ABS is a plastic material that's great for mechanical strength and early stage rough prototypes. ABS is a cost-effective material for initial prototyping applications, and with post-processing options it can offer better surface finish than PLA.
ABS-like is our closest representation of injection molded ABS in a 3D printed material. It has the same high resolution appearance as VeroWhite, but the material is much stronger and more durable.
Accura 25 is a durable and flexible SLA 3D printing material. It’s ideal for snap-fit part designs, as a master pattern for urethane casting, and conceptual modeling. Accura 25 can be used for functional prototyping or end-use parts and has excellent resolution, dimensional accuracy, and can be primed and painted after printing.
Accura ClearVue is a translucent material with a good balance of aesthetic and physical properties. 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.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) Nylon is a synthetic 3D printed polymer material that’s strong, durable and also has some flex to it. As a result, Nylon is a great material choice for snap fits, brackets, clips, and spring features. SLS Nylon is most cost effective in lower quantities compared with MJF Nylon.
PA 12 is used with HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF). It has excellent flexural strength and heat deflection properties and is a great choice for both end-use production parts and functional prototypes. PA 12 is also available with glass beads for a higher degree of stiffness and dimensional stability. MJF is a highly cost effective process at high quantities in the hundreds.
PETG (Polyethylene terephthalate glycol) is a useful 3D printing material for mechanical early-stage prototypes. It’s a great option that merges the cost-effectiveness of PLA and functionality of ABS. Although not ideal for aesthetics, this material is known for its impact resistance, warpage resistance, low shrinkage rate and high head deflection temperature.
PLA is a great 3D printing material for early stage prototyping on simple geometry parts, made out of biodegradable corn starch. Because this material is relatively cheap, you can cost effectively 3D print multiple iterations of an early stage part design.
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.
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.
VeroClear is a quick-turn translucent material, fabricated using PolyJet 3D printing technology. It works great to replicate clear parts or create light pipes which need to diffuse light over a distance.
