In this edition of 30 on 3D, we are diving into the latest FDM material from Stratasys, TPU 92A. 3D printing with TPU 92A puts an end to costly and time-consuming molding and casting methods in order to produce elastomeric parts. This is the first time Stratasys has had a high strength elastomer material available for their FDM printers. This new release builds upon the Stratasys knowledge of the FDM technology and is available on all of the F123 series machines.
TPU has a 500% elongation at break and a shore value of 92A. It also uses Stratasys’ QSR soluble support material to insure complex geometries. This opens up a whole array of applications that include intricate designs such as ducts, housings, tubing, and hoses.
