Triton 3D, a supplier of OEM-compatible 3D printing materials, has just launched an online platform through which customers can purchase lower-cost alternatives to various Stratasys 3D printing materials, such as Ultem™ PEI, Polycarbonate, and ESD-Safe ABS. Triton 3D is also aiming to expand the range of Stratasys-compatible materials by offering value-added grades that can be used with existing Stratasys chip settings.

Ultem 9085 Natural filament

Founded by Matt Howlett (founder of desktop filament supplier 3DXTECH), Triton 3D is seeking to make high-performance 3D printing materials more accessible to the 3D printing community by offering lower-cost options. As part of this effort, the company has launched a series of materials compatible with Stratasys’ Fortus and Dimension 3D printers. The 3D printing filaments, which include Ultem 9085 and Ultem 1010, are also each equipped with a corresponding EEPROM chip, which enables them to be read by the Stratasys 3D printing systems.

In terms of cost saving, Triton 3D clients will have the opportunity to save as much as 30% or more compared to Stratasys’ current market prices. The more reasonable costs will ultimately allow for the 3D printing materials to be used in a broader array of applications, thereby growing the overall market for the materials.

Ultem

In addition to offering lower-cost material options for Stratasys 3D printer users, Triton 3D also provides value-add materials and expanded options which go beyond what Stratasys offers its customer base. For instance, Triton 3D’s ESD-Polycarbonate, a high-temperature resistant material (147°C Tg) with excellent mechanical properties and an ESD-safe surface resistance of 107 Ohm/sq was specially formulated to work on standard PC settings, a feature which Stratasys has not yet offered for their PC customers.

Similarly, Triton 3D has used its team’s expertise in specialty formulations and custom compounding to develop a number of specialty formulations of ABS filament. These formulations, which include ESD-ABS and Carbon Fiber ABS, have been adapted to work on standard M30, P430, and P400 settings.  Clients will see these ABS formulations released soon.

As of today, Triton 3D’s material offering for Stratasys’ Fortus® 360/400/900mc systems includes:

  • Ultem 9085 model and support,
  • Ultem 1010 model,
  • Polycarbonate (black/white)
  • PC/ABS (black/white).
  • ESD-Safe ABS

Upcoming 3D printing materials will include:

  • ESD-PC (available June 1)
  • CF-ABS (available July 1),
  • ASA (available July 1),
  • Transparent ABS (available July 1) and
  • ABS (available August 1).

All of Triton 3D’s printing materials are made in the USA and are shipped internationally. Materials, reels, and chips are 100% guaranteed to be compatible with their corresponding Stratasys systems.  For more information, please visit the Triton 3D website HERE.
