MULTI-MATERIAL 3D PRINT
Any rigid region, any flexible region. Properties you want, only where you want them. Design for function, not material.
Encapsulate rigid materials in super-tough TPU for unbreakable parts.
60 Shore A, with infill, feels like a rubber band. Incredible tactile feel, straight off the machine. Great for padding.
Solid support material (not scaffold) makes a smooth bottom finish. Automatic, clean tool changes.
Process (more details in manual):
Generate CAD file with all regions
Option: use Diabase scanner to digitize footprint
Define rigid and flexible regions, generate flat-bottom support
Generate toolpaths (slice file)
Use different process (and tool) for different regions
Support cradle is a process, not auto-generated
Run G-code file through Diabase Wizard to speed up print
Preheats upcoming tools
Combines tools within each layer
Load compatible materials and print
Certain combinations work better than others. TPU+PVA is good
ABS works well inside TPU encapsulant
