Rigid Resin for Stiffness and Precision

Rigid Resin is reinforced with glass to offer very high stiffness and a polished finish. This material is highly resistant to deformation over time and is great for printing thin walls and features.

  • Turbines and fan blades
  • Jigs, fixtures, and tooling
  • Manifolds
  • Electrical casings and automotive housings

Durable Resin for Low Friction and Wear

With low modulus, high elongation, and high impact strength, Durable Resin produces parts with a smooth, glossy finish and high resistance to deformation. Use this material for applications requiring minimal friction.

  • Consumer packaging
  • Bushings and bearings
  • Snap fits and flexures
  • Living hinges
