o Suitable for assemblies and functional testing.

o Prototypes withstand modest temperatures without distortion.

o Faster recoating and build times.

o Maximise reliability with no user R&D


7870 RenShape SL

o Improved retention of strength and dimensions of parts in humid conditions.

o Supplies clear components with outstanding clarity and excellent accuracy.

o Less part-finishing time with ease of post-curing.

o Higher quality casting materials for the investment casting parts.


7811 RenShape SL

o White, low viscosity stable liquid that produces strong white models and prototypes with good surface finish and detail, an ABS-like appearance.

o Well suited for building RTV patterns.

o Hardness and flexural modulus.

o Cured Density, coefficient of thermal expansion


Somos NanoTool

o Produces strong, stiff, high temperature resistant composite parts on conventional stereolithography machines.

o Heavily filled with non-crystalline nanoparticles allowing for faster processing.

o It exhibits superior sidewall quality, along with excellent detail resolution as compared to other composite stereolithography materials.


Accura ClearVue

o Durable, strong, semi-transparent, water-resistant resin for stereolithography.

o Low viscosity liquid photopolymer that produces strong, tough, water-resistant parts.

o Ideal for many applications in the automotive, medical and consumer electronics markets.
