Desktop 3D printer uses seven different materials

The Objet30 Pro 3D printer can use seven different materials, including clear transparent and high-temperature-resistant material. The rapid-prototyping device — which features a build-tray size of 300 × 200 × 150 mm — targets designers, the medical device industry, and consumer goods and electronics. The materials include clear transparent (Objet VeroClear) for simulating PMMA/glass; high-temperature material for heat-resistant, static functional testing; polypropylene like (Objet DurusWhite) for simulating snap-fit parts; and four rigid, opaque materials for standard plastic simulation (Objet Vero Family in black, white, gray, and blue).
