With Connex multi-material 3D printers, assembly is optional. Future products to be built or assembled from two or more materials can be realistically 3D printed in one fast process and critically evaluated early in the design cycle. Each Connex system offers 16-micron layer accuracy in a range of 140 materials, so you can capture every detail.

Dual-jetting technology lets you take advantage of Digital Materials produced by combining two base resins in specific concentrations and structures. Mimic the durability and heat resistance of ABS plastic, or test designs that require functionally graded materials. Digital Materials: incorporate a range of hardnesses, opacities, shades or thermal properties into a single model for true-to-life prototypes.


With 140 material options, including more than 100 Digital Materials created on the fly, Connex 3D printers empower you to simulate a range of mechanical and physical properties, from rubber to rigid; opaque to transparent; and even ABS-grade.

Base materials include:

Composite Digital Materials include:

  • Digital ABS (RGD5160-DM fabricated from RGD515 and RGD535) for high heat resistance and toughness to simulate ABS plastic. Digital ABS2 matches those properties and provides superior rigidity and toughness in walls thinner than 1.2 mm (.047 in.).
  • High Temperature material for advanced functional testing, hot air and water flow, static applications and exhibition modeling
  • Transparent shades and patterns
  • Rigid opaque shades
  • Rubber-like materials with varying Shore A values
  • Simulated polypropylene with varying grayscale shades and Shore A hardness values.
