Webinar - 3D Printing Elastomers - Challenges & Solutions
Material Performance. Part size. Cost. Throughput speed. The challenges to 3d printing elastomers have solutions and we have the case study to prove it.

Each printing platform (SLS, SLA, FDM, etc..) has challenges and benefits in printing elastomers. We present DLP printing as a leading solution to additive manufacturing of flexible parts and products.

In the past, it has been nearly impossible to additively manufacture elastomeric materials with rubber and polyurethane-like performance. Fused filament fabrication and Selective laser sintering printing of elastomeric thermoplastics result in properties and parts that are suited for prototyping not end use performance. DLP™ and stereolithography printing typically require viscous materials that have low elasticity, poor tear strength and little strain capacity. FDM printing has Z-axis issues and is limited in production speed by the number of print heads.

This webinar will present DLP printing and Adaptive3D's Elastic ToughRubber products as a leading solution to the challenges of functional material performance, limited part sizes, high cost of production and low throughput speeds. We will introduce Adaptive3D's new Shore A elastomeric photopolymer Elastic ToughRubber 70™ and present a case study of how it is already used in consumer products.
