Objet Geometries Ltd. (Billerica, MA), the innovation leader in 3-D printing, offers its Eden260V™ printer that provides unprecedented flexibility in using available printing materials.

It creates highly accurate models with exceptionally fine details and smooth surfaces. This system offers a compact machine ideal for a wider range of office environments and represents the first Objet small footprint printer that can support all of the company’s available proprietary model materials.

Like all of Objet’s Eden systems, the Eden260V™ uses the company’s renowned PolyJet™ Technology, which jets photopolymer materials in 16µ layers. Similar to a line printer, the jetting head slides back and forth along the X-axis depositing onto the build tray a single layer of photopolymer, which is immediately cured and hardened by UV light. The result is that fully cured models can be handled immediately without additional post-curing and are ready for product testing, as well as painting, drilling, chrome-plating or use as molds for tooling. By adding the capability to utilize the full spectrum of Objet’s numerous and diverse photopolymer materials, the Eden260V™ provides designers and manufacturers, the utmost flexibility in terms of fit, form, function and "feel" requirements.

Among the different Objet materials available for use in the Eden 260V™ are: FullCure 720® Transparent, ideal for a wide range of rigid models, particularly where visibility of liquid flow or internal details is needed; Vero, yielding opaque models in blue, black or white with good impact strength and the enhanced ability to withstand bending; Tango, transparent, black or gray rubber-like materials that offer exceptional elongation, excellent toughness and durability, and high resistance to tearing; and, DurusWhite , designed to simulate the appearance, flexibility, strength and toughness of polypropylene.
