Stratasys and Rapid Prototype+Manufacturing (rp+m), an Ohio-based 3D printing service bureau, has produced a comprehensive guide on the engineering-grade ULTEM 9085 resin used in FDM/FFF 3D printing. The ULTEM 9085 Type I Database details the physical and mechanical properties and processing parameters of the material.

The guidebook is now available to the Youngstown-based AM accelerator America Makes and its partners, who can access it through the online service platform America Makes Digital Storefront.

Classification - ULTEM - Use - Printing - Components

It is hoped that the classification of ULTEM 9085 will promote its use in 3D printing interior components for aircraft.

America Makes’ Executive Director, Rob Gorham, said, “The qualification of the ULTEM 9085 material and the establishment of the material properties database by the rp+m-led team are huge steps forward for AM, particularly within the aerospace and defense industries.”

America Makes was founded by the U.S. Department of Defense to promote the rapid adoption of additive manufacturing and make the technology an industry standard in the U.S. As such it has published the Standardization Roadmap for Additive Manufacturing with American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

Established by the Thogus Products, a plastic injection molding company in Ohio, rp+m is one of the founding members of America Makes. rp+m led the project for classifying ULTEM 9085 with Stratasys, whose Fortus machines are known for printing the engineering polymer.

In praising efforts of rp+m, Rob Gorham, said, “On behalf of all of us at America Makes, I want to commend rp+m and its team for enabling the broad dissemination of the collective knowledge of ULTEM 9085 for the innovation of future part design.”
