About the Material

Rubber-Like is one of the unique printing capabilities of PolyJet machines because of the PhotoPolymer resin used in this style of printing. The prints will give you full flexibility of parts and allow you to simulate rubbers between Shore 27A and Shore 90A. This material, however, will not give you the same elastomeric properties you are used to in rubbers.

Rubber-Like is also great for testing overmolds, as the PolyJet machines can easily print one body in rubber and another in rubber without any seams.

+/- 0.004” or +/- 0.001” per inch, whichever is greater

Internal Cavities

Internal cavities are highly discouraged with RubberLike due to the water-based support material that will swell and change the geometry overtime if left inside. Note that support material that has no direct line of sight inside a cavity cannot be cleaned out.

Text Guidelines

Text should be embossed by at least 1.0 mm to stay visible after printing. Text should also be at least 1.5 mm thick in all areas.
