3D printing and prototyping is the process of making three dimensional objects from a digital file. The actual creation of a 3D printed object is the result of using the additive manufacturing process, which is the laying down of layer by layer material forming the object.
Research & Development of new products is the most economical method for companies to test new idea. Form, fit and function can easily be done by using 3D printing by simply drafting new concepts in CAD design software and connecting with a 3D print service bureau those concepts can be 3D printed and tested. Using 3D print saves time and money.
In addition to new products, 3D printed parts can be ideal for low volume production grade parts. Tooling up for injection mold but not ready for the large volume parts, 3D printed parts can provide an options for repeatable low volume parts for new product launches or end of life or product obsolesce needs.
Wash cycle to remove support material
PLA a renewable plastic material offered as a low cost material option for fast draft part iterations.
Ideal for quick concept verification and design development offering good tensile strength and available in a wide range of colors.
UV-Stable, production grade thermoplastic. Provides the ability to consistently build high quality parts with exceptional UV stability and the best aesthetics of any FDM thermoplastic.
UV resistance makes it ideal for attractive prototypes in consumer sporting goods, tools and automotive components and accessories.
Ideal material for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping, manufacturing tools and production parts. Superior tensile, impact and flexible strength than standard ABS.
Layer bonding is significantly stronger for more durable part resulting in more realistic functional tests higher quality parts for end use.
Thermoplastic polyurethane with a shore A value of 92. Material has high elongation, superior toughness, durability and abrasion resistance.
FDM TPU 92A brings the benefits of elastomers to FDM 3D printing and offers the capability to quickly produce large and complex elastomer parts.
Typical applications include flexible hoses, tubes, air ducts, seals, protective covers and vibration dampeners.
Nylon is very strong and durable. Ideal for 3D printing mechanical parts and protective components. It also has a low friction coefficient.
Strength, Flexible and Durable
A thermoplastic filament that combines the strength of ECO-ABS, some flexibility of Nylon and the easy printability of PLA.
Very durable and temperature resistant providing ideal option for 3D printing mechanical parts and protective components along with large objects since it doesn't warp.
