3D Systems Injection Moulded
A man is only as good as his word and a 3D printer is only as good as its material. While the material in the majority of extruding desktop printers stays largely at an ABS/PLA standstill, industrial printers materials get stronger, more flexible, lighter, more durable and just generally better day by day.
3D Systems have announced their latest UV Curable material for their ProJet 3500/3510 printers. VisiJet M3 Black is designed to be as like injection-moulded material as possible and is available immediately.
“VisiJet M3 Black material is a revolutionary breakthrough in ProJet plastic materials,” said Buddy Byrum, Vice President of Product and Channel Management for 3D Systems. “VisiJet M3 Black parts have the toughness and durability for rigorous testing and direct end use. When used in assemblies with other high performance materials like VisiJet M3 X, VisiJet M3 Black allows for design and testing capabilities that are unparalleled.”
The benefit of the VisiJet M3 material being close to injection moulded material means more companies can use printers for final products as opposed to rapid prototyping; this after all is the Holy Grail of 3D printing.
