Formlabs Engineering Rigid Resin
Rigid Resin is filled with glass to offer very high stiffness and a polished finish. This material is highly resistant to deformation over time and is great for printing thin walls and features.
Rigid Resin has the highest modulus of all Formlabs materials. It has great impact strength, heat resistance, and stability, but is more brittle than Tough and Durable.
Good for: turbines and fan blades; jigs, fixtures, and tooling; manifolds; electrical casings and automotive housings.
- Thin walls and features
- Turbines and fan blades
- Jigs, fixtures, and tools
- Electrical casings and automotive housings
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR:
- Parts that must bend
- Low-friction surfaces
- Drop or impact testing
Rigid Resin is comparable to other glass-filled thermoplastics. When compared to parts printed with other Formlabs materials, parts printed with Rigid Resin resist mechanical stress over a longer period of time. Stiffness is a measure of a material’s resistance to elastic deformation under stress. Due to the high degree of stiffness, Rigid Resin parts are more brittle than parts printed with Tough 2000 Resin or Durable Resin.
