Formlabs introduces Elastic Resin: a soft, resilient 3D printing material

Formlabs announces Elastic Resin, the latest addition to its library of Engineering Resins for the Form 2 desktop stereolithography 3D printer. Producing quality elastic materials was once only possible for expensive industrial equipment. That’s changed with 3D printers, such as the Form 2 and advances like Resin Tank LT, which make it possible to produce elastic parts on a desktop in hours. This resin is the most pliable of Formlabs Engineering Resins, with a Shore durometer of 50A as well as high elongation and energy return. Key benefits of parts made from this material are that they look and behave like a molded silicone part, yet are durable enough to use for multiple cycles. Soft stereolithography resins can be a challenge as these properties of high elasticity but resistance to tearing during printing are typically diametrically opposed. These elastic resins suit applications in wearables, medical models, robotics, and special […]
