Forming plastic using printed form


#1

Good day. There is a need to formed ABS plastic 2 mm. Is the printed form suitable for this? The forming temperature of the ABS plastic is approximately 160 degrees. Will she stand it?

Hey, I’ve done this a few times. High Temp Resin is great for this and has an HDT of 238C @ 0.45MPa which comfortably exceeds the temps needed for forming ABS. Let us know if you give it a try and have any questions about the process.
