Flexible Resin

Our Functional Resin for Tactile Applications

Flexible is versatile, tactile, and impact-resistant. Push the boundaries of 3D printing by creating parts that are bendable and compressible. Flexible resin is excellent for prototyping, product design, and engineering. Learn more about using flexible resin.

Capture incredible detail when printing precise models, or create tactile parts that benefit from a pliable material.

Strength & Precision

Its compression characteristics make this impact-resistant resin ideal for custom gaskets, grips, and flexible joints.

Surface Finish

Smooth finish perfect for tactile interfaces, wearables, and prototyping.

Handling & Safety

Our resins have been designed to be as safe as possible, but nevertheless, working with them requires care, similar to working with common adhesives or household cleaners. They do not have volatile solvents so special ventilation is not required, though skin contact should be avoided.
