Video: Will It Break?

We put these 3D Printing materials to the test. Find out the results of our impact resistance challenge!

By Scott Kaplan · September 21, 2016

In our latest video, Director of Project Engineering, Greg Paulsen, puts three 3D Printing processes to the test to see which holds up to our Impact Resistance Test: Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), or PolyJet (PJ3D).

Don’t forget to check out our other 3D Printing challenge: Will It Leak?, Will It Melt?, How Will It Grow?
