Better Material Properties For Better Prototypes

3D printing technology had been tremendously improving in the recent years, especially on materials enhancement, offering the ability to produce a more accurate 3D printed models quickly for prototyping to accelerate the design for R&D.

Introducing the new Figure 4 materials for durable and tough prototypes:

Figure 4 FLEX-BLK 20 is a durable and fatigue-resistant black plastic with the look and feel of production polypropylene.

Another material is Figure 4 RUBBER-BLK 10 that is great for high performance functional and tough applications that require soft-touch feel.

Figure 4 PRO-BLK 10 offers excellent surface quality and excellent mechanical properties for long-term environmental stability.

If you are looking for bio-compatible and thermal resistant materials, you can consider Figure 4 MED-WHT 10 and Figure 4 MED-AMD 10.

Figure 4 HI TEMP 300-AMB is an ultra-high temperature plastic with heat deflection temperature of over 300°C at both low and high stress.

Last but not least is Figure 4 EGGSHELL-AMB 10, a process-optimized material for the production of sacrificial tooling for casting silicone and other materials.
