Engineering Thermoplastics

Below is a list of Engineering Thermoplastics

//The benefits of ABS with the stiffness of carbon fiber.

ABS-CF10 Alignment FixtureStratasys ABS-CF10 combines the benefits of a carbon fiber filament with the desirable mechanical properties and ease of use of ABS 3D printing material. The result is an engineering thermoplastic with superior strength and rigidity for factory floor tooling applications.

Significantly reduce your tooling lead time by 3D printing them with Stratasys ABS-CF10 instead of machining. Depending on the application, carbon-reinforced ABS can replace metal for lighter, more ergonomic tooling. Combined with soluble support, Stratasys ABS-CF10 can achieve complex geometries that aren’t possible with machining.

ABS-CF10 is compatible with QSR soluble support material.

Diran 410MF07

//Nylon-based material specifically formulated for the F370 to produce jigs, fixtures, and manufacturing aids.

Diran Robert EndDiran™ 410MF07 is a nylon-based thermoplastic FDM material, mineral-filled 7% by weight. It demonstrates very good toughness and impact strength combined with resistance to hydrocarbon-based chemicals. Its smooth, lubricious surface quality offers low sliding resistance.

Typical applications include jigs, fixtures and other forms of general manufacturing tooling, and is particularly effective for applications needing a non-marring interface between the tool and the workpiece.

Diran 410MF07 is compatible with SUP4000B breakaway support material.

FDM TPU 92A Flexible Elastomer

//Ideal for prototyping highly functional, large, durable, complex elastomer parts.

FDM® TPU 92A is a thermoplastic polyurethane with a Shore A value of 92. The material exhibits high elongation, superior toughness, durability and abrasion resistance and is the only elastomer material with REAL soluble support on the easiest to use rapid prototyping 3D printer.

FDM TPU 92A brings the benefits of elastomers to FDM 3D printing and offers the capability to quickly produce large and complex elastomer parts. It also eliminates expensive and time-consuming molding or casting methods to produce elastomer parts. Typical applications include flexible hoses, tubes, air ducts, seals, protective covers and vibration dampeners.

//3D print in high-impact engineering thermoplastic

Engineers and designers use PC-ABS in demanding applications like power-tool prototyping and industrial equipment manufacturing. 3D printing in real engineering thermoplastics results in stronger parts, more confident testing and prototypes that mimic the material properties of the final product.

PC-ABS works with soluble support material, meaning support removal is hands-free and complex parts with deep internal cavities take no extra effort, and is available in black.

//Build strong parts in engineering 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.

PC is available in white and works with breakaway and soluble support materials. For maximum unattended build time, PC is available in Xtend 500 Fortus Plus (500 cubic inches of material) boxes for compatible systems.

FDM Nylon 6

//Superior strength and toughness

FDM Nylon 6 offers the best combination of strength and toughness of any FDM material. It works with the Fortus 900mc to build durable prototypes that accurately predict functional performance, manufacturing tools that withstand the rigors of a production environment, or low-volume production parts that meet high functional requirements.

FDM Nylon 6 is available in black and uses soluble support material.


  • Build jigs, fixtures, guides, guards and other manufacturing aids that require good tensile and mechanical strength.
  • Test the functional performance of components like pedals, handles, bindings, gears, joints, bearings, fasteners and covers before investing in tooling.
  • Eliminate the time and cost of tooling for low-volume, high-requirement parts on aircraft or industrial machinery by manufacturing them on the Fortus 900mc.
