The Dow Chemical Co., a subsidiary of DowDuPont, unveils its EVOLV3D platform for 3D printing.
The EVOLV3D family was developed to address customer challenges for prototyping and manufacturing using 3D printing, and represents Dow’s entry into the growing 3D printing industry. Among the first products to be introduced is EVOLV3D USM (Universal Support Material).
EVOLV3D USM provides the ability to use a single support for a range of popular build material filaments. This water-soluble support material maintains its structural integrity during the printing process, enabling production of parts with large overhangs, intricate inner geometries and deep cavities. EVOLV3D USM is anticipated to launch commercially in early 2018.
Dow also recently introduced a 3D printable liquid silicone rubber. Developed in collaboration with German RepRap GmBh, a leading manufacturer for fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printers, this materials technology is perhaps the first Dow solution to be formulated specifically for designers seeking to combine the performance benefits of silicone with the design and processing advantages of their additive manufacturing process.
