Flat, white wrench with notches 3D printed from polycarbonate

PC

Build strong parts in engineering thermoplastic

Rapid tooling, built to endure. By building parts in polycarbonate (PC), FDM Technology lets engineers and designers marry the speed and agility of 3D printing with the reliability of the most widely used industrial thermoplastic.

With reliable FDM Technology producing strong PC parts in-house, manufacturers in automotive, commercial equipment and other industries gain the agility to seize more opportunities.

3D Printing With PC Thermoplastic

PC and FDM Technology produce functional prototypes, tooling and end-use parts in a familiar, durable engineering material. PC’s high tensile and flexural strength make it ideal for demanding prototyping needs, tooling and fixtures, and patterns for metal bending and composite work. Low-volume manufacturing and customization become feasible, and testing provides more confidence.

This material works with Fortus 360mc/400mc, Fortus 380mc/450mc and Fortus 900mc 3D Production Systems.
