Purple Platypus announces Fastest Lap Award

Purple Platypus, the exclusive reseller of Objet’s high resolution 3D printers in the Southwest, will be awarding a 3D Printed trophy to the fastest designer at the upcoming Designer Night at the Races(TM) events in Irvine and Torrance California.  Giving an award for the fastest lap makes total sense for Purple Platypus, according to Deanna Sciarra, Marketing Manager.  Not only is the full line of high resolution 3D printers from Objet Technologies capable of producing exquisite parts fast, Purple Platypus was ranked top 10 on Orange County Business Journal’s 100 Fastest-growing Private Companies List.

Objet’s ink-jet technology is currently being used by many design and engineering firms in the automotive industry today, as the detailed, high quality, true-to-life 3D models can help speed up a customer’s design cycle.  Companies like Honda, Kia, Toyota, Hyundai, Nissan, Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz have all found the Objet family of 3D printers to be helpful.

One of the key advantages of Objet’s systems is that almost 100 digital materials are available to custom tune the prototypes to your specific application.  Some of the machines can even produce prototypes made from different materials at the same time.  The combination of the range of materials and the multi-material equipment gives unique prototyping possibilities such as:

  • simulating an over-molded part with a rubber-like material
  • constructing see-thru parts with translucent materials
  • using an ABS-like material to simulate parts that require high-impact
