Connex3 Multi-material 3D Printer

Objet500 Connex3 is the world's first commercial full-colour multi-material, 3D printer. The printer will initially retail at about $330,000 (£200,000).

Objet500 Connex3 is a "triple-jetting" printer that combines droplets of three base materials, including rubber and plastic, that are mixed and treated to form products that consist of elements with varying flexibility and rigidity, transparency and opacity. Traditional 2D printer CMYK colours are mixed with the base materials enabling objects to be printed in a palette made up of 46 colours.
