MakerBot Tough 3D Printing Material

Engineered to 3D print parts that can hold up under stress.

MakerBot Tough is designed to be the go to 3D printing material for projects that require the strength and durability that standard PLA may not offer. It is engineered to have a higher impact strength, and a tensile and flexural strength that matches ABS. Now designers, engineers, product developers and manufacturers can 3D print parts on their MakerBot Desktop 3D printers that can be used for functional testing and manufacturing aid applications. Print with confidence, print tough.

Durable, Usable Parts

With double the impact-strength of ABS and similar tensile and flexural strength properties, MakerBot’s Tough filament gives users the durability for a wide variety of industrial applications that hold up under all types of stress.

Machine & Finish

Regardless of your design challenge, MakerBo Tough filament makes it simple to test and display your parts in real-world situations. Just easily put your printed part into the CNC or drill press, tap some threads, and bolt on a steel bracket. Sanding the surface and painting for a finished showcase piece is also an option with MakerBot’s Tough filament.
