FLEX 3D Printing technology allows users to print directly with pelletized materials
Fused Layer Extrusion (FLEX) 3D Printing technology allows users to print directly with pelletized materials – this means vastly more material options than many current 3D printers, at a significantly reduced cost.
At its core, FLEX is inspired by proven technology from the plastics industry, but with new features and innovations that make it great for industrial and personal printing.
Here are a few of the materials that Sculptify is currently testing and optimizing:
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene
Hard plastic commonly used in plastic car components and household items.
Semi-hard and durable plastic, used in milk jugs and plastic bags.
Hard plastic, biodegradable, made from renewable resources. The standard in 3D printing.
Ethylene vinyl acetate
Soft silicone-like material often used in shoes and sportswear.
Hard and durable material that is often used in low-friction applications like bearings.
Rubber-like material that is often used in shoes and mobile device cases.
High impact polystyrene
Semi-hard and durable plastic used in disposable utensils and containers.
Polycarbonate – Very hard plastic that is typically transparent. Often used in safety glasses and DVDs.
Earthy look and finish, often used in synthetic decking.
