Material of the Month: Versatile Plastic

Versatile Plastic is a durable nylon plastic that can be used for a wide range of applications, both for prototyping and for end products. Printed using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), when thin, it’s flexible enough for hinges and springs and when thick, it’s strong enough for structural components. ​

Ideal Applications Include:

  • Robotics
  • Drones
  • Medical & Prosthetics
  • Installation & Exhibits
  • Education
  • Consumer Products
