Hi Shapeways community! As part of our ongoing commitment to continually diversifying our range of materials, we are thrilled to announce the addition of a new finish for Multi Jet Fusion Plastic: Black Smooth PA12. Thanks to cutting-edge physio-chemical technology, you can now create smooth, semi-shiny, and watertight Multi Jet Fusion Plastics parts, sealing the material’s porous surface. Unlike polishing, this new process can smooth all surfaces including internal cavities and does not wear down key features, altering the dimensional accuracy by no more than 0.4%. The smoothing process enhances the surface quality of each part without altering the mechanical properties, making Black Smooth PA12 a perfect option for working prototypes, display models, external functional parts, and high-end DIY projects. We’re so excited to see how this new material will expand the realm of what’s possible with Shapeways and bring a new level of professionalism and accuracy to your products. To order this new finish, upload a 3D model, select Multi Jet Fusion Plastic, Black, then Smooth PA12, and add your configured model to your cart.
