SolidWorks for Multi-Material 3D Prints

Stratasys PolyJet-based machines built on Connex technology provide users with the unique ability to produce 3D printed models with multiple bodies, materials, and colors—all in a single build cycle. To take advantage of these benefits, each distinct body, material, or color must be represented by a dedicated, non-overlapping STL shell.

This white paper outlines a workflow to efficiently prepare and save SolidWorks parts and assemblies as STL files for import into Objet Studio (updated as of 2017).
