Solving Soft Material Components Prototyping Challenges with 3D Printing
Rapid Design Iteration
With 3D Systems’ solutions capable of 3D printing prototypes in less than 24 hours, OEMs can optimize their workflow to reduce the time between design iterations, enabling rapid order fulfillment and faster time-to-market. Digital eggshell molding allows you to get true silicone parts in as fast as 24 hours. For the fastest turnaround, biocompatible and chemical-resistant elastomeric components can be directly 3D printed in minutes.
Accuracy, precision, and mechanical properties are critical factors for product validation and end-use components. Achieve production performance with both digital eggshell molding and direct 3D printing, as they offer pristine surface quality, texturing capability, detail fidelity, and exceptional accuracy.
Best-In-Class Material Properties
To validate your design, digital eggshell molding is compatible with most standard silicones, both tin and platinum based. Our elastomeric materials for 3D printing have excellent tear-resistance for form and fit testing. Further, they are biocompatible and have chemical resistance to hydrocarbons and cleaning chemicals (tested for sealed and surface contact compatibility per ASTM D543 and USCAR2).
Our end-to-end additive manufacturing solutions are designed to deliver industry-leading quality, reliability, and productivity to keep your operation running efficiently for high-volume production of prototypes, bridge manufacturing, and mass customization. Maximized uptime, reduced labor enabled by downstream compatibility with automation, and minimized waste contribute to a lower cost per part and high manufacturing yield.
