Ultra Detail Plastic

3D Printing

Ultra Detail Plastic

Ultra Detail Plastic is a part of the Vero family which consists of a range of materials viz., Vero WhitePlus, Vero Cyan, Vero Magenta etc. These are rigid, opaque materials which have shore hardness in the range of 83-86D. Due to its excellent feature retention capability, Ultra Detail Plastic parts are used in applications that require small, detailed features.

Ultra Detail Plastic comes in a pure white color and has a smooth surface finish. The parts can be made matte or glossy during manufacturing itself. This usually eliminates any need for post-processing operations. Since the parts are fabricated in Polyjet technology, they have support structure generation. These are wax-like supports which can be removed manually or with the help of a water-jet. Ultra Detail Plastic material can be blended with Tango-Elastic photopolymer to vary hardness, flexibility, translucency, and heat resistance.

Wall thickness

  • For a given part geometry, the minimum wall thickness should be at least 0.8mm.
  • For decent strength: 1.5mm.
  • For rigid wall: 2mm.

Minimum feature Thickness

  • The minimum supported feature thickness: At least 0.4 mm.

Support Structures

  • Since Ultra Detail Plastic parts are fabricated in Polyjet technology, support structures are generated on part geometries with overhangs and unsupported features.

Embossing and Engraving:

  • Recommended fonts for a clear, legible text: Arial, Gothic
  • Letter strand width: at least 0.5mm
  • Embossing height: at least 0.5mm
  • Engraving (cavity) depth: at least 0.5mm

Overhangs

  • If the length of the wall is greater than 50mm (5 cm), then a minimum wall thickness of 2mm should be kept to impart decent strength.
