ABS is a versatile, low-cost option. Finished ABS parts are quite strong and quick to make. We offer ABS parts in a variety of colors.
PLA is an excellent, biodegradable choice for customers who want to reduce shrinkage and prevent warping.
Onyx is a blend of chopped carbon fiber reinfoced with Nylon. Onyx provides a superior finish that is both heat and chemical resistant.
Extremely tough and overtly versatile, nylon is a great choice for those looking to reinforce continuous fibers.
Superior stiffness and an unmatched strength-to-weight ratio make carbon fiber the premium choice for those who demand toughness.
Low in density and highly durabile, Kevlar is used in a variety of applications while being both strong and affordable.
Fiberglass is often added to other materials to increase strength. It has a wide-variety of applications, making it one of the most versatile materials available.
HSHT means High Strength and High Temperature. Using this material yeilds an extremely impact resistant product that is unphased by heat.
We have two types of stainless steel, both with unique properties and characteristics. Click the image above now to learn more.
Tool steel is known for its versatility and often used to create a wide-variety of cold-work tools; things like forming and cutting equipment as well as high-wear parts.
Pure copper conducts heat and electricity far better than traditional metals. Markforged Copper possesses better conductivity characteristics than alloyed copper.
Inconel’s strength combined with its impressive heat resistance makes it ideal for heat and pressure shielding applications.
Castable Wax Resin accurately captures intricate features and offers the smooth surfaces stereolithography 3D printing is known for.
Clear Resin is great for fluidics and mold making, optics, lighting, and any parts requiring translucency.
High Temp Resin offers a heat deflection temperature (HDT) of 238 °C @ 0.45 MPa, the highest among Formlabs resins.
Our softest Engineering Resin, this 50A Shore durometer material is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone.
Flexible is excellent for simulating soft-touch materials and adding ergonomic features.
