Adaptive3D and Aerosport Additive, a service bureau based in Ohio, USA, announced their partnership to expedite the adoption of additively manufactured solutions for elastomers. Aerosport will serve as an application development and manufacturing partner for functional parts and products produced from Adaptive3D’s photoelastomeric 3D printing materials. The announcement follows Aerosport’s purchase of a Carima DM400 top-down DLP 3D printer along with multiple vats of Adaptive3D’s flagship elastomer products Elastic ToughRubber 90 and Elastic ToughRubber 70.
