MakerBot PRO Series: Bike Seat Design

Watch and learn how one industrial designer can go from from idea, to sketch, to CAD, to 3D printing – all in a weekend.   This story is part of MakerBot’s series of design studies, exploring iterative design and the relationship between designers and their tools.  

3D Printed iPhone Case with Moving Gears!

These personalized iPhone cases, designed by Danny Tasmakis were 3D printed on an Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer and feature moving interlocking gear wheels! This is the only 3D printer of its kind in the world able to create complex assemblies made of moving parts – each of which is printed in a different material. In this video, you see a small selection from among the total Stratasys range of 107 materials, including transparent, black, transparent with patterned dots and grid lines, white and various composite grey/blue shades.  

Printing a Giant Wrench with a 3D Printer

3D printers can be used to create virtually any object directly from a computer-aided design. This video shows how a Stratasys Objet Connex 3D printer can produce 6 different sizes of adjustable wrenches – from 5 cm to 50 cm – all in one print run. All the wrenches contain fully-movable parts and require no assembly after printing. The wrenches are made of Digital ABS material which has the strength of ABS-grade engineering plastics.  

Having Fun with a 3D Printed Gear Cube!

This cube made of inter-locking gear wheels was printed on a Stratasys Objet 3D Printer. The material used here is VeroClear transparent material. The cube emerges already fully assembled from the 3D printer. As you can see, there is no residue support material – the gears interlock accurately and smoothly – a testament to the Stratasys Objet 3D printer’s high resolution print quality.  

Testing a Baseball Bat Created on a 3D Printer

We create a fully-functional baseball bat prototype on an Stratasys Objet Connex Multi-Material 3D Printer and test it against a variety of objects to see if it breaks. The bat is printed in the Stratasys Digital ABS Material – a very strong and functionally versatile composite material that is unique to the Stratasys Objet Connex range of 3D printers. Even though the bat has a very thin neck supporting a heavy end, it does not shatter or splinter upon hard contact with various objects.  

EuroMold 2011 – A First Peak!

Sam Green takes a first look at EuroMold 2011 and the Objet stand, including a look at some of the amazing 3D models and prototypes on display. EuroMold is the primary European event for rapid prototyping, additive manufacturing and 3D printing.  

Tiny 3D Printed Car! (With Moving Wheels)

These tiny 3D printed cars were printed on the Stratasys Objet Eden 3D printer and scale down from 4 cm in length to a tiny 1cm in length. Even in the tiniest car, the wheels remain fully functional and there is no deformation of walls or loss of fine details – highlighting the enormous power of the Stratasys Objet line of 3D printers to turn CAD designs into visually and functionally accurate prototypes.  

Amazing 3D Printed Racing Car Steering Wheels with Tiny Writing!

Gary Miller at IPF, a 3D printing and rapid prototyping service bureau in the UK sends Sam Green at Objet a series of 3D printed steering wheels, printed on the Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printer. The steering wheels, a combination of Objet VeroWhitePlus rigid material with overmolded TangoBlack rubber-like material, feature tiny 3D printed writing, which remains visible and accurate down to a fraction of a mm.  

EuroMold 2011 – 3D Printed Car Dashboard!

Jonathan Jaglom (VP Sales Operations, Objet) walks us through the Objet stand at EuroMold with a look at some of the applications created in the company’s new Digital ABS Material, including this full-size, functional 3D printed car dashboard, 3D printed injection molding plates and 3D printed skateboard.  

Make your Own Multi-Tools! On an Objet 3D Printer

The Stratasys Objet Connex500 Multi-Material 3D Printer printing 32 fold-up multi-tools all at the same time on the same tray! The tools are created in Objet’s tough Digital ABS material – known by its krypton ‘green’ coloring. The tools, along with their folding hinges, joints and pins come out of the printer already fully-assembled! Once the support material is washed away they are ready to use and strong enough to stand up to any rapid prototyping and design verification & testing purposes.  

EuroMold 2011 – 3D Printed Models for Digital Dentistry

Avi Cohen (Head of Medical and Dental Solutions, Objet) walks us through some of the amazing digital dental models and parts printed on Objet 3D printers at this year’s EuroMold. Includes a look at the new Objet Biocompatible transparent material and a range of surgical guides, aligners and models for orthodontic and dental applications.  

David vs.Goliath using a 3D Printed Catapult!

This catapult was ‘printed’ on a Stratasys Objet Connex Multi-Material 3D printer. The material is Stratasys Objet Digital ABS Material – a special composite material able to functionally simulate real ABS engineering plastic. All parts of the catapult were printed together at the same time on the same build tray – including the extendable arm, the spring and the tension screw. The catapult is an excellent benchmark for demonstrating the capabilities of the Digital ABS Material to perform under tension and compression.
