Shapeways Flexible Material

Yesterday, 3D Printing service Shapeways announced the availability of a new material in their already-impressive lineup, a flexible plastic polymer. Printing with this “Elasto Plastic” will cost $1.75/cm3, and like many of the other materials, is laser-sintered one layer at a time.

Head over to their blog for the full announcement post and the material page for more design tips. Check out the video below for more insight into this polymer’s properties and a closer look at a few of Shapeways’ impressive test prints:

i.Materialise also announced a new flexible plastic this week, although it cannot be sold to (or imported by) customers in the United States at this time.
