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.
