3D printing service provider Shapeways has announced its partnership with digital manufacturing company Carbon, expanding its 3D printing services portfolio.
Through our partnership with Carbon, select Shapeways customers will now have access to their breakthrough Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS™) technology, which opens up entire new worlds of manufacturing possibilities.
Along with DLS™ technology, Shapeways’ relationship with Carbon introduces three new materials to its portfolio:
- Elastomeric polyurethane (EPU 40), a highly elastic, tear-resistant, and resilient material, great for printing foam-like products
- Rigid polyurethane (RPU 70), a versatile and rigid material, great for automotive products, and industrial parts
- Urethane methacrylate (UMA 90), a tough, rigid resin similar to conventional SLA and used to manufacture jigs and fixtures
These powerful, multipurpose materials greatly expand Shapeways’ ability to meet even the most detailed and unique design challenges.
These materials are available to all Shapeways customers upon request.
