REHOVOT, Israel, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, launched today at Euromold the Objet1000, the company's largest 3D printer to date. Featuring a 1000 x 800 x 500 mm (39.3 x 31.4 x 19.6 inch) wide-format build envelope, the Objet1000 is ideal for automotive, defense and aerospace, industrial machinery, consumer goods and household appliance sectors as well as high-end service bureaus that need to create industrial size, 1:1 scale prototypes.
Ideal for all-round fit, form and functional prototyping, the Objet1000 combines a large and extremely convenient build platform with the advanced precision of inkjet 3D printing and Objet's renowned Connex multi-material capability - all in a single machine.
According to Objet CEO David Reis, "As our largest ever 3D printing system, the Objet1000 takes advanced inkjet 3D printing technology to the next scale. The system enables our customers in a range of industries to now quickly and effectively prototype anything at full size, 1:1 scale, from whole airplane and automobile assemblies to complete household appliances. The Objet1000 is the next step in the 3D printing revolution".
"The Objet1000 saves manufacturers and designers from having to assemble prototypes from smaller-sized jigsaw pieces or from having to use various less effective or efficient solutions," said Igal Zeitun, VP for Product Marketing and Consumables at Objet.
"Unlike comparable 3D printing systems, the Objet100 is just as good at printing 1:1 scale casings that can be drilled, assembled, and screwed together as it is at reproducing the precise look and feel of small, complexly assembled consumer products. The system is easy to use, can work for prolonged unattended periods, and requires only the minimal manpower to operate," added Zeitun.
The Objet1000 system offers an unrivaled choice of over 100 materials, enabling designers and engineers to simulate both standard and ABS-grade plastics. As with all Objet Connex 3D printers, the Objet1000 is also able to print up to 14 different material properties within a single model.
Objet is hosting a Press Conference at Euromold on Tuesday 27th November at 3:30pm, at Portalhaus, Room KORALL after which media can schedule one-on-one meetings with Objet executives. Media are also invited for refreshments at the Objet stand following the press conference for live demonstrations of the Objet1000. Media unable to attend the press conference can follow the news reported live from Euromold on the Objet blog.
Objet also is holding a live webinar introducing the Objet1000, hosted by Bruce Bradshaw, Objet's Marketing Director for North America and Igal Zeitun, Objet's Vice President Product Marketing and Consumables. Media interested in participating in the webinar can contact Todd Graff at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1-617-412-4000.
The Objet1000 also will be introduced at Autodesk University 2012 in Las Vegas. Bruce Bradshaw, Marketing Director for North America, will be presenting "Additive Manufacturing: Affordable? Accessible? Adoptable?" on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 8 a.m. (PST) at Mandalay Bay (Breakers H, Level 2), and media are welcome to visit Objet's booth, #1101, throughout Autodesk University.
First shipments of the Objet1000 will be to select customers starting from Q2/2013. Wider availability is expected during H2/2013.
