Objet, the Israeli 3D printer manufacturer announced a few months ago that it was coming out with a number of new materials. I was just tipped of this video where they show some of the applications of their new stronger ABS-like materials. In the video they show you how they”ve 3D printed scissors and a skateboard deck with Objet machines and materials. Objet”s polyjet process has traditionally had a high level of detail but the parts have not been strong and have had low heat resistance. These new materials are aÂ great improvementÂ and you can watch the video below.Â
The video is 8 minutes long. You can skip directly to a nice transparent piece here, theÂ skateboard deck hereÂ (they only talk about the deck, the rest seemsÂ not to be 3D printed),Â they also have a multimaterial piece that is printed in rubberlike andÂ other material on the same printer, you can see aÂ faucet orÂ tap they made hereÂ and here you can see 3D printed scissors.Â The workingÂ coffee cup is here but it is finished and post processed.
