Objet to Showcase Functional Product Realism at SolidWorks World

-- Objet Booth #500 --

BILLERICA, Mass., Feb. 1, 2012 — (PRNewswire) —   Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, today announced that it will showcase a full-size, 3D printed car dashboard from StreetScooter at this year's SolidWorks World in San Diego from February 12-15. Shown for the first time in the United States, the five-foot wide fully-assembled dashboard prototype was created with multi-material printing, including Objet's ABS-like Digital Material, and features a display screen and other fine details that simulate a dashboard's look, feel and function.

Objet worked closely on the project with StreetScooter, a consortium of more than 80 companies united with an aim to develop an affordable electric car with an emphasis on sustainability. Working closely with the group, Objet has produced highly realistic prototypes for the development of the style and function of the car, including a 1.4 meter wide dashboard made from over 20 individually printed parts. 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.

SolidWorks attendees can see the fully-assembled dashboard and additional 3D printed products at the Objet booth #500. In addition, Objet will be running the compact Objet260 Connex multi-material 3D Printer to showcase the advantages of multi-material printing for fit, form and functional testing. Objet offers close to 70 materials, the most versatile solution for true product realism.

Also featuring at the show will be a diverse range of exceptionally realistic prototypes, all real applications from Objet customers including automotive and defence parts, kitchen utensils, film special effects, medical devices, dental veneers, footwear and more.
