  • Industrial-Grade Performance

    Dimensional precision, chemical compatibility, and mechanical and physical properties are
    critical factors for product validation and final-use components. Achieve production performance with digital eggshell molding or direct 3D printing using rubber-like and elastomer materials that offer pristine surface quality, texturing capability, detail fidelity and exceptional accuracy. Compare your material requirements with our broad portfolio of materials and thorough test data, including a 3D printing elastomer with up to 97 Shore A.

  • Reduce Tool Investment Risk, Directly Print Large Seal Prototypes and Production Parts

    Innovation in developing and validating large-scale seals and gaskets has long been limited by expensive tooling and long lead times.

    With our large-format extrusion 3D printers and broad range of flexible industrial polymers, you can now  iterate and optimize rubber and elastomer parts by directly printing them before finalizing your designs for production tooling.
