Dr. Ofer Shochet, Objet's Executive VP to Reveal New Trends for Rapid Prototyping at 3DSUG Conference

Dr. Ofer Shochet to discuss latest requirements of Fortune 500 companies and service bureaus and reveal newest advances in multi-material inkjet-based technology for simulating engineering plastics

BILLERICA, Mass., March 31, 2011 — (PRNewswire) — Objet Geometries Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, today announced that Executive Vice President for Products, Dr. Ofer Shochet will address this weeks 3D Systems User Group (3DSUG) Conference to talk about the latest rapid prototyping requirements of Fortune 500 organizations and leading service bureaus and how inkjet-based multi-material 3D printing is generating a significant change in the visualization and testing of product designs.  

"I am excited to speak at 3DSUG Conference. The attendees of this conference are experts in rapid prototyping and pride themselves on their in-depth knowledge of the technologies available to help their organization," said Dr. Ofer Shochet, Executive VP of Products for Objet Geometries. "It's an honor to address this audience to discuss our groundbreaking advances in 3D printing and to hear directly from them how these advances relate to their products development processes and needs."

The 2011 3DSUG Conference brings together operators and owners from leading companies to encourage and coordinate technical information exchange on rapid prototyping technologies. The event is being held at the Miami downtown Hilton from April 3rd to April 7th.

Shochet will present Objet's recent multi-material technology breakthrough; an ABS-like material simulating the performance of engineering plastics, and how these improved material and mechanical properties will change the world of 3D printing. Dr. Shochet will also reveal a number of substantial investments Objet has made in R&D to meet the stringent prototyping requirements of global companies worldwide.  

Objet is also a sponsor of the event and will participate in the vendor fair, showcasing the new Objet24 Desktop 3D printer, the industry's highest-resolution desktop 3D printer, enabling designers and engineers to create true-to-life models and prototypes featuring ultra-precise details and smooth surfaces.

Also on display will be the Objet Connex500, the only 3D printer technology that enables simultaneous jetting of multiple materials. The Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer allows users to create a range of up to 51 rigid and rubber-like composite materials, or " Digital Materials" featuring a wide range of Shore scale A values for rubber like simulation, a gray shade scale for rigid material simulation, and polypropylene simulation in terms of mechanical properties. This unique ability allows users to create models with as many as 14 different material properties in one part while also creating prototypes with overmolds and soft touch areas in a single build.

Additionally, Objet will showcase a number of upcoming new materials featuring improved mechanical and thermal properties, true transparency and properties simulating engineering plastics. The company will also be hosting an onsite hands-on technical seminar to the highlight best practices for maintaining Objet 3D printers.
