3D Printing. Rubber.

Fine Detail service. 3D Printing in Rubber Like materials.

 

3D Printing in simulated Rubber.  'Fine Detail' service.

 

Our simulated 'Rubber' 3D printing materials are intended for projects needing materials with rubber like or specific tactile properties.

3D Printing your designs using our Fine Detail service gives you a simulated Rubber in a range of Shore A values using the Polyjet Digital Material technology.  The Polyjet 3D printing process produces your designs  with a smooth surface finish and is ideal for fit and form testing and confirming designs. 

Using this process you can produce designs which combine both rigid and flexible elements as Digital Material technology blends 2 materials to 3D Print your design.

If you need to 3D print components for 'end use' applications we suggest the Rubber in our Strong and Durable service,  or enquire about our Vac Casting service.

Different Shore A Values. Mix and Match.

Tango Black PLUS is the base flexible material with a shore A hardness value of 27. Combined with the rigid Vero White Plus material the process gives you a choice of stepped choice of Shore A values through 27, 40, 50, 60, 70, 85 & 95.

 

Our Fine Detail Rubber Like 3d printing service gives you the option to produce different versions of your design in the same build, with different Shore A values, so reducing the unit price. Mix and Match Shore A values or different versions and evaluate a broader range of options for your designs.

 

Stand Alone Rubber Like Materials.

In addition to the default rubber like digital materials we also offer optional stand alone Rubber like materials. Stand alone Rubber Like materials under our Fine Detail service come into their own for larger designs which require 3D printing on large format machines and we can accommodate designs which fit into a 490mm x 390 x 200mm build envelope.

Technical.

  • Minimum reccomended feature detail or wall thickness of 1mm.
  • Temperature Resistance not published.
  • Build Volume (Digital Materials, mixed Shore A values) 255 x 252 x 200mm
  • Build Volume (Stand Alone, on demand)  490 x 390 x 200mm

Rubber Like materials printed via our Fine Detail service give designers a material with good flexibility and are ideal for use to confirm designs and proof of concept. However, continuous flexing may cause parts to shear or tear and flexibility may reduce over time and in cool environments.
