Clear 3D Printed Parts

For prototyping purposes clear 3D printed parts are sometimes required. These can range from a lens for an automotive headlight to a clear manifold block for fluid flow studies. No mater what the reason is, we can help you with your 3D printed clear parts. At Forerunner 3DP we have 2 different 3D printing technologies that can produce clear prototype parts:

SLA 3D Printing Accura ClearVue:

Utilized in a variety of demanding applications, 3D Systems Accura ClearVue for SLA is the most clear and colorless 3D printing material on the market. Formulated for ease-of-processing, exceptional detail and smooth surface finish, strength, durability and moisture resistance, it simulates the properties and appearance of Polycarbonate and ABS. This unique combination of clarity, material properties and processing speed makes Accura ClearVue a high performing and cost-effective choice for aesthetic and functional prototypes used to improve product development efficiency of consumer goods, automotive, aerospace and medical components.

PolyJet 3D Printing VeroClear:

VeroClear is a transparent material that simulates PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate), commonly known as acrylic. Like PMMA, VeroClear is used as an alternative to glass and is ideal for concept modeling and design verification of clear parts such as eyewear, light covers, and medical devices. It offers strength, stiffness, elongation and impact resistance, and the ability to blend with other materials for a range of opacities, hues, and hardness. VeroClear enables visualization of internal components and features, and simulation of glass ideal for form and fit testing of see-through parts.
