3D Printing Materials

Name

Description

Image placeholder
PLA
High stiffness, good detail, affordable. PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic for low-cost, non-functional prototyping. Greater detail than ABS, but more brittle. Unsuitable for high temperatures.
Image placeholder
Standard Resin
High-detail resin that produces parts with a smooth, injection mold-like surface finish. It is brittle and used for non-functional parts.
Image placeholder
Nylon 12 SLS
A durable polymer material that is strong, with balanced mechanical properties and fine feature surface resolution. Durable parts without tooling, excellent heat & chemical resistance.

Nylon 12 MJF
Discover enhanced production possibilities of Nylon 12 (PA 12) utilized with the speed possible with Multi Jet Fusion. With good chemical resistance and low moisture absorption, Nylon 12 is ideal for high-volume functional prototypes & limited-run production.

Stainless Steel Cx
A tooling grade steel characterized having a good corrosion resistance combined with high strength and hardness. Great for Injection moulding tools and other industrial applications.

3D Printing processes

FDM

FDM is the most widely available 3D printing process, mainly used for low-cost prototyping and design verification with very fast turn around times.


Learn more
SLA

SLA is most suitable for visual applications where an injection mold-like, smooth surface finish, and a high level of feature detail are required.


Learn more
SLS

SLS is used for both prototyping and small-batch production of functional plastic parts with good mechanical properties.


Learn more
MJF

HP's Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) can be used for both prototyping and small-batch-production of functional plastic parts.


Learn more
DMLS

DMLS/SLM produce high performance, end-use metal 3D printed parts for industrial applications in aerospace, automotive and medical.
