I am a shoe designer thats currenly going back and forth between the Form3l and the Fuse1 for outsole/midsole production. I need my end result to be something like 95-105A hardness TPU that can be worn/stressed all day, year long. My dillema is that I’m not sure which printing method (SLA or SLS) could achieve the durability I’m looking for.
On paper, the detail of the Form2, & 3 are exactly what I need. People are telling me to opt for SLS printing services, even though Adidas and Puma have released 3D Printed outsole shoes with resin-based printers.
^^ This leads me to believe I might be able to get away with using SLA printing for my production in this instance as opposed to the powder-based SLS stuff.
Interested in you guys’ thoughts.
