DuraSense® for 3D printing is a versatile material. It is a well-functioning alternative for support structures. Made from mostly renewable materials, DuraSense® offers an excellent sustainability profile. It is cost-competitive to most other bio-based materials and, additionally, its haptic perception resembles wood. It is a material easy to process, that doesn’t warp easily. All DuraSense® materials can be reused many times over if the material is recycled at the product’s end of life. Due to the wood fibers inside, the melting point is low.

  • Improved environmental footprint with wood-based biocomposites
  • Affordable and commercially available alternative
