ABSi


ABSi

ABSi is an ideal material for conceptual modeling, functional prototyping and direct digital manufacturing. Its strength is superior to standard ABS, and the translucent nature of ABSi is beneficial for monitoring material flow and light transmission, most commonly used for medical and automotive applications. ABSi made parts are visually unique, dimensionally accurate, durable and hold their shape over time.
