Objet Geometries Ltd is engaged in the design, development and manufacture of photopolymer 3D printing systems. The company is based in Rehovot, Israel and was incorporated in 1999. They hold patents on a number of associated printing materials that are used in PolyJet and PolyJet Matrix polymer jetting technologies.

The company distributes 3D printers worldwide through wholly owned subsidiaries in the United States, Europe, and Hong Kong. Objet Geometries owns more than 50 patents and patent pending inventions.

Technology

The Polyjet matrix 3D printing technology uses simultaneous jetting of multiple types of modeling materials to create a single piece 3D model. Measured by global sales, the process is the leading platform for high-resolution 3D printing.[citation needed] PolyJet is used by automotive, electronics, consumer goods, medical development, and clothing manufacturers, as well as for creating 3D models for use in movies such as Coraline.[citation needed]

The Eden line of 3D Printing Systems and the Alaris30 3D desktop printer are based on the PolyJet technology. The Connex family of 3D printers is based on PolyJet Matrix technology, which jets multiple model materials simultaneously and creates composite Digital Materials on the fly. All Objet systems use FullCure polymers.

Patents

Objet owns more than 50 patents and patent pending inventions:

Partnerships

Objet Geometries has partnered with SolidWorks to interface their computer-aided design software with Objet’s Connex500 system. The co-developed software add-in allows significantly more control over end to end modelling preferences.

Awards

Frost & Sullivan recognized Object Geometries in 2008 with their Annual Excellence Award [1]

In 2009, Objet's Alaris desktop 3D printer was recognized with the Plastpol Award at the annual plastics show in Poland.[2][dead link]
