Tough 2000

Tough and Durable for Rugged Prototyping

Formlabs® Tough 2000 simulates ABS in terms of stiffness and strength and is used for 3D printing functional parts such as housings and enclosures, jigs and fixtures, mechanical connectors, and prototypes undergoing wear and tear.

Tough2000. Engineered for better, stronger, and more rigid plastic.

Consider using Tough 2000 Resin to create resilient prototypes and components that can withstand bending. This resin is perfect for applications that require long-lasting endurance and minimal deflection. Its strength and stiffness are similar to ABS plastics, which ensures that functional parts and fixtures are reliable.
