Rigid and Structural Resins

For parts that need to resist bending.

Use the Formlabs family of Rigid Resins to make parts that will be dimensionally stable under load but will experience brittle failure if pushed to their limits.

Ideal for: Jigs, fixtures & tooling; Turbines & fan blades; Fluid & airflow components; Electrical casings & automotive housings.

Various 3D Printed Models using Formlabs Engineering Resins

Glass-filled Rigid 4000 Resin prints with a smooth, polished finish and is ideal for stiff and strong parts that can withstand minimal deflection.

Consider Rigid 4000 Resin for general load-bearing applications including: Turbines and fan blades; Jigs, fixtures and tools; Manifolds; Electrical casings and automotive housings.

The “4000” in the name represents the material’s tensile modulus. If you need a stiffer material, try Rigid 10K Resin.

  • Supports print resolutions: 100 and 50 microns

  • Post-curing required

  • Compatible with: Form 2 (Requires Resin Tank LT); Form 3; Form 3B

Rigid 10K Resin

3D prints which use Rigid 10K Resin

This highly glass-filled resin is the stiffest material in the engineering portfolio. Choose Rigid 10K Resin for precise industrial parts that need to withstand significant load without bending.

Rigid 10K Resin exhibits a smooth matte finish and is highly resistant to heat and chemicals.

The “10K” in the name represents the material’s tensile modulus. If you need a less stiff material, try Rigid 4000 Resin.

  • Supports print resolutions: 100 and 50 microns

  • Post-curing required

  • Compatible with: Form 2 (Requires Resin Tank LT); Form 3; Form 3B

Grey Pro Resin offers high precision, moderate elongation, and low creep.

Grey Pro is great for concept modelling and functional protoyping, especially for parts that will be handled repeatedly.

Applications for Grey Pro could include: Form and Fit testing; Injection molded product prototypes; Mold masters for plastics, silicones and more; Jigs and fixtures for manufacturing.

  • Supports print resolutions: 100 and 50 microns

  • Post-curing required

  • Compatible with: Form 2 (Requires Resin Tank LT); Form 3; Form 3B
