3D Printing in Standard Materials
Wide range of Standard Materials for Additive Manufacturing
Standard materials used in additive manufacturing include filaments like PLA and ABS, Formlabs general purpose resins (Clear, White, Grey, Black, Colour Kit, Draft, Grey Pro) and Markforged’s Precise PLA. PLA is derived from renewable materials and is biodegradable which makes it a perfect cost effective material for quick prototypes that can be recycled. Formlabs’ SLA (stereolithography) printers use thermoplastic materials in a resin form which is then solidified in layers by high-powered lasers. The beauty of additive manufacturing is the ease of access to materials. Ultimaker’s open access marketplace allows filament manufacturers to supply their materials with printer settings accessible via Ultimaker’s software, Cura.
Perfect for R&D and product design teams, we supply a range of standard materials ideal for quick mock-ups of functional prototyping.
