Glass-Filled Nylon

Glass-Filled Nylon (GF) or PA3200 is a reinforced material (polyamide-12 + 30 % Glass-Filled). GF is off-white in color and comes with an inherent grainy surface finish. Since GF parts are fabricated in Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology, there is no support structure generation, making it suitable for parts which… Continue reading

PP-equivalent plastic

PP-equivalent plastic is a resin-based material simulating the properties of Polypropylene. It is opaque in nature and comes in a milky white color. The parts have an inherent smooth surface finish. Since PP-equivalent parts are fabricated in Stereolithography (SLA) technology, there is support structure generation under the overhanging and protruding features.… Continue reading

PC-equivalent plastic

PC-equivalent plastic is translucent (50–60% transparency) and comes with an inherent smooth surface finish. PC-equivalent plastic is a resin-based material simulating the properties of Polycarbonate. It is translucent (50–60% transparency) and comes with an inherent smooth surface finish. Since PC-equivalent parts are fabricated in Stereolithography (SLA) technology, there is support structure… Continue reading

abs material properties

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene or ABS, as it commonly referred to, is a widely used thermoplastic throughout the industry. ABS material comes in the form of a filament and is processed in Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology. ABS material is white in color but also comes in varied filament color options. Since ABS… Continue reading

An Introduction to Polyjet Technology

Polyjet is a proprietary technology by Stratasys. Polyjet, as the name suggests, (poly=many) consists of an array of jets(nozzles) mounted on the print-head. These jets have an aperture diameter of approx. 22–28 microns. The layer thickness in Polyjet technology goes as fine as 16µm i.e 0.016mm. Polyjet process has support… Continue reading

Stereolithography (SLA)

Stereolithography (SLA) is the pioneer technology in the field of 3D Printing. The entire 3D Printing journey started with the advent of SLA. There are different variants of the Stereolithography technology with respect to how the parts are fabricated — top-down, bottom-up, CLIP etc. But the setup is almost same… Continue reading

Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)

Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) is a filament based 3D Printing technology. It is one of the most widely available and one of the most cost-effective 3D printing technologies till date. An FFF 3D Printer consists of an extruder, a nozzle, and a platform. The 3D CAD file is input to… Continue reading
