Stratasys, a provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, has added new colors for its ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) thermoplastic and Digital Materials.
ASA is an all-purpose FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) material for prototype production. The new color options are read, orange, dark gray, yellow, green, dark blue, white and light gray. The material, according to Stratasys, is flexible and UV resistant. It is compatible with the Fortus line of production systems.
The company has also expanded its PolyJet materials options with 20 new two-component Digital Materials. These offerings combine the Endur Digital Material with base materials. Endur enables users to create parts with a range of gray-scale color and rigid material; Shore A values and flexible materials can also be combined.
“By introducing Endur Digital Materials, we are giving customers more flexibility and versatility to 3D print durable prototypes,” said Boaz Jacobi, director of product management for PolyJet consumables. “It’s a superior PolyJet solution for living-hinge and snap-fit applications.”
