EMERYVILLE, CA, Apr 22, 2015 – MadeSolid Inc., the leader in advanced materials for 3D printing, announced that it has started production of FlexSolid, a new filament that up to doubles the speed on Type A printers. FlexSolid dramatically increases the quality of flexible 3D prints. FlexSolid will be available from resellers and directly at MadeSolid.com in early May.
“FlexSolid is elastic, stretchable and tough,” said MadeSolid CEO Lance Pickens. “It’s the latest in a series of firsts we’ve achieved in the advanced materials space, and represents a big step forward in our quest to transform the way the world designs and manufactures products.”
FlexSolid’s combination of strength and elasticity makes it ideal for companies and creative professionals in an array of sectors who are seeking to design, prototype and manufacture flexible products quickly, easily, efficiently and at scale.
