3D printing large and complex elastomer parts

Written by: Stratasys | Published:

The ability to 3D print parts in an elastomer material brings many potential opportunities to design and engineer flexible parts from seals to hoses to ducts. Stratasys offers the ability to print in a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that has a shore hardness (A) of 92, elongation of 500% and a tear strength of 84 KN/m.

The flexible material is ideal for prototyping highly functional, large, durable, complex elastomer parts. Available on Stratasys F123 3D printers, TPU 92A enables the ability to produce large elastomer parts that feature overhangs, cavities and complex geometries as if they were a finished product made using traditional processes.

Unlike other systems, the F123’s uses a soluble support material to enable highly complex parts to be easily printed. The support structure is also printed around the part, saving you any design compromise and hands-on removal, reducing costs and simplifying the prototype-to-product journey.

Parts printed with TPU 92A are highly durable and closely mimic the properties of TPU parts made by more traditional processes.
