According to experts within the 3D Printing Industry, the materials market could be just as important for 3D printing as the actual printers themselves are. Stratasys, and other big players in the industry can clearly endur-1identify this, and they are taking every chance they can to further the development of additional materials for printing.

Today, Stratasys announced a brand new 3D printing material called Endur. Endur is an advanced simulated polypropylene material, which is great for a number of different applications. The material is compatible with Stratasys’ Objet Connex, Objet EdenV, Objet500 Connex3 and Objet 30Pro 3D Printers.

Endur can print extremely tough parts, which are resistant to high impact, and can stand up to high temperatures. It features great flexibility, superb surface quality, excellent dimensional stability, and comes in a single cartridge. Stratasys sees this new material as having the ability to satisfy a variety of different applications within the endur-2industry, especially as a way to prototype polypropylene products.

“Beta field trials showed high user satisfaction with Endur for models and prototypes of polypropylene parts,” said Stratasys product director for materials and applications, Fred Fischer. “During Beta testing, customers testing Endur acknowledged its toughness and flexibility, and they believed the material would address future needs. Due to Endur’s excellent simulated polypropylene properties, testing customers were able to address a variety of applications, including moving parts, snap-fit components and small cases and containers.”

As competition continues to heat up within the manufacturing based printer market, proprietary materials will continue to be a way to set companies apart from one another.
