Objet Ltd. has added 39 new Digital Materials for use with its Connex range of multi-material 3D printing systems, bringing the total number of available materials to 107. The materials range from rigid to rubber-like substances in terms of texture, standard to ABS-grade engineering plastic in terms of toughness, and from transparent to opaque in terms of clarity and shades.
 
Digital Materials are multi-phase composites derived by mixing primary Objet materials. According to the company, this enables designers, engineers and manufacturers to simulate precise material properties to closely resemble their intended end-product with increased realism. Objet Connex multi-material 3D printers enable users to combine as many as 14 of these materials at the same time in a single model.
