PC

Polycarbonate

Polycarbonate is very strong and rigid. Choose PC in tooling applications for the highest performing printed parts, or for lightweight machine components.

This material also features excellent impact strength and heat resistance, and can be machined after printing.

Nylon

Nylon is very tough and retains some flex. It is an ideal choice for piping fixtures due to it's low chemical reactivity, and can be used for parts with live hinges thanks to it's fatigue strength.

Nylon can be machined and tapped after printing. Avoid printing models with a lot of small details, and ensure thin walls are kept above 1.5mm thick to prevent warping.

TPE

Thermoplastic Elastomer

TPE is a unique rubber-like material with a grippy, soft exterior. Choose TPE for gaskets, equipment feet, stop pads, and flexible components.

This material does not stretch like a rubber band, but has some compressibility. Avoid models with small details.
