Flexible is excellent for simulating soft-touch materials and adding ergonomic features to multi-material assemblies.
Flexible resin has elastomeric properties allowing you to print parts on the Form 1+ and Form 2 3D printers that are bendable and compressible. Parts are pliable when thin and resilient when thick. Flexible has compression characteristics that make it great for creating parts like custom grips, stamps, keypads, gaskets and wearable prototypes. It does not shatter upon failure making it ideal for high impact applications.
