3D printing living hinges

It’s been a little while since our last update after our move to a new premises in the Tauriko Industrial Estate (Tauranga), so many things happening but let’s start with a polypropylene like material available now via our recently purchased multi-jet machine (Object 30pro)

The below video shows a “living hing” example print on our machine in a simulated polypropylene material called RGD450 (Properties linked here), it’s a very useful addition to our material line-up as polypropylene is not an easy material to print with or simulate generally speaking.  We could get a similar finish from our SLA prints but not with the required properties for a living hing (Like found on many consumer products, for example flip top bottle caps).

Please feel welcome to inquire about this service.
