MATERIALS: Quickparts announced the availability of Bluestone, a high-performance stereolithography material for rapid prototyping.
Bluestone is an accurate, strong, high temperature material that can be used across many industries for nearly any digital manufacturing project, including functional prototypes, jigs & fixtures, and low volume production runs that utilize the Stereolithography (SLA) process.
Accura Bluestone material is widely used for wind-tunnel testing for the aerospace and motorsports industries and has proven to be successful for electric / electrical components, microwave applications, pump and valve parts, and marine and automotive manufacturers.
In addition to its outstanding mechanical properties, the material also has a high strength to weight ratio, high temperature deflection, and is durable enough to handle some flexing.
