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:
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.
Clear Resin is a rigid material that polishes to near optical transparency, making it ideal for working with light or showcasing internal features.
As one of the industry’s most popular materials, Somos WaterShed XC 11122 is the clear solution for numerous applications. Whether you’re a Designer looking for highly detailed parts with superior clarity and water resistance, or an Engineer focusing on durability for functional testing. Somos WaterShed XC 11122 mimics the look and feel of clear thermoplastics, such as ABS and PBT. Somos WaterShed XC 11122 also produces 3D printed clear parts that are optically clear parts with a smooth finish and it’s ease of use helps to shorten product development and testing. This versatility means Somos WaterShed XC 11122 is the ideal material in markets such as automotive, aerospace, and consumer electronics for applications including packaging, RTV patterns, durable concept models, wind tunnel testing and investment casting patterns.
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.
