Polycarbonate production grade thermoplastic; High tensile & flexural strength & heat resistance; functional testing prototypes; Stratasys Fortus FDM 3D printing

Description

  • Polycarbonate (PC) is one of the most widely used industrial thermoplastics
  • Superior mechanical properties to ABS and a number of other thermoplastics, including greater tensile and flexural strength and higher heat resistance
  • Complex designs are possible as the support material is dissolvable

Typical Use

Ideal for functional testing prototypes with high heat applications, vacuum metallization, electroplating, and as a master for RTV molding and vacuum forming


Technology

Stratasys' Fortus 3D Production System, Fused Deposition Modeling technology. The principle is simple and comparable to a hot glue gun. In a FDM printer, a long plastic wire is used in place of glue. It is fed by a spool to the nozzle where the material is liquefied and ‘drawn’ on the platform where it immediately hardens again. The nozzle moves to drop the material at the correct location, drawing your model line by line. When a layer is drawn, the platform lowers by one layer thickness so the printer can start with the next layer. When your model contains overhanging sections, the printer needs to build supporting material. Since the material of the model cannot be deposited in the air, the support material prevents it from falling down.
