machine-grade PLASTIC

PCABS

A combination of ABS and Polycarbonate. It is a durable and impact resistant material that is great for producing casings. It is resistant to temperature, UV light exposure, and a broad range of chemicals. These properties make it a great choice for the automotive industry, and parts that need to be highly temperature resistant.

USES
Consumer electronics casings
Automotive parts

DESIGN GUIDELINES


MAX BUILD VOLUME

Artboard 1@2x-100.jpg

197 mm x 245 mm x 195 mm

Our specified build volumes are the largest that we are able to print for each material.

minimum hole diameteR

1.5 mm

A hole smaller in diameter than the specified minimum may appear closed after printing.

minimum wall thicknesS

2 mm

A model's wall thickness must be thick enough to support the model. If it is not, warping may occur. A wall that is too thin may cause a model to break.

minimum clearancE

0.6 mm

Interlocking parts are able to be printed all at once in a single print. In order for this to work, a minimum clearance must be met for the parts to come loose and work as intended.

Minimum embossed/engraved detaiL

Artboard 5@2x-100.jpg

3 mm

For engraved or embossed details, a specified minimum size must be kept in order to maintain readability.

vertical wire diameteR

2 mm

With a tall vertical wire, warping may occur during the printing process, therefore creating an erroneous print.

horizontal bridge max lengtH

49 mm

This is the length at which an unsupported span of material can be created without utilizing supports.

Minimum angle unsupported overhanG

65 degrees

This is the angle at which the overhang sticks out. Any angle less than the specificed minimum angle must utilize supports.
