Announcing Formlabs Engineering Resins

The new resins simulate a range of injection-molded plastics, covering the full spectrum of properties required to conceptualize, prototype, test, and manufacture successful final products.

Tough

Tough was designed to simulate ABS plastic, with comparable tensile strength and modulus. Perfect for functional prototyping, this sturdy, shatter-resistant material has been developed to withstand high stress and strain.

  • Snap-fit joints
  • Assemblies
  • Rugged prototypes

 

High Temp has an HDT of 289 °C @ 0.45 MPa—the highest on the 3D printing materials market. This material is great for static applications that will undergo higher temperatures. High Temp can also be used for production processes such as casting and thermoforming.

  • Mold prototyping
  • Heat resistant fixtures
  • Hot air and fluid flow
  • Environmental testing

 

Durable was designed to simulate polypropylene (PP) plastic, with comparable low modulus and high-impact strength. Use this wear-resistant, ductile material when parts require deformation and a smooth, glossy finish.

  • Prototyping consumer products
  • Packaging
  • Low-friction and low-wear moving parts
  • Living hinges
