Sky News Report on 3D Printing Airs Today; Features Objet30 Desktop 3D Printer
REHOVOT, Israel, May 25, 2012/PRNewswire/ --
Objet Ltd. [http://www.objet.com ], the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid
prototyping [http://www.objet.com/rapid_prototyping ] and additive manufacturing, features
in a Sky News report on 3D printing today. In an interview with Professor Richard Hague,
Director of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Additive Manufacturing (which
will be led by the University of Nottingham from July 1st), Sky News reveals how 3D
printing is used in the process of design optimization.

OPS. "I'd like the Sky News viewers to understand some of the incredible capabilities of
3D printing," comments Professor Hague. "In particular, my focus with the research we do
at the EPSRC Centre is on multi-functional 3D printing, 3D printing with metals and the
design freedoms that can be achieved with these processes. The time-lapse footage
demonstrates the concept of 3D printing very simply. Then, to illustrate the
multi-functional aspect, I use - amongst others - parts printed with the Objet Connex
multi-material 3D printer [http://www.objet.com/3D-Printer/Objet_Connex_Family ] which
have been embedded with conductive, optical or biological tracks - so viewers can imagine
the real-life and potential applications made possible by this technology."
