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.

How to Choose the Best Fasteners for 3D Printed Parts

We get a lot of questions about the best methods for fastening different 3D printed components. When prototyping hardware products — like electronics enclosures or robotic assemblies — you often need to design mating structures that are more complex than a single 3D printed component. Other times, you may need to print components larger than […]

CAD File Formats and How to Export Them for 3D Printing

There are a lot of CAD (computer-aided design) file types out there, each with its own names, formats, and parameters. From STEP files to STL files, to IGES and more, it can be difficult to differentiate between them. This article will help you understand the difference between these file types, and which are best for uploading […]
