Remarks

Based on Objet’s proven PolyJet™ Photopolymer Jetting Technology. 
Models produced with this material are smoothly surfaced and finely detailed; the strong model material and highly accurate printing enable thin walls and small moving parts. The models are ideal for painting, functional, fit and form testing, and vacuum forming.

0.254mm (0.010 inches)

 

Remarks

This uses a process called fusion deposition modeling which uses a single jet rather than multiple jets, a bit like a tube of toothpaste. The material is an ABS plastic that we would recommend using for objects that require strength, but don't require any fine details or a smooth surface finish. Models will have a slight stepped surface and any features with a wall thickness of less than 1.4mm may not be solid.

Remarks

A high performance plaster based material. Ideal for presentation models and very limited functional testing. Part strength is approximately 10 MPa, so we wouldn’t recommend this material for any high strength applications or hollowing out of the models.
