3D Prototyping

Quick Overview

We print 3D parts with two of the newest 3D printing materials, namely polylactide (PLA) and thermoplastic elastomers (TPE).

PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch and sugar canes. This makes it environmentally friendly and safe to work with. In terms of 3D printing, PLA presents a wide range of available colours with translucencies and a glossy feel. TPE, on the other hand, belongs to the family of rubber-like materials that combine the characteristics of rubber with the recyclability and processing advantages of plastics. Unlike the chemical cross-linking which occurs in thermoset rubbers, TPE involves purely physical cross-linking, which makes it possible to be reused. TPE exhibits elasticity similar to that of rubber, offering a high-design flexibility, high-performance and processing easiness making it the material of choice of designers.
