Printing Bitmaps on Objet Connex printer?


#1

Once bitmap slices are exported, what is the workflow for printing the model on a polyjet printer? In our shop we have an Objet260 Connex3 printer.

The Objet Studio software doesn’t seem to be set up for accepting images to send to the printer but based on these images I’m seeing, it seems to be possible.

Yes… unfortunately this is a bit of problem at the moment. Basically you need to have a special hardware dongle in order to access their specific software that allows you to print from bitmaps. Historically, Stratasys only allowed certain academic institutions to have access to this for R&D purposes… although you’d have to reach out to them to see if you might be able to obtain a dongle for your purposes. HTH.
