Stratasys ABS thermoplastic materials have been used primarily to create durable parts and prototypes. Specialty ABS materials take prototypes to a whole new level by making them functional. The increased strength, transparency and ability to be bio-compatible set these specialty ABS materials apart and allow prints to be closer to the final product. They are changing the game for many industries.
ABS is the most widely used polymer for Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing. Take a walk down any aisle in a store and you are bound to see ABS in items that contain plastic. Consumer goods and automotive are the first industries that come to mind. Although, many industries have taken advantage of the unique combination of UV resistance, vivid colors and glossy finish that set this material apart.

Stratasys Vero PolyJet materials are photopolymers known and used for 3D printing parts that require smoothness and accuracy, and for their strength, stiffness and versatility. These materials are commonly used to 3D print prototypes that are as close as they can be to the final product. Although they belong to the same family, not all of the Vero materials and types can be combined with each other. In this article, we will quickly explore the complete Vero line of materials to better understand all the differences.

Thermoplastic Polyurethane 92A (TPU 92A) is a type of elastomer material - a polymer with elastic properties. The main differentiator between elastomers and rigid, or semi-rigid, polymers is resilience; TPU can stretch or compress significantly and not lose its shape. This material is renowned for high elongation, superior toughness and extreme durability.
