High strength taulman 645, 1.75mm Co-Polymer released, from 3ders.org.

Taulman3D announces today the release of “Clear” taulman 645 3D printing material, 1.75mm nylon based co-polymer. taulman 645 features very high strength, durability and excellent bridging performance. “taulman 645 is our best attempt at competing with the metals for strength, while using a 3D Printing thermoplastic.” says Taulman3D.

Designed to meet High Strength when printed at a 1:1 nozzle dia to layer height. High strength for both individual thread structure and thread to thread bonding. ~10lb weight suspended by a single loop of 0.2mm dia of taulman 645 3D Printing Line, Designed to meet High Optical Clarity when printed for LED and LCD Overlays.

For evaluating the strength and flexibility of taulman 645, Ben Malouf, artist and Creative Director at Acuity Design, 3D printed some beautiful and functional items using the material….

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
