High Temperature

3D Printing

High Temperature

High Temperature, manufactured by Formlabs Ltd., is a resin based material compatible with desktop Stereolithography (SLA) technology. One of the highlights of this material is its high Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) of 289˚C @ 0.45 MPa, which is incomparable with any other 3D Printing material currently available in the market.

The material has a light-yellowish color and has an inherent smooth surface finish despite support structure generation. The material is best suited for applications experiencing high temperatures with minimal loading. The material is NOT flexible, thereby it is unsuitable for applications requiring snap fits and live hinges.

High Temperature Design Guidelines

Wall thickness

  • For a given part geometry, the minimum wall thickness should be at least 1mm.
  • For rigid wall: 1.5 mm

Minimum detail size

  • The minimum supported feature thickness: At least 0.8 mm

Support Structures

  • Since High Temperature parts are fabricated in desktop Stereolithography (SLA) technology, support structures are generated on part geometries with overhangs and unsupported features.

Embossing and Engraving:

  • Recommended fonts for a clear, legible text: Arial, Gothic.
  • Letter strand width: at least 0.6mm
  • Embossing height: at least 0.5mm
  • Engraving (cavity) depth: at least 0.5mm

Overhangs

  • If the length of the wall is greater than 50mm (5 cm), then a minimum wall thickness of 2mm should be kept to impart decent strength.
