Printing a tube with Elastic possible?


#1

I’m printing with Elastic resin.

I heard that Y-Shapes should be orientated that the 2 upper parts of the Y should not merge into the bottom part.

For a tube it’s kinda similar, I would imagine. It starts as open profile with 2 walls and eventually merges to 1 closed part.

Do you think with the right orientation it would be possible?

Hey @anhngu!

Great question! I can confirm we’ve absolutely printed cylinders(or pipes) out of Elastic resin! Like most other materials you’d print on a Formlabs machine, you’ll just want to make sure you’ve got a roughly 45-degree lean to one side for optimal results.
