Stratasys 3D Printing: Rapid Prototyping Users with Two New Advanced Materials

Stratasys Expands Horizons for Rapid Prototyping Users with Two New Advanced Materials     Today we’re launching two new, very different, yet highly complementary materials for 3D printing and rapid prototyping customers.   Agilus30 is a flexible PolyJet material family (available in black and translucent colors), providing enhanced tear resistance and superior rubber-like quality. It’s ideal for product design verification and even some functional performance tests. See it in action here.   At the other end of the prototyping spectrum, we have the new FDM Nylon 12CF material.   Functional prototype of an automotive brake pedal and jig assembly 3D printed in FDM Nylon 12CF material.   This is our
