MULTI-MATERIAL 3D PRINT

Benefits:

Custom Regions

Any rigid region, any flexible region. Properties you want, only where you want them. Design for function, not material.

Durable

Encapsulate rigid materials in super-tough TPU for unbreakable parts. 

Tactile

60 Shore A, with infill, feels like a rubber band. Incredible tactile feel, straight off the machine. Great for padding.

Finish

Solid support material (not scaffold) makes a smooth bottom finish. Automatic, clean tool changes.

Process (more details in manual):​

1.

Generate CAD file with all regions

  • Option: use Diabase scanner to digitize footprint

  • Define rigid and flexible regions, generate flat-bottom support

2.

Generate toolpaths (slice file)

  • Use different process (and tool) for different regions

  • Support cradle is a process, not auto-generated

3.

Run G-code file through Diabase Wizard to speed up print

  • Preheats upcoming tools

  • Combines tools within each layer

4.

Load compatible materials and print

  • Certain combinations work better than others. TPU+PVA is good

  • ABS works well inside TPU encapsulant

Similar build, all TPU:
