Announcing Tough Resin

We’re excited to announce the latest addition to our family of functional resins. Tough Resin produces sturdy, ABS-like prints ready to withstand high stress or strain. It’s perfect for rugged prototypes for engineering challenges that require durable, impact resistant prints.

To celebrate the launch and to demonstrate the many functional properties of Tough Resin, we’ve built a Rube Goldberg machine, printing many of the major mechanisms with Tough Resin on the Form 1+ SLA 3D Printer.

Parts printed in Formlabs’ Tough Resin deliver a superior combination of yield strength, elongation, and impact resistance; the key characteristics used to assess material toughness.

Tough Resin Contest
We hosted a contest to hear your ideas about what you’ll use Tough Resin to create. Check out the winners here.

Formlabs White Paper: Post-Curing Prints
We set out to study the post-cure process in detail in order to optimize final mechanical properties of printed parts. Download the white paper to learn more.
