Video: Will It Wrench?

How much torque does it take?! Watch our latest challenge putting several of our 3D Printing materials to the test.

By Alex Stonehouse · March 20, 2017


In our latest video, Director of Applications Engineering, Greg Paulsen, puts multiple 3D Printing materials to the test to see which can withstand the most torque. What will happen when he uses a wrench to apply force to FDM ABS-M30, FDM Nylon 12, SLS Nylon 12, FDM Polycarbonate, and FDM Ultem 9085? Watch and find out!
