Being both solid and flexible, this material offers high versatility. The surface has a sanded, grainy texture which can be polished. The 3D prints obtained with this material are somewhat porous and are available in 10 colors.
This plastic is made from grey powder and offers a continuous coloring that is resistant to abrasion. The surface has a sanded, grainy texture which can be polished. Being both solid and flexible, this material offers high versatility.
This plastic is made from black powder and offers a continuous coloring that is resistant to abrasion. The surface has a sanded, grainy texture which can be polished. Being both solid and flexible, this material offers high versatility.
Flexible Plastic is an off-white powder-based material. Strong, with outstanding flexibility, it makes a top choice for 3D prints resembling soft products or for innovative uses as a final product.
Similar to our plastic material, but with small aluminum particles, this material can only withstand minor impacts. The surface is somewhat porous with a light aluminum sheen.
Glass-filled nylon is a plastic material filled with glass beads. It is stronger and more durable but has a less accurate printing resolution. It is a good technical material.
CarbonMide is a mix of black polyamide powder and carbon fibers. It has a great resistance and offers the best weight / Strength ratio. The material can be used for many technical parts like aerodynamic components in the motor sport industry.
Opaque Polyjet Resin
Both solid and rigid, this material offers high levels of detail with a smooth surface. It is available in 12 different colors.
Translucent Polyjet Resin
Both solid and rigid, this material offers high levels of detail with a smooth surface. Ask a quote for colors.
Prototyping Acrylate (CLIP)
Our Prototyping Acrylate resin material creates 3D printed objects from a base of photosensitive polymer liquid. That liquid is solidified by UV light, layer by layer, to create rigid and highly detailed prints, close to injection molded plastics.
Rigid Polyurethane (CLIP)
Our RPU resin material creates 3D printed objects from a base of photosensitive polymer liquid. RPU is very stiff and strong with properties that outperform ABS plastic and rivals Nylon. This material is perfect for mechanical parts.
Elastomeric Polyurethane (CLIP)
EPU is a high-performance polyurethane elastomer. It exhibits excellent elastic behavior under cyclic tensile and compressive loads. EPU is useful for applications where high elasticity, impact and tear resistance are needed.
Cyanate Ester (CLIP)
Our Cyanate Ester-based resin is a high-performance material with glass transition temperatures up to 225°C [437°F]. CE is useful for under-the-hood applications, electronics, and industrial components.
Flexible Polyurethane (CLIP)
FPU is a semi-rigid material with good impact, abrasion and fatigue resistance. This versatile material was designed for applications that require the toughness to withstand repetitive stresses such as hinging mechanisms and friction fits.
This is the only material that is 3D printed in full color. It is fragile, however, and can only be used ornamentally. The surface has a sandy, grainy aspect.
Aluminum AISi10Mg (SLM)
Our Aluminum creates 3D printed objects from a fine metallic powder
principally composed of aluminum (90%) and silicium (9%). Aluminum
is used to offer light and strong parts for various industries
such as automotive, energy or high-tech products.
Titanium Ti64 (DMLS)
Our Titanium creates 3D printed objects from a fine metallic powder
composed of titanium (88-100%), aluminum (5.5-6.5%) and vanadium
(3.5-4.5%). Titanium creates light and strong parts for industries
like medical implants, automotive or aerospace.
Stainless Steel 316L (DMLS)
Our Stainless Steel creates 3D printed objects from a fine metallic
powder. Stainless Steel is used for various industries such
as automotive, energy or high-tech products. We 3D print Stainless
Steel 316L thanks to DMLS technology.
Sculpteo's brass material is composed of 82% copper and 18% zinc.
It is perfect for jewelry and decorative creations.
Available in 6 finishes: raw, mirror polished, gold plated, pink gold plated, white rhodium or black rhodium plated.
Sterling Silver (Wax-Casting)
Solid and relatively malleable, our 92.5% sterling silver is perfect
for jewelry creation.
The surface is available in 4 finishes: rough, mirror polished, white rhodium or black rhodium plated.
Stainless Steel 420SS/BR
Our stainless steel 420SS/BR is a great metal material for decorative
objects and jewelry. The polishing finishes and the plating
options give a professional looking aspect. The material is
infiltrated with bronze powder.
