We have expanded our offerings of advanced engineering materials for the MakerBot METHOD® 3D printing platform with the addition of three new LUVOCOM® 3F materials from LEHVOSS Group, a leading provider of high-performance thermoplastics for industrial sectors. This brings the number of METHOD materials up to 30, giving customers an even wider selection of manufacturing-grade materials with which to explore.
LUVOCOM 3F PAHT 9825 NT, LUVOCOM 3F PAHT CF 9891 BK, and LUVOCOM 3F PET CF 9780 BK are available to use with the MakerBot LABS GEN 2 Experimental Extruder for both the METHOD and METHOD X 3D printers. The LABS extruder transforms METHOD into an open platform that is able to print qualified advanced engineering materials from leading filament suppliers.
Designed for 3D printing and industrial applications, the LUVOCOM 3F materials have similar properties to their compounded versions used for injection molding. These materials are specially optimized to provide an easy-to-print experience and to achieve the next level of properties and quality. Parts printed with these materials result in strong, stiff prints with a high quality surface finish, and are ideal for prototyping, jigs and fixtures, and end-use applications.
