Acceleration Station Logo

This 3D printing materials guide includes materials used in the Acceleration Station™, powered by the Carbon® Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS™) process. These additive manufacturing materials are used for prototyping and producing real, functional parts. These materials uniquely combine excellent mechanical characteristics, high resolution, and exceptional surface quality into isotropic parts ready for real-world products.
