PolyJet Materials and Uses: Tips and Tricks

12 4 Intermediate
Materials are critical to prototyping and production success. At the heart of any great application is the right material: one that performs as needed under the application’s conditions. This is just as true for 3D printing as it has always been for molding, machining, and casting. While the 3D printing industry has a wide variety of materials to choose from, ranging from plastic to metal and wax to paper, the selection is often quite limited for a given technology. It is even more restricted for specific 3D printers, with one exception.

How to Remove FDM Support Material

7 0 Intermediate
FDM (fused deposition modeling) Technology lets you 3D print parts in a broad range of well tested plastics. FDM materials offer specialized properties like toughness, electrostatic dissipation, translucence, biocompatibility, UV resistance, VO flammability and FST ratings. This makes them perfect for demanding designers and engineers in aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, medical and other industries.
