Introducing the toughest ever PolyJet material: Digital ABS Plus

Written by: Stratasys GmbH | Published:

Stratasys has released the latest ground-breaking advance in PolyJet material technology: Digital ABS Plus. The toughness of the material makes it ideal for all stages of the rapid prototyping process, from design verification to functional performance testing, as well as creating mould tools, jigs and fixtures.

The new Digital ABS Plus material, available on Connex3, Objet1000/1000 Plus and legacy Connex platforms features new levels of mechanical performance, with an excellent impact resistance & shock absorption of 90-110J/m (or 1.69 – 2.06 ft lb/in). That’s an improvement of up to 38% compared to the original Digital ABS material.

The material comes in 2 colours: green and ivory. And for 3D printing extra thin walls below 1.2mm (0.047 in.), the material is also available in the Digital ABS2 Plus version.

Some tips to help you get started with Digital ABS Plus:

  • If you are printing fine features and thin walls, below 1.2mm (0.047 in.), don’t forget to use soluble support to ensure your thin walls, delicate parts and internal geometries come out clean and perfect.
  • Make the most of the Connex3 printer accuracy combined with the strength of the Digital ABS Plus to create really precise yet functional mechanical connections, like screw threads, interlocking gears, snap fits and friction-fit fasteners.
  • The high toughness and temperature resistance of Digital ABS Plus makes it a strong choice for creating functional prototypes for Consumer Electronics, Commercial Goods, Automotive, Aerospace, Industrial Machinery and Equipment. Thermal treatment of Digital ABS Plus and Digital ABS2 Plus parts in a programmable oven improves the heat resistance further.
  • Combine the Digital ABS Plus material with the new Agilus30 material to simulate functional yet realistic prototypes that feature rubber-like over-moldings & soft-touch parts or to make on-part text and instructions really stand out.
