Moldmaking with 3D Prints

By |2019-03-22T13:06:20-04:00March 22nd, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

Moldmaking with desktop 3D printing allows engineers and designers to get much more functionality from their 3D printer, beyond prototyping alone. Moldmaking opens a world of production materials and provides the ability to produce short-run batches and test mold designs prior to committing to expensive tooling.

Exploring the New Formlabs Elastic Resin

By |2019-01-30T08:26:59-04:00January 30th, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

Formlabs recently announced their latest material – Elastic Resin and this article will take a closer look at it. Soft silicone and urethane parts are typically produced through moldmaking. These materials must be both highly elastic and strong. 3D printing them was once only possible on expensive industrial machine, but with Elastic Resin, companies can now simulate molded silicone, making it possible to print soft, resilient prototypes right on the desktop. Elastic resin is Formlabs' most pliable material with a shore durometer of 50A and an Elongation of 160%. Due to its high elongation excellent tear strength, parts printed with [...]

Formlabs Announces New Elastic Resin Material

By |2019-01-09T08:04:41-04:00January 9th, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs, News / Promos|0 Comments

Formlabs just announced their latest new engineering resin. This soft engineering resin (50A Shore durometer) is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone that need to bend, stretch and compress. Due to its high elongation (160%) and good tear strength (19.1kN/m) it will hold up to repeated cycles without tearing. Elastic resin is also translucent which is ideal for healthcare and medical applications where visual simulation is required.

3D Printing For High Thermal Stability

By |2018-12-28T08:29:44-04:00December 28th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

Formlabs is pleased to announce the latest formulation of High Temp Resin, part of their library of Engineering Resins for the Form 2 desktop stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer. High Temp Resin offers the highest heat deflection temperature (HDT) among Formlabs resins and is suitable for printing detailed, precise parts with high thermal stability. The new formulation, shipping now, has an HDT of 238 °C @ 0.45 MPa and improved elongation to decrease brittleness. Over the course of the last year since Formlabs first released this material, they talked with a variety of engineers and product designers using it to better [...]

Introducing Castable Wax Resin for Sharp Detail and Clean Casting

By |2018-07-26T08:44:41-04:00July 27th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

Castable Wax Resin, the newest addition to the Formlabs library of Jewelry Resins for 3D printing, is now shipping. This wax-filled material is designed for reliable direct investment casting with zero ash content and clean burnout. Printed parts are suitable for both custom try-ons and final production. It combines sharp accuracy, smooth surface finish, and high green strength, making it our best all-around material for direct investment casting. The way jewelers work is changing and castable photopolymer resins are leading the way. From independent designers concepting and prototyping in their studios, to casting houses increasing capacity and diversifying their offerings, [...]

Custom 3D Printed Orthosis Helps Child Walk

By |2018-07-11T08:25:42-04:00July 11th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

Father Helps Son With Cerebral Palsy Walk With Custom 3D Printed Orthosis Seven years ago, Matej’s and Mateja’s son Nik was born one month prematurely. Due to difficulties during childbirth, he suffered severe brain damage that led to cerebral palsy. Despite the grim initial outlook, Nik was tremendously motivated to be mobile, but the symptoms of his condition prevented him from standing or walking on his own. Matej set out with a simple goal: to enable Nik to walk. Months of research and development followed, resulting in a custom-made, 3D printed orthosis that provides support and correction exactly where Nik [...]
