Objet1000 3D Printer Has Company's Largest Build Volume

REHEVOT, Israel, Nov 28, 2012 - 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.

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.
