One of the benefits of 3D printing parts using FDM technology is that designers and manufactures can print in common industry standard materials like ABS or Polycarbonate. FDM materials are generally strong and versatile plastics used in a wide range of industries and applications. Recently, Stratasys announced a full line of brand-new products designed to expand on their already wide range of 3D printing capabilities. One of the most exciting announcements in this product launch was the release of the ULTEM 1010 resin material, which can now be used in the Fortus 900mc 3D printer.
The range of new applications ULTEM 1010 creates is extremely broad. Automotive part designers can create better under-the-hood automotive functional prototypes that need to be strong, lightweight, and have a high heat resistance. Medical parts that have required steam autoclaving, such as surgical guides, can now be made quickly and in a more cost effective manner. The speed and detail of a 3D printer can now also be applied to the patterns and fixtures in the food production industry.
With the same soluble support structures as other FDM printer materials, ULTEM 1010 is a great option for those looking to print application-specific parts that need to meet specific application standards.To learn more about 3D printers, check out our site by clicking here.
