Directly print soft, resilient material

Parts printed in Elastic Resin material by Formlabs are durable enough to use for multiple cycles and look and behave like a molded silicone part.

It's the latest addition to Formlabs' library of Engineering Resins for the Form 2 desktop stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer. Elastic Resin now makes it possible to directly print soft, resilient materials like this one on the desktop and cut down on lead time and costs in engineering, healthcare, and more.

With affordable, industrial-quality 3D printers like the Form 2 and new advancements like Resin Tank LT it’s possible to produce elastic parts on the desktop in a matter of hours and not only possible for expensive industrial equipment anymore.

Healthcare professionals depend on patient-specific medical models to better prepare for complex cases and operations. Models facilitate better communication both within surgical teams and between practitioners and patients. There was a demand from healthcare professionals for a clear flexible material to support cases in cardiac surgery, neurosurgery, surgical oncology, and other specialties.

For designers of wearables that create novel sensory experiences, and designers of robotic grippers for manufacturing lines, the ability to rapidly prototype silicone parts before manufacturing is key to successful development of final products with the potential to change an industry.

As 3D printers and their subsystems evolve, so does access to new materials.
