Check Out Objetís 3D Printed Designs From Euromold 2012

Objet is at Euromold 2012 this week, and has already made headlines with the announcement of its massive Objet1000 3D printer ó 1000 x 800 x 500 mm build volume that will allow creators and industry specialists to create anything and everything. Objet says that the printer will be most useful in in making 1:1 scale models of cars, airplanes, household appliances and much more.

Now the company is on the show floor showing off its latest innovations in 3D printing including a full-size golf club printed on the new Objet1000. WebPro News reports.

-- Much like its previous ship in a bottle print job, the guys at Objet have also made a black motorcycle encased in transparent plastic. It shows off the Objet Connex printerís ability to create multi-material objects in a single print job.

-- And finally, a full-sized golf club that was printed on the Objet1000. The Objet1000 is a Connex machine so it can print in multiple materials in the same print job. It lets the designers use a rubbery material for the grip, a white material for the shaft, and a light gray material for the clubhead.quotesmarksleft.jpg
