Stratasys offers new 3D printing material for ultra thin parts

Stratasys has taken the wraps off its second generation Digital ABS material, designed for use with its PolyJet 3D printers.

Available now in green or ivory, the Digital ABS2 composite material is said to allow users to produce thin-walled models with high dimensional stability, improving form fit and assembly for prototyping or production applications. In addition, the material's high temperature resistance and rigidity make it suitable for 3D printing cores and cavities for use in low-volume injection moulding applications using thermoplastics. Benefits include sharper edges and the ability to 3D print small parts such as pins and other thin features that are strong enough to handle the high stresses of the injection moulding process.
