Ultracur3D® RG 3280 Material Guide

What is Ultracur3D® RG 3280?

Let us introduce Ultracur3D® RG 3280, BASF’s first composite material addition to their rigid product line. This material is a ceramic filled resin, especially engineered to possess exceptional stiffness, unrivaled heat resistance, and remarkable electrical insulation properties, offering a new level of versatility, reliability and performance in the realm of 3D printed resins.

Ultracur3D® RG 3280 will deliver particularly startling results as an extremely stiff and heat resistant material, ensuring structural integrity and dimensional stability, even in the most demanding applications. With a Young’s modulus of 10 000 MPa, exceeding most traditional resins, this innovative material can withstand substantial forces without yielding, providing excellent load-bearing capabilities. 

As a result of this extraordinary stiffness, Ultracur3D® RG 3280 will prove especially valuable to design intricate mechanical components, as well as robust structural parts. 

Another impressive advantage of this resin is its outstanding heat resistance. In fact, benefitting from its ceramic particles’ great temperature resilience, Ultracur3D® RG 3280 is capable of withstanding temperatures exceeding 280 degrees Celsius. This characteristic makes it an enticing choice for applications in industries that encounter extreme thermal environments, such as aerospace, automotive or electronics.

In addition to these remarkable qualities regarding heat resistance and stiffness, Ultracur3D® RG 3280 possesses notable electrical insulation properties. Unaffected by electrical currents and exhibiting high dielectric strength, this resin offers a superior level of protection against electrical conductivity, making it an ideal choice for applications requiring insulation and isolation of electrical components.

Ultimately, Ultracur3D® RG 3280  provides exceptional rigidity, resistance to heat, and reliability, with a distinctive cold touch and smooth surface finish.

Lastly, it is worth mentioning that Ultracur3D® RG 3280 has been engineered to facilitate high precision, dimensional accuracy and fine resolution. In particular, this material would be particularly suited for the production of molds. If you’d like to produce molds, please contact us so that we can guide you through the best practices.

 This new formulation is an interesting addition to the continuously evolving range of 3D printing materials. Providing great freedom of design and versatility, while also being extremely rigid and resistant to heat, this is a material you don’t want to miss out on!

Pricing for Ultracur3D® RG 3280

The printing price of your design is calculated automatically the moment the 3D file is uploaded. As you modify your object (changing material, finishing, size, using our hollowing feature, etc.) you will note that the price changes automatically. The pricing is based on a series of factors, including total volume, object size, infill rate and bounding box – to name a few.

The estimated shipping time is also calculated automatically as the object is uploaded and each time you make a modification on it. Delivery time should be added to processing time.

How does DLP technology work?

In DLP 3D printing, a digital model is sliced into layers. A vat of photosensitive resin is prepared. A projector displays each layer onto the resin surface, solidifying the exposed areas. The build plate is lowered, and the process repeats for each layer, stacking them together. Support structures may be added. After cleaning and curing, the printed object is ready. DLP 3D printing offers speed and detail.

Colors and Finishings available for Ultracur3D® RG 3280

Please note that some support scars and bumps will still be visible if your parts are left raw. This is due to the support directly contacting your parts during the printing process. The support structures are removed during the post-processing steps. Upon request, your parts can be sanded and finished by our technicians.

This means there are considerations you should keep in mind during the design of your part, to facilitate not only the successful construction of your part but also the removal of support structures and the finishing of your surfaces.

      Angles under 45° require support structures.

      Please keep in mind that surfaces that have connection with support won´t be as smooth as the surfaces without support.

      overhangs & inside edges

      Support structures on edges, holes and corners are difficult to remove and sometimes it is not possible to do so.

      It is not possible to print a 3D file containing several objects, that’s why we cannot accept files that contain clusters of multiple objects. However, don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you’ll pay more for your multiple objects: to reduce the 3D printing cost, we set up a different price calculation as soon as you order two or more objects with this technology.
