Explore the widest range of materials in the 3D printing world.
FDM Technology works with production-grade thermoplastics to build tough, durable parts that are accurate, repeatable and stable over time.
3D print your concept models, prototypes, tools and production parts in familiar materials like ABS, PC and high-performance ULTEM 1010 and ULTEM 9085.
Below you will see the Materials supplied and used in printing. The navigational bar below will direct you straight the material specification you are looking for, otherwise scroll down and read them all.
3D Printing With ABSplus
ABSplus offers a wide range of colors including ivory, white, black, dark gray, red, blue, olive green, nectarine and fluorescent yellow – plus the option for custom colors.
Parts 3D printed in this material are mechanically strong and stable over time. Because ABSplus works with soluble support materials, support removal is hands-free, and complex shapes and deep cavities require no extra effort.
3D Printing With ABS-M30
Engineered for 3D printing with FDM Technology, ABS-M30 is ideal for concept models and moderate-requirement parts including functional prototypes, jigs, fixtures, manufacturing tooling and production parts.
Colors include natural, white, black, dark gray, red and blue – plus the option for custom colors. For maximum unattended build time, all standard colors are available in Xtend 500 Fortus Plus boxes for compatible systems.
ASA is a production-grade thermoplastic that works beautifully with FDM Technology. Available in 10 fade-resistant colors, ASA combines mechanical strength and UV stability with the best part aesthetics FDM technology has to offer. Build enduring prototypes to test fit, form and function – or produce practical production parts for outdoor use. From electrical housings and brackets to sporting goods and automotive prototypes, ASA will give your designs a place in the sun.
ASA works with soluble support materials for easy, hands-free removal and can be used on all Performance 3D Production Systems. For Fortus 360mc, 380mc, 400mc, 450mc and 900mc, colors include red, orange, yellow, green, dark blue, white, dark gray, light gray, ivory and black.
3D Printing With FDM and Nylon 12
Hands work a 3D printed snap-fit nylon clip Nylon 12 parts built on a Fortus 3D Production System are the toughest in the industry, exhibiting 100-300 percent better elongation at break and superior fatigue resistance over any other additive manufacturing technology. Nylon offers the best Z-axis lamination and highest impact strength of any FDM thermoplastic, as well as excellent chemical resistance.
FDM Nylon 12 works on Fortus 900mc, Fortus 450mc, Fortus 400mc, Fortus 380mc and Fortus 360mc 3D Production Systems.
3D Printing With PC Thermoplastic
PC and FDM Technology produce functional prototypes, tooling and end-use parts in a familiar, durable engineering material. PC’s high tensile and flexural strength make it ideal for demanding prototyping needs, tooling and fixtures, and patterns for metal bending and composite work. Low-volume manufacturing and customization become feasible, and testing provides more confidence.
This material works with Fortus 360mc/400mc, Fortus 380mc/450mc and Fortus 900mc 3D Production Systems. For maximum unattended build time, it’s available in Xtend 500 Fortus Plus boxes for compatible systems.
3D Printing With PC-ISO
PC-ISO is a strong, heat-resistant engineering plastic commonly used in food and drug packaging and medical device manufacturing. It is biocompatible, gamma and EtO sterilizable and complies with ISO 10993 and USP Class VI.
This engineering thermoplastic works with breakaway support material. Fortus 400mc, Fortus 380mc/450mc and Fortus 900mc 3D Production Systems can build parts in PC-ISO.
3D Printing With ULTEM 1010
Available on the Fortus 900mc 3D Production System, ULTEM 1010 resin offers the highest heat resistance, chemical resistance and tensile strength of any FDM thermoplastic. It is the only FDM material with an NSF 51 food-contact certification, and it’s biocompatible with an ISO 10993/USP Class VI certification.
Produce large custom tools for metal, plastic or composite parts fabrication; 3D print medical tools like surgical guides that can withstand steam autoclaving; build temperature-resistant dies, patterns and fixtures for food production; even manufacture out-of-cabin aerospace components and under-the-hood automotive components including housings, ducts and semi-structural components.
ULTEM 1010 is available in natural and works with improved, easy-to-use breakaway support material.
3D Printing With ULTEM 9085
On the Fortus 400mc, Fortus 450mc and Fortus 900mc 3D Production Systems, ULTEM 9085 offers a well-vetted high-performance thermoplastic. Advanced applications include functional testing, manufacturing tooling and direct digital manufacturing of production parts — including aircraft interior components and ductwork.
This high-performance FDM thermoplastic expands the use of additive manufacturing into applications that demand thermal and chemical resistance. ULTEM 9085 works with breakaway support material and is available in tan and black.
