Smart International, the authorized global brand licensee of 3D printing for Kodak, today announced that KODAK 3D Printing will be expanding its range of materials to include Acrylic and Nylon 6/66/12, as well as launching a new accessory line to enable users of the KODAK Portrait 3D printer to expand on the materials they can print with. These new additions promise to deliver on ever higher levels of quality, durability, and more technically difficult printing jobs. Acrylic, a new filament designed by KODAK 3D Printing, combines polycarbonate properties which deliver on high rigidity and are light conductive, whilst also being easy to print. It is well-suited to optical applications as the material conducts light, allowing for the 3D printing of interesting prototypes or for pieces requiring high transparency. In addition,, the new Acrylic is low-friction and can withstand high temperatures. Due to its low friction coefficient, it works well with moveable parts. Nylon 6/66/12 has also been introduced, as strong as traditional Nylon, but with greater flexibility. Unlike traditional Nylons, it is low warping and allows for better printing of fine details and overhangs. Used in c...
