3.5 kg (7.5 lb) hung from fiberglass-reinforced Onyx, Onyx, ABS, and PLA beams.
When To 3D Print With Fiberglass Material
Use fiberglass composite material to print parts that are an order of magnitude stiffer than typical 3D printed objects at the most affordable price.
End use parts
This steel housing needed to be firmly clamped into place for machining, but its irregular shape proved difficult to clamp. A 3D printed fiberglass-reinforced jaw provided a custom geometry that was strong enough to withstand clamping forces without marring the part.
FAQ What is fiberglass material?
Extremely thin strands of glass bundled together into a fiber. Fiberglass is traditionally used in composites for boat, automobile, and aircraft manufacture.
How strong is fiberglass?
Fiberglass has a flexural strength of 210 MPa (30.5 ksi) and a tensile strength of 590 MPa (85.5 ksi). For more information on 3D printed fiberglass material properties, check out the data sheet.
