Reposted from Stratasys Blog 29 Jan. 2015 by Laurie Carr Color ASA Thermoplastics allow you to bypass further painting or finishing steps, saving time and money Endur Digital Materials are ideal for challenging geometries and repetitive testing – produce durable prototypes with thin walls, living hinges, snap-fits and moving or assembled parts Stratasys’ tenacious new 3D printing materials allow you to produce more durable prototypes for repetitive testing and tough, color-matched assembly tools as well as end use parts more efficiently and cost-effectively than traditional manufacturing technologies. Think in Color with FDM’s ASA Thermoplastic Technology The increase in demand for robust applications with UV-resistant capabilities has quickly established ASA as a popular all-purpose material in additive manufacturing. Stratasys is bringingeight new colors to the ASA product line: red, orange, yellow, green, dark blue, white, dark gray, and light gray. Applications ranging from tooling and sporting goods to consumer products and automotive end-use parts stand to benefit from the new vibrant color ASA materials. Engineers and manufacturers now have the ability to create end-use parts, functional prototypes, and jigs and fixtures in a variety of rich colors with strong, durable mechanical properties. Whether a manufacturer is measuring the effectiveness of color [...]
