About the Material

Vero is a high resolution 3D printing material that's excellent for checking your prototype's fit and accuracy. With its 16 micron resolution, this material works great for visual models, especially if they require painting.

Vero is printed using PolyJet 3D printing technology, meaning that parts are made from a photopolymer resin and cured with a UV light. This is quite different from typical printing methods of of heating plastics or using a laser, which can lead to warpage or shrinkage on larger parts.

Material Finish

VeroWhite is our high resolution 3D printed material. The material finish is an opaque white and is perfect for visual models and checking the fit and features of your prototype. The layering or stepping is minimally visible due to the color and high resolution of this manufacturing process.

Design Recommendations

Max Part Size [x, y, z]

Min Clearance + Gaps for Fit

Min Wall Thickness

490 × 390 × 200 mm 
19.3 × 15.4 × 7.9 in
0.2 mm offset on each wall is the recommended gap for enclosures.
 1.0 mm for guaranteed parts
0.5 mm minimum

Internal Cavities

Internal cavities are highly discouraged with VeroClear 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.

Threads & Inserts

For Vero, we recommend you use either press or heat inserts. For more information, check out our article on The Best Fasteners for 3D Printed Parts.

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.

Tolerance

Tolerance for Vero is +/- 0.004”, or +/- 0.001” per inch, whichever is greater.
