3D technology is one of the most resourceful manufacturing methods used when turning ideas into reality. Ford, CCM, Volvo and BMW are some of the world's top companies utilizing 3D printing, creating prototypes for parts, tooling and even inner structures of helmets. All started out as an idea and formed into a 3D object.

Part Two:
On the premise, here at Cyb Llings Inc., we have two types of technologies: the FDM and the PolyJet. As we touched on the FDM already before, we move to the PolyJet, which has some of its own unique features. The PolyJet Connex 500 is a powerful 3D printing technology that produces smooth, accurate parts, tooling and prototypes. With microscopic layer resolution and accuracy down to 30 to 60 microns, it can produce complex geometries using the widest range of materials available. It offers astonishing levels of detail and final product realism. Multiple PolyJet materials can even be melded into one application.

Looking for a prototype with real life features; weight, feel and look?

You’re in the right spot. The materials used are plastic and rubber-like; VeroClear, VeroBlackPlus, VeroWhitePlus, TangoBlackPlus, TangoPlus, Tango, Rigur and ABS-like materials. The PolyJet material starts in liquid form and is ejected from the print head, which slides back and forth to deposit a single ultra-thin layer of material onto the build tray.

VeroClear is a translucent material. This material is often used for smooth and precise prototypes but can also be suitable for end-use products. VeroClear has strength, stiffness, impact resistance, and can also be mixed with other materials. Due to its many excellent properties, the material is also water-resistant but not waterproof, so it cannot rest in the water for a long time. Moreover, when it comes to heat resistance, the material will deform significantly under heat above 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

VeroBlackPlus and VeroWhitePlus are hard opaque materials that can simulate the appearance of production parts, and have both stability and excellent fine feature details. These materials are used for moving and assembling parts, manufacturing tooling, silicone molding, highly accurate presentation models and fit and function testing. These materials are similar to VeroClear and can also be mixed with other materials.

Next, rubber-like material; Tango, TangoBlackPlus and TangoPlus have similar properties, but the hardness ranges from 27 to 95 Shore value, elongation and tear resistance are different. TangoBlackPlus, TangoPlus and Tango materials are ideal for testing and verifying visual and functional applications. They can simulate real applications such as grips, footwear and/or steering wheels. These materials produce soft, non-slip and flexible prototypes. These materials are unique in that they can also be mixed with other materials and can be used as rubber overmolding in a single structure.


Rigur is an advanced simulated polypropylene material that offers durability and a beautiful surface finish. Use it to build robust prototypes for snap-fit components, living hinges and other demanding applications. Rigur is an office-friendly material designed to provide reliable performance and dimensionally stable prototypes. It comes in a bright, true white with PolyJet technology’s fine resolution and smooth curves. For added versatility, other materials can be combined with Rigur to produce a range of grayscale shades and Shore A values.

Finally, ABS-like materials are true production-grade thermoplastics. A unique feature is that this material has a high heat deflection temperature yet is flexible and durable enough to perform virtually the same as production parts. Also, ABS-like material can be used for injection molds. This material improves thermal and mechanical performance of prototypes and parts for functional performance testing. This material can create snap-fit parts for high or low temperatures, electrical parts, casings, mobile phone casings, engine parts or covers, molds, and/or functional prototypes.

PolyJet technology may be the answer to your ideas.
