Models in Rubber-like are constructed from an off-white, very fine, granular powder. The result is a strong, high-flexible and durable material which is dyed black afterward. The material is abrasive resistant, shows a limited level of detail, and has a sandy, granular look. The technical name of the material is TPU 92A-1. TPU 92A -1 is a Thermoplastic Polyurethane derived from a Shore A 92. The "1" stands for the fact that it is the first member of a family of materials, hopefully with many to follow.

There is one downside to this material: for the moment it can’t be produced and distributed in the US due to distribution restrictions, not even by third parties.

Technology

Laser Sintering

Laser sintering is used to build your design with this material. The models are printed layer by layer by a laser that draws thin lines in the powder, which melts and bonds it together in order to form a thin layer of the model. After a layer is printed, a new layer of fresh powder is spread over the surface by a roller. The printer has a print chamber that is heated to just below the melting point of the powder; the laser beam adds the extra energy to melt the powder, forming a solid model. After a print job is finished, the result is a big block of heated powder with the printed models contained inside.
