What material is suitable for rapid prototyping?

  • December 28,2017.

There are several different processes for rapid prototyping: CNC machining, SLA, SLS laser rapid prototyping and silicone mold vacuum casting etc..

If you make CNC rapid prototyping, you can have a variety of material selection, such as ABS, PC, PA, PMMA, POM, PVC, aluminum alloy, steel, copper, zinc alloy, aluminum alloy, etc..

If you do silicone mold to copy small quantities of products, you can simulate a variety of materials, such as ABS, PP, PC, PMMA, nylon, high temperature resistant materials, silicone rubber materials etc..

If SLA and SLS rapid prototyping, they have dedicated materials. SLA prototyping material is a photosensitive resin, relatively brittle, no toughness. SLS prototyping material is mainly nylon powder or nylon powder plus glass fiber.
