What material do you use for 3D printing?

The HP Jet Fusion 5210 uses HP PA 12, a unique material developed by Hewlett Packard. The material retains its properties and shape in a wide range of temperatures: from −50 °C to 150 °C. The PA 12 polyamide is more resistant to high temperatures than ABS: the former melts at 187 °C and the latter at 105 °C.

Since PA 12 also excellently withstands physical stress and vibrations, it is often used in the automotive and aerospace industries. The item’s durability depends on its design and the thickness of its structure. Follow our recommendations on the pre-printing preparation of the model to get optimal results.

For more details about the PA 12 polyamide, see the Hewlett Packard document.
