The Objet1000 is Objet Ltd.’s largest 3D printer to date, featuring a 1,000 × 800 × 500-mm wide-format build envelope. This large build platform is combined with inkjet 3D printing and the company’s Connex multi-material capability, making the printer suited for all-around fit, form and functional prototyping.
Designed to save manufacturers from having to assemble prototypes from smaller-sized pieces, the Objet1000 is suited for automotive, defense and aerospace, industrial machinery, consumer goods and household appliance sectors, as well as high-end service bureaus that need to create industrial-size, 1:1 scale prototypes. It offers a choice of more than 100 materials, enabling designers and engineers to simulate both standard and ABS-grade plastics, and is able to print as many as 14 different material properties within a single model.
