Objet 500 Connex
Multi material 3D printer
The Connex500™ is the first 3D rapid prototyping system to offer the unparalleled ability to simultaneously print parts of multiple model materials.
I2D designed the system for the office environment. In order to scale down the visual perception the large, almost architectonic enclosure, is broken down into clear geometric volumes. The elegant and enigmatic design was achieved by minimizing details such as the door handles, that are an integral part of the enclosure’s wedge shaped top edge. The cover handle has a transparent strip and allows for the light of the printing-head to shine through and hint on the process. Overall cost was reduced by using symmetric enclosure panels.
