Plastic Additive Manufacturing;

Nylon
The most commonly used material in plastic AM, producing parts with good long term stability, strength and durability required for functional testing. Offering resistance to most chemicals, it is harmless to the environment, safe to use with foodstuff and is non-hygroscopic, thereby avoiding the requirement to seal the surface on components being used with liquids.

Glass Filled Nylon
Providing greater rigidity and is perfect when prototyping rigid parts intended for production. The filler is glass bead and not fibre increasing the stiffness but not strength.

Metal Additive Manufacturing;

Aluminium AlSi10Mg
A typical casting alloy used for parts with thin walls and complex geometry. It offers good strength, hardness and dynamic properties and is therefore also used for parts that are subject to high loads. Parts are ideal for applications which require a combination of good thermal properties and low weight.

Cobalt Chrome Alloy
A fine powder mixture which produces parts in a cobalt-chrome-molybdenum based super-alloy. This class of super-alloy is characterized by having excellent mechanical properties (strength, hardness etc.), corrosion and temperature resistance. Such alloys are commonly used in biomedical applications such as dental and medical implants and also for high-temperature engineering applications such as in aero engines

This is a list of materials provided by our online system, if you require a combination of materials or a more complex build on the connex machine please contact us before uploading your file.

What our clients are saying

"I found Mark and the guys at Inspire 3D to be very helpful and professional. They took a real interest in my prototype and wanted it to be 100% perfect. I will certainly use Inspire again."

P. Fitzgerald

"I was really impressed at the cutting edge technology Inspire 3D have in-house. It was a real pleasure to work with an Irish business right on my doorstep to help guide me to produce my products."

D. O'Rourke

"Big thanks to Mark and team for producing my demo-prototype so quickly. It was even better than I had envisaged. I would have no issues recommending Inspire 3D to friends and colleagues."
