorks World show on Jan. 26, the Objet500 Connex3 is the world’s first 3D printer to combine multicolor with multi-material 3D printing. Featuring a unique triple-jetting technology, this 3D printer combines droplets of three base materials to produce parts with virtually unlimited combinations of rigid, flexible, transparent, opaque and color materials in a single print run.
More than 5,000 people attended this year’s SolidWorks World, an annual event for SolidWorks software users, and the largest gathering of MCAD users in the world.
