Flexible and Elastic

Replace outsourcing and molding of silicone, urethane, and rubber parts. With Formlabs 3D printers, it’s possible to produce flexible parts in-house in a matter of hours using our family of Flexible and Elastic Resins.  
Ideal for:     
  • Consumer goods prototyping
  • Compliant features for robotics
  • Medical devices and anatomical models
  • Special effects props and models

Flexible 80A

Hard Flexible Prototypes

Flexible 80A Resin is the most stiff soft-touch material in our library of Flexible and Elastic Resins, with an 80A Shore durometer to simulate the flexibility of rubber or TPU. Balancing softness with strength, Flexible 80A Resin can withstand bending, flexing, and compression, even through repeated cycles.

  • Handles, grips, and overmolds 
  • Cushioning, damping, and shock absorption 
  • Seals, gaskets, and masks 
  • Cartilage, tendon, and ligament anatomy

Elastic 50A

Soft Flexible Prototypes

Our softest Engineering Resin, this 50A Shore durometer material is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone. Choose Elastic 50A Resin for parts that will bend, stretch, compress, and hold up to repeated cycles without tearing, and spring back quickly to their original shape.

  • Wearables, such as straps
  • Stretchable enclosures and casings
  • Compressible buttons
  • Soft tissue anatomy
