We've been pretty disappointed with the tear strength of the Tango
materials, run on a Eden 500, but it is useful to be able to directly
print an elastomeric material. Regards, Bob

Anyone else on this list with experience with the new Connex 500.
Curious to know how the material properties are coming out.

        Hi Tom


        IPF are expecting the delivery of a Connex500 next month, the
first in the U.K I believe.


        I'd like to ask how the installation of your machine went and if
there has been any teething problems? Also have you been able to combine
prints with the TangoPlus (27 shore) as a digital material?


        One last question, has the U.S welcomed the introduction of
Objet's 3D printers? I know SLA is still the main provider of RP's but
wondered if 3D prints were becoming more popular?


        Best Regards

        We just finished the set up of a Connex 500 multi-material
        printer. So far the results have been outstanding. Printing
        two different materials at the same time and producing models of
        high quality is a dream come true. WOW
