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.

Can Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?

With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
