Hey, got a quick question, for anyone who might know; how do the weights of the white, strong and flexible material and grey robust material generally stack up?

I'm currently working on a few costume designs, and figured that getting some of the core structural components printed would save a lot of time and effort, but obviously want them to weigh the least possible, since someone would be wearing or carrying them all day.

Thanks in advance!

Hi CoyoteSeattle,

Believe me, you will not ask yourself this question for too long: your object will get too much expensive before it gets too much heavy Very Happy .

Anyways, the density of White Strong and Flexible is 0.93 (that is 1 cm3 weights 0.93 gram) and the density of Grey Robust is 1.25.

You can find this kind of information in the links that are in the Materials pages.

I had the same question. I think it would be interesting to add this information in the material pages of the website.
Thanks for the answer though. Smile
