Tough, durable automotive part 3D printed in PC-ABS.

PC-ABS offers the best impact resistance of any FDM thermoplastic.

Superior Impact Strength and Heat Resistance

PC-ABS is a high-impact engineering thermoplastic ideal for functional prototyping, tooling and low-volume manufacturing. Get the best of two FDM materials, the strength and heat resistance of PC and the flexibility of ABS. PC-ABS also delivers excellent feature definition and surface finish.

3D Print Tough, Heat-Resistant Parts

Engineers and designers use PC-ABS in demanding applications like power-tool prototyping and industrial equipment manufacturing. Tough, durable and heat-resistant, PC-ABS results in stronger parts and prototypes that mimic the material properties of the final product. PC-ABS works with soluble support, so complex parts with deep internal cavities take no extra effort.

The NASA Mars rover includes several FDM parts printed in PC-ABS.

3D Printed Mars Rover Parts

NASA engineers drew on ingenuity and advanced FDM technology

NASA depends on ABS, PC-ABS and other polycarbonate materials for 3D-printed parts on the Mars rover. FDM production-grade thermoplastics like PC-ABS produce parts that are lightweight but durable enough for rugged environments.
