Choose our family of Rigid Resins when prototyping strong and stiff parts that need to resist bending. Parts made from these materials are thermally and chemically resistant and will be dimensionally stable under load, but will experience brittle failure if pushed to their limits.
- Jigs, fixtures, and tooling
- Turbines and fan blades
- Fluid and airflow components
- Electrical casings and automotive housings
Which Material Is Right for You?
Trying to choose a material within our Rigid family? A good place to start is the tensile modulus which is a measure of stiffness. A higher tensile modulus indicates a stiffer material.
The family of Rigid Resins have many shared applications. Identifying the best material for a specific use case involves understanding your design constraints and the key tradeoffs between the materials.
Rigid 10K Resin
Rigid, Strong, Industrial-Grade Prototypes
This highly glass-filled resin is the stiffest material in our 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.
- Short-run injection mold masters and inserts
- Aerodynamic test models
- Heat resistant and fluid exposed components, jigs, and fixtures
- Simulates stiffness of glass and fiber-filled thermoplastics
Rigid 4000 Resin
Stiff, Strong, Engineering-Grade Prototypes
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.
- Mounts and brackets
- Jigs and fixtures
- Thin-walled parts
- Simulates stiffness of PEEK
