Eastman Chemical Co. (Kingsport, TN) is aiding the rapid evolution of 3D printing with its Eastman Amphora 3D polymer. The material's toughness, ease of processing and printability is helping 3D-printing filament provider taulman 3D and desktop 3D printer developer Aleph Objects Inc. introduce new, advanced materials and printers to the market. The companies' collaboration provides complementary materials and desktop printers for the production of strong printed parts. Taulman 3D's upcoming material, n-vent, is made with Eastman Amphora and can be used with desktop 3D printers, such as Aleph Objects' LulzBot Mini for at-home printing or LulzBot TAZ for professional use.
