Objet Connex 260
The Objet Connex 260 3D printer is the latest addition to Design Reality's St Asaph operations.
Design Reality has invested in the multi-material Objet Connex 260 3D printer.
The St Asaph-headquartered company spent £150,000 on the printer, which offers superior 3D printing performance and enables clients to launch products into the market quickly, accurately and reliably by transforming creative design concepts into realistic and dynamic ultra-precision models, parts and prototypes.
Design Reality is confident that this leap in prototyping technology will significantly reduce project timescales by days, replacing traditional modelling methods such as injection moulding and RTV moulding.
The convenience of having on-site 3D printing facilities allows Design Reality's product development team to create and manufacture parts, equipment and new products accurately, reliably and expediently.
Having access to this effective and efficient system offers value to the innovations being explored and realised by the design consultancy's development team and to the success of its clients' projects.
3D impressions can be produced from sketches, CAD drawings and written descriptions. This cost-effective solution to model-making saves time and provides total peace of mind.
The Objet Connex 260 can print multiple materials within the same part simultaneously, incorporating both rigid and soft elements of a design. And within a single build process - with little effort - a prototype can be completed with a range of different shore hardness values allowing for a tailored production design to suit all manner of applications.
"Design Reality has introduced this outstanding technology to not only test its own designs but to enable clients to precisely and rapidly realise their own conceptual innovations," the company stated.
