3D Systems Expands SLA and Figure 4® Portfolios with Groundbreaking Materials

  • 3D Systems introduces Accura® AMX Tough FR V0 Black and Figure 4 JCAST-GRN 20, revolutionary materials for additive manufacturing of end-use parts in various industries.

  • Accura AMX Tough FR V0 Black is the first flame-retardant material for SLA, while Figure 4 JCAST-GRN 20 enables improved jewelry production.

  • The new materials offer high performance, efficient production, and a wide range of industrial applications.


New Materials Revolutionize Additive Manufacturing for End-Use Applications in Various Industries.

Today, the US-based company 3D Systems introduced new materials to expand its Stereolithography (SLA) and Figure 4® portfolio - Accura® AMX Tough FR V0 Black, Figure 4 Tough FR V0 Black, and Figure 4 JCAST-GRN 20. These groundbreaking high-performance materials enable efficient production of end-use applications in industries such as automotive, aerospace, semiconductor, and consumer goods.

Parts produced with Accura AMX Tough FR V0 Black are flame-retardant and meet UL 94 V0 test standards. This high-performance, fast-printing material allows for the production of ready-to-use parts in large quantities or at a large scale.

Accura AMX Tough FR V0 Black is the result of a new chemistry developed by 3D Systems' material scientists based on the Figure 4 materials, making it the industry's first flame-retardant material for SLA.

The material is also available as Figure 4 Tough FR V0 Black for use with 3D Systems' Figure 4 platform, allowing customers to scale part sizes and leverage the advantages of both platforms.

Accura AMX Tough FR V0 Black delivers enhanced part quality and resolution for SLA that was previously only achievable with Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technologies. This new flame-retardant material achieves a UL 94 V0 rating and is characterized by its combination of flexural modulus and nearly 35% elongation at break.

These properties, along with long-term stability, make the new Tough FR V0 Black material ideal for applications such as printed circuit board covers, semiconductor equipment, electrical housings, hooks, brackets, and flame-retardant parts for trains and buses.

Figure 4 JCAST-GRN 20 expands jewelry production capability on the Figure 4 platform, enabling fast and easy printing of accurate, highly detailed master patterns for jewelry in various styles.

3D Systems' Figure 4 Jewelry is an affordable solution optimized for jewelry design and manufacturing. Today, the company announces Figure 4 JCAST-GRN 20, its latest jewelry casting material, designed for clean and easy burnout of finely detailed, high-resolution, accurate, and repeatable jewelry patterns for direct casting.

This new offering is the perfect complement to 3D Systems' industry-leading MultiJet Printing (MJP) offerings for jewelry casting. The material's enhanced properties make it ideal for producing master patterns for gypsum investment casting of all types of jewelry and suitable for a range of precious metals.

The fully integrated workflow includes jewelry-specific build styles in 3D Sprint, providing design flexibility. The integrated workflow can also eliminate the need for post-curing and enable a fast turnaround of casting patterns.
