Materials for Every Digital-Manufacturing Application
3Diligent offers a tremendous breadth of materials for 3D printing, CNC machining, casting, and injection molding. We categorize our library as follows: ceramics, composites, metals, natural materials, and polymers.
Ceramics have unique thermal properties and high degrees of stiffness. They are typically, however, extremely brittle. Ceramic material options include crystalline, non-crystalline, glass, and crystalline glass structures.
Metals are generally recognized as the strongest and most durable of materials. Most common metal alloys can be processed by one metal 3D Printing process or another. 3Diligent material options for metal materials fall into categories of ferrous, non-ferrous, and enhanced metals.
We classify our polymer material library into thermoplastics, thermoset resins, and enhanced plastics. Though polymers are defined by a common shared molecular chain, certain advanced plastics are also broadly considered polymers—introducing characteristics from other material families.
