Re: [rp-ml] Objet Material Information Request

Dear all,


We too work with the FullCure 700 resin from Objet and would be very much interested on some of the information required previously by Chris (the one that is not presented by Objet).


Regarding the cured properties of the material, I've already tested what is the percentage of cure that the material presents when coming out of the machine, and it presents itself in its fully cured state, which may indicate that the properties presented by Objet, may well be of the material in this state (don't see any reason for not being....).


If any of you investigates a little more, please let me know.

              Estimated Chris:

              You can find some information of the FullCure 700 in the following web site: I can imagine you've got already this information, and the truth is that I don't know if the properties shown there are for the fully cured state, but they can be useful for you.

              We are users of this machine, so if you find some new information about this photopolymer, we would appreciate to hear about that, because we are also interested in making some tests to these parts (from surface roughness to rigidity) and any knowledge would be mostly welcome.

              Hope this helps. Best regards.

  I'm in the process of running FEA analysis on prototype parts. However, obtaining reliable material properties for the prototype material has proved difficult. Therefore, does anyone know the material properties for "Full Cure 700 Series Photopolymer" in the fully cured state? This material is used in the Eden 330 Objet rapid prototype machine.

  Furthermore, is there documentation on part strength as a result of print direction? I other words, how does lamination direction effect part strength in bending, shear, tensile, etc?

  I'm most interested in the follow specifications.

  -Elastic Modulus

  -Poisson's Ratio

  -Shear Modulus

  -Mass Density

  -Tensile Strength

  -Yield Strength

  -Compressive Strength

  -Thermal Expansion Coeff.

  -Thermal Conductivity

  -Specific Heat

  Any assistance would be appreciated.
