ABSi for Fortus 3D Production Systems

Fortus® 3D Production Systems give engineers the ability to manufacture real industrial thermoplastic parts direct from digital files. Stratasys ABSi is an ideal material for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping and direct digital manufacturing. Its strength is superior to standard Stratasys ABS, and the translucent nature of ABSi is beneficial for monitoring material flow and light transmission, most commonly used for medical and automotive applications. When combined with a Fortus 3D production system, ABSi gives you Real Parts™ that are visually unique, dimensionally accurate, durable and hold their shape over time.

The information presented are typical values intended for reference and comparison purposes only. They should not be used for design specifications or quality control purposes. End-use material performance can be impacted (+/-) by, but not limited to, part design, end-use conditions, test conditions, color etc. Actual values will vary with build conditions. Product specifications are subject to change without notice.

1 Build orientation is on side long edge.
2 Literature value unless otherwise noted.
3 Due to amorphous nature, material does not display a melting point.
4 All Electrical Property values were generated from the average of test plaques built with default part density (sparse). Test plaques were 4.0 x 4.0 x 0.1 inches (102 x 102 x 2.5 mm) and were built both in the flat and vertical orientation.
