Objet 3D Printer Solutions for Rapid Prototyping
OPS are the UK and Ireland’s official distributor of Objet 3D printers. Based in the centre of the UK, we provide sales of Objet Desktop, Eden and Connex 3D printing solutions.
Objet printers are the latest step in rapid prototyping. They provide a faster, more cost effective and cleaner alternative to traditional rapid prototyping solutions. This performance is more than matched by their quality, with industry-leading 16 micron print layers, meaning a smoother finish and higher accuracy. If you are looking for a cost-effective, fast, high quality system, the case is closed.
Want to know more about the incredible models that Objet machines can produce? Then just call us on +44 (0)1283 585955 for a free rapid prototype from your own 3D CAD output.
Objet's strategy is not to dominate a market, but to provide every 3D printer user with the edge to dominate in his own market. They have the accuracy and resolution needed for defence and medical applications, the smoothness and complexity to impress makers of jewellery and toys. Electronics, sporting goods - any application where an object is designed, refined, produced for a customer to use benefits from the prototyping technology of an Objet 3D printer.
Before the advent of Computer Aided Design (CAD) or 3D printing, time-to-market was a footrace for everyone. CAD systems cut a lot of time out of the process, and those who implemented it took the lead. Objet offers manufacturers worldwide another opportunity to move forward with rapid prototyping thanks to their 3D printing technology.
Rapid prototyping refers to the production of a model by mechanical means rather than manual creation, greatly reducing the time required to translate a design into a market-ready product. Objet is at the forefront of this new wave, and users of its 3D printers will leap ahead of their competitors.
Objet 3D printing solutions greatly reduce the time required to produce a model by directly translating a design into a mechanically produced model that is ready for testing, even using more than one material. This is rapid prototyping, done in a unit that can be placed directly in the work area of the designer, allowing greater collaboration between designers, marketers and corporate decision-makers. In a design environment equipped with Objet 3D printers, an idea can be thoroughly vetted before any investment is made in complex injection molds or other risky manufacturing processes.
Objet 3D printers are already used around the world. Wherever a product is manufactured, designs can be produced on its 3D printers and tested in the same facility. The ability to perform rapid prototyping with multiple materials also means, for example, that a cover may be produced along with its gasket, and immediately checked for a fit in the product that is being manufactured. A hinge is created that pivots right out of the machine, or a rigid part comes out already coated with a layer of a flexible, more touch-friendly material. In this way, changes can be implemented quickly and with minimal cost and downtime.
