The pricing for Rubber-like is based on model volume, which is the volume of your model used to calculate the material cost (mm³).
If you order two or more copies of a model, the price automatically decreases because the preparation of multiple copies can be carried out more efficiently.
Rubber-like can be used for haute couture, models that need shock absorption, gadgets, squeezable models, and functional models.
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.
Learning about our materials is one thing, seeing and touching them another. That's why we've designed sample kits based on our Periodic Table of Materials.
Includes a natural white and a dyed black sample. Currently not available in the United States.
