Objet to Showcase 3D Printing, including 3D Printed Dashboard at Hannover Messe

Objet GmbH, a subsidiary of Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, exhibits the latest in 3D printing technology and its real-world applications at Hannover Messe 2012.

“Objet leads the way in high-quality, professional 3D printing,” states Eric Bredin, European Marketing Director for Objet. “With a portfolio of nearly 70 materials of varying physical and mechanical properties, Objet has the most diverse range of 3D printing materials on the market; enabling our customers to produce the most exceptionally realistic prototypes.”

Visitors to Hannover Messe can see stunning examples of true-to-life prototypes on the Objet stand, including a fully-assembled car dashboard complete with display screens. 1.4 meters wide and assembled from over 20 individually printed parts, the dashboard was produced for StreetScooter, a project involving a consortium of over 80 companies, united with an aim to develop an affordable electric car with an emphasis on sustainability. Major parts of the dashboard were printed in the Objet ABS-like Digital Material, chosen for its exceptional dimensional stability and toughness. Additional Objet materials were used to simulate fine-details. The parts were then glued, polished and painted to precisely simulate the true look, feel and function of the dashboard.

Further prototype models on the Objet stand illustrate real-life applications from a diverse range of industries including automotive and defence parts, kitchen utensils, special effects for film and television, medical devices, dental veneers, footwear and more.

The entry-level Objet Desktop printer runs live on the Objet stand, alongside the unique and widely acclaimed Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printer. Demonstrating the advantages of multi-material 3D printing, the Objet Connex500 can print models with varying properties from rigid to rubber, opaque to transparent, to engineering plastics simulation.
