- New CADMatrix(TM) Add-In Allows direct Control of 3D Model Material
Preferences for Connex(TM) Printing, Streamlining Multi-Part, Multi-Material
Design Process

Objet Geometries Ltd.(, the innovation leader in 3D
printing (, today announced a new add-in for SolidWorks(R)
2009 computer-aided design (CAD) software, CADMatrix(TM).

Available free of charge at the Objet Web site
(, the new CADMatrix(TM)
add-in enables designers and engineers to seamlessly assign Objet model
materials to multi-part, multi-material designs within SolidWorks, thus allowing
for increased control of 3D model validation.

The CADMatrix(TM) software for SolidWorks 2009 is designed specifically for
users of Objet’s groundbreaking Connex(TM)
( systems, the first to allow
simultaneous printing of several materials with different mechanical and
physical properties. Based on Objet’s revolutionary PolyJet Matrix(TM)
technology, the Connex(TM) affords new time and price efficiencies in product
development and manufacturing.

We are proud to partner with Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp. to bring this
great new capability to the SolidWorks design community, said Amit Shvartz, VP
Marketing at Objet. The Connex(TM) was the first 3D system to access the world
of multi-material printing, an opportunity never before available. Now the
introduction of CADMatrix(TM) takes this opportunity to a whole new level,
allowing leading designers using SolidWorks to assign materials for the Connex
directly in the design software platform.

Enhancing Capabilities for Multi-Material Designs

Using an intuitive three-step wizard, the new CADMatrix(TM) add-in guides users
in assigning different materials to different parts of the design. Once the
assignment process is completed, the add-in produces a ready-to-print Objet
Digital Format (ObjDF) file, which can be sent by e-mail or exported for
printing on the Connex(TM). As a result, designers and engineers can reduce
design cycles and the need for reprints, speeding up the 3D printing process and
ensuring greater model integrity as definitions are immediately implemented
inside the design.

SolidWorks 2009 expands on the software’s history of ease of use, design
power and affordability by allowing design teams to spend more time on
innovation and less on CAD software operations, ultimately making their
companies more successful. The software helps companies design better products
more quickly and easily through an array of unique features, including more than
260 customer-driven enhancements and significant innovations that break new
ground in engineering efficiency. SolidWorks 2009 delivers a dramatic increase
in speed, a reflection of an intensive effort focused directly on performance;
improved workflow and verification capabilities to improve product quality;
numerous drawing improvements; single-window, fully associative integration with
all SolidWorks software products and many additional enhancements that directly
satisfy customer requests.

Objet Geometries has built a strong reputation for delivering the innovative
rapid prototyping capabilities that many engineers need, said Nick Iwaskow,
Manager, Alliances at DS SolidWorks. Together, Objet and SolidWorks 2009 give
engineers the tools, design power, and ease of use to streamline product
development and design better products more quickly and effectively than ever
