Resin

Pros: Cost-effective, smooth surface, water-resistant, ideal for validating product appearance and non-functional prototypes

Cons: Standard resin will slowly turn yellow and brittle over time under the sun light

Introduction

Resin models printed by SLA technology has very good details and smooth surface finish. But its mechanical properties are weaker compared to PLA’s. Since resin will turn brittle gradually over time, it is widely used for non-functional parts, such as validating the product’s appearance.

Capatibilities

Average Lead Time: 3 business days
Layer Height: 100 um
Dimensional Accuracy: ± 0.5% with a lower limit of ± 0.15 mm (± 0.006″)

Standard Resin

Tough Resin

Clear Resin


Nylon

Pros: Industrial strength, watertight, durable, good choice for functional and production ready parts.

Cons: More expensive than resin and PLA, but still cost-effective

Introduction

Nylon prints printed by either MJF or SLS technologies can be used as functional plastic parts with isotropic mechanical properties, making it ideal for detailed prototyping or end-use low-volume production.

Capabilities

Average Lead Time: 4 business days
Layer Height: 100 um
Dimensional Accuracy: ± 0.2% with a lower limit on ± 200μm (0.008”)

HP high reusability PA12

Standard Nylon (PA12)

Glass beads filled PA12


PLA

Pros: The most economic option for fast and durable 3d models.

Cons: Not as strong as nylon, layered look on the surface

Introduction

PLA (Polylactic acid), derived from renewable biomass, typically from fermented plant starch such as corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp is the most used bioplastics in the world. PLA is considered to be biodegradable and eco-friendly.

Capabilities

Average Lead Time: 3 business days
Layer Height: 50-200μm
Dimensional Accuracy: ± 0.5% with a lower limit of ± 0.5mm (0.02”)

Standard PLA

Starlight Series PLA

Metallic finish PLA

Architect Series PLA

Wood-filled PLA

Silk Series PLA


ABS

Pros: The economic option for fast and durable 3d models. ABS (FDM) has good mechanical properties, with excellent impact strength, superior to PLA

Cons: Requires strict condition to manufacture with FDM, wrap easily

Introduction

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a common thermoplastic polymer. Its glass transition temperature is approximately 105 °C (221 °F). The most important mechanical properties of ABS are impact resistance and toughness. ABS is also resistant to aqueous acids, alkalis, concentrated hydrochloric and phosphoric acids, alcohols and animal, vegetable and mineral oils

Capabilities

Average Lead Time: 3 business days
Layer Height: 50-200μm
Dimensional Accuracy: ± 0.5% with a lower limit of ± 0.1mm (0.004”)

Standard ABS


PETG

Pros: PETG is more durable and stronger and is impact resistant than ABS and PLA. High in chemical, fatigue and water resistance.

Cons: Glossy surface finish, little flexibility

Introduction

PETG is a glycol modified version of Polyethylene Terephthalate(PET), whilst the G is standing for “glycol-modified”. It is a semi-rigid material with good impact resistance. The material also benefits from great thermal characteristics, allowing the plastic to cool efficiently with almost negligible warpage, with glass transition temperature around 85°C

Capabilities

Average Lead Time: 3 business days
Layer Height: 50-200μm
Dimensional Accuracy: ± 0.5% with a lower limit of ± 0.1mm (0.004”)

Standard PETG


PEEK

Pros: One of the best performing thermoplastics in the world, with great high temperature performance, mechanical strength and excellent chemical resistance. Ideal for demanding applications such as aerospace, automotive, electrical, medical etc

Cons: High in price
