3D Printing

MATERIALS: RIGID PLASTICS

Rigid plastics are available for the production of prints in a variety of single to multiple colors.  Rigid plastics offer a cost effective way to visualize a 3D model quickly.

Currently available print materials/filaments:

ABS ‘NinjaTek’ [Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene]
ABS is a multipurpose material that is great for printing functional parts that require durability and moderate heat resistance. It is less brittle than PLA and is very tolerable to post-processing for smooth and glossy finishes.
• Tensile strength: 42 MPa; Shore A:
• AVAILABLE COLORS: Midnight Black, Snow White & Clear Water
• Available to print only on: Axiom Dual Extruder

PLA ‘NinjaTek’ [Polylactic Acid]
PLA is made from renewable natural resources, making it the most environmentally friendly 3D printing material available. It also has one of the most appealing printing profiles allowing for printing at low temperatures and high speeds while maintaining a high level of detail and exceptional print quality.
• Tensile strength: 26.4 MPa
• AVAILABLE COLORS: Midnight Black, Snow White & Clear Water
• Available to print only on: Axiom Dual Extruder

PC (Polycarbonate)  [Thermoplastic]
PC is a high temperature material with incredible strength and impact resistance. It has a high heat resistance, great layer to layer bonding, and provides an excellent finish when printed.  It is also heat resistance, flame-retardant, and insulates electricity.
• Tensile strength: 69.9 MPa
• AVAILABLE COLORS: 
• Available to print only on: Axiom Dual Extruder

VisiJet® PXL StrengthMax™ [PXL + one-part, fast acting adhesive infiltrant]
Two-part epoxy infiltrant, ideal for functional models to dramatically improve the strength.
• Tensile strength: 26.4 MPa
• AVAILABLE COLORS: 
• Available to print only on: ProJet CJP 460Plus

VisiJet® PXL ColorBond™ [PXL + two-part, high-strength epoxy infiltrant]
Quick-cure infiltrant, ideal for color models to improve strength and color vibrancy.
• Tensile strength: 14.2 MPa

• AVAILABLE COLORS: 
• Available to print only on: ProJet
CJP 460Plus

VisiJet® M2R [UV Curable plastic]
A high modulus (high resistance to being deformed elastically) rigid plastic.
• Tensile strength: 35-55 MPa; Shore A: N/A; Shore D: 77-8

• AVAILABLE COLORS: Opaque White, Opaque Black, Translucent Clear
• Available to print only on: ProJet CJP 460Plus
