Result - Partnership - Shapeways - Carbon - Resins
As a result of this partnership, Shapeways has now made available three of Carbon’s 3D printable resins. The first, Elastomeric polyurethane (EPU 40), is a highly tear resistant and resilient material, which works well in 3D printing foam-like products. Rigid polyurethane (RPU 70), is the second material. It properties resemble ABS as it is both rigid and flame-resistant.
Finally, Urethane methacrylate (UMA 90), a...
