Clearstep is a UK based orthodontics lab using Objet 3D printers to rapidly produce customized teeth models for the production of clear aligners and clear positioners. The move for digital orthodontic workflow with the use of Objet 3D printers has enabled the company to achieve consistent accuracy, consistency and speed for their customers. Using Objet 3D printers the company can now service 60 customers per day – where they were able to service just 25 using manual teeth modeling methods. Thanks to Objet and other process efficiencies, company turnover is forecasted for the year to increase by approx 40%,…
Seeing a model prototype of her new pasta strainer design come to life thanks to Quirky and their Objet 3D printer is enough to almost make this designer cry for joy.
Gary Miller at IPF Service Bureau in the UK explains the unique business advantages his service bureau gains from operating Objet 3D printers. The company uses the Objet Eden350V and the Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printer. The Objet Connex, due to its unique multi-material jetting capability, can print different materials into the same model, and hence many different model orders on the same tray at the same time. The multi-material capability includes printing a range of rigid and rubber shores simultaneously and also a range of materials capable of simulating the strength and temperature resistance of engineering plastics. Objet 3D…
Trek Bicycles uses their Stratasys Objet Connex500 3D printer and the Digital ABS material to rapidly prototype functional bike parts that can be tested on real bikes – in the field – just 2 hours after on-screen design! The Stratasys Objet 3D printing process saves weeks from the conventional CNC milling process, and allows Trek to perfect their design parts before production.
The Stratasys Objet260 Connex is an affordable, compact version of Stratasys Objet’s pioneering line of multi-material 3D printers. It enables designers and engineers to rapidly build prototypes to simulate their intended end-product more efficiently than any other existing technology.

Objet, the leading producer of advanced, inkjet-based 3D printers working in collaboration with the young designers of Keter Plastic’s d-Vision, has donated the following 3D printed art pieces to a charity auction to raise money for social and educational youth programs. The charity auction was hosted at the renowned Holon Design Museum.
Sam Green from the Objet blog visits the Pompidou Center in Paris to witness first-hand some of the incredible 3D printed objects designed by Neri Oxman for her ‘Imaginary Beings Mythologies of the Not Yet’ exhibit which features 18 prototypes of the human body. All models were 3D printed on the Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer – the only system of its kind in the world capable of creating diverse geometric 3D forms using a mix of different materials at the same time, in the same model.
For the first time ever, designers have 3D printed a multi-material dress composed of both rubber-like and rigid elements that are 3D printed simultaneously on the Stratasys Objet Connex system. Here, we interview the creators; Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen and professor Neri Oxman from the MIT’s Media Lab.
Iris van Herpen, among the first fashion designers to explore creative opportunities with 3D printing, returns to Paris Fashion Week with dazzling 3D printed shoes featured in her new show ‘Wilderness Embodied.” The shoes were designed for the collection by Rem D Koolhaas, Creative Director and Founder of United Nude. Inspired by nature, the shoe design incorporates intricate lattices that wind around the foot, mirroring the growth of tree roots. The shoes were 3D printed on the Stratasys multi-material Objet Connex and Objet Eden 3D Printers. The fine detail expressed on the shoes, mimicking the natural world, was enabled…
Kicking off the 2013 Holon Fashion Week in Israel was a starry awards ceremony to honor the country’s top fashion designers. In this brief clip, Stratasys VP of Marketing Arita Mattsoff bestows the award for Best Accessories Design. The fashion week featured awards, lectures and special appearances by fashion luminaries. The awards themselves were produced on an Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer.
In this video interview shot at the 3D PrintShow in London, watch Masters and Munn describe the vision of their award winning sculpture “Icarus Had A Sister” – and how, after 9 years, they were able to turn their vision into beautiful reality. Only 3D printing could produce the more than 200 highly detailed feathers required to help the dramatic sculpture take flight.
Filmed at the 3D PrintShow in NY, this interview with Dr. Michaella Janse van Vuuren debuts her unique “Garden of Eden” fashion collection which she created using the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer from Stratasys. Produced in one print run, these pieces combines flexible, rigid and transparent materials – plus some of the brightest, most dramatic colors you’ve ever seen from a 3D printer. In this brief clip, Michaella discusses her inspiration for the pieces and also what it is like to create with 3D printing. You’ll also see one of the pieces actually being 3D printed….
Professor Neri Oxman, Architect, Designer and Professor of Media, Arts and Science at MIT, in collaboration with Professor W. Craig Carter, Department of Materials Science and Engineering of MIT Lab, continues to explore new worlds of sight and sound with the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer. In this exclusive interview, Neri describes her vision and surprising inspiration for the ground-breaking Gemini acoustic chaise. This is her first piece to combine both traditional and additive manufacturing processes. Is it furniture? Is it art? Is it a musical instrument? You decide after watching this thought-provoking clip.
Fresh on the scene fashion designer Noa Raviv has premiered her trend-bending “Hard Copy” collection. As her graduation project at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Hard Copy includes seven dresses featuring black and white ruffled fabrics and grid-like patterns that form voluminous shapes.
