About the material

Accura ClearVue is a translucent material with a good balance of aesthetic and physical properties. Comparable to machined Polycarbonate, this material has substantial durability, considerable moisture resistance, and a smooth surface finish. Additionally, Accura ClearVue with Clear Coat can achieve the highest level of transparency out of our material offerings. It’s the most suitable for high clarity applications, like optics, packaging, and visualization models or assemblies.

Material Properties

Tensile Strength

52 MPa (7542 psi)

Elongation at Break

6%

Modulus of Elasticity

2330MPa (338 ksi)

Flexural Strength

83 MPa (12038 psi)

Material Finish

Accura ClearVue has a semi-glossy texture. It is translucent and colorless. Accura ClearVue can also be post-processed with a Clear Coat finish. Parts with this coating applied are basically transparent with a glossier texture.

Design Recommendations

Max Part Size [x, y, z]

10 x 10 x 10 inches
(254 x 254 x 254 mm)

Min Clearance + Gaps for Fit

0.5 mm between parts that need to be assembled
0.2 mm between shells of an interlocking part

Min Wall Thickness

1 mm

Text Guidelines

Embossed features should be at least 0.1 mm from the surface below. Debossed features should be at least 0.4 mm wide to avoid the opposing walls from fusing together.
