Broad Range of Materials

Advanced material capability is an advantage and focus of 3D Systems Figure 4 solutions. While many currently available materials require lengthy photo- and heat-curing processes, 3D Systems’ new functional plastics only require printing and curing in bright light, making the entire process ultra-fast. Each product in the portfolio is capable of printing biocompatible materials, as well as materials with elastomeric properties. The materials feature the same durability as traditionally manufactured parts. The result is a level of accuracy and surface finish unlike any other currently available materials.

3D Systems’ Material Design Center has over 30 years of proven R&D experience and process development expertise. The production-grade materials available for Figure 4 will include a broad range of industrial, dental and custom materials to enable true replacement of injection molding and urethane casting.
