Simulated Rubber Material
Elastico™ is a superior rubber-like PolyJet™ photopolymer family ideal for advanced design verification and rapid prototyping. Get more durable, tear-resistant prototypes that can stand up to repeated flexing and bending.
3D print rubber surrounds, overmolds, soft-touch coatings, living hinges, jigs and fixtures, wearables, grips and seals with improved surface texture.
Elastico Material Properties
Behaviour and use
With Rubber-like PolyJet photopolymers, you can simulate rubber with different levels of hardness, elongation and tear resistance. Available in two colours, clear and black, Rubber-like material enables you to simulate a very wide variety of finished products, from handles to footwear.
Create realistic prototypes to test and verify any design that includes rubber. Simulate soft-touch coatings, nonslip surfaces, rubber surrounds or overmolding. Test and verify grips, pulls, handles, gaskets or footwear. A range of Rubber-like and Digital Materials let you zero in on exactly the elastomer properties you need.
- Exhibition and communication models
- Rubber surrounds and over-molding
- Soft-touch coatings and non-slip surfaces for tooling or prototypes
- Knobs, grips, pulls, handles, gaskets, seals, hoses, footwear

Model-making with a 3D printer boosting business for Canadian architectural firm
Recently B+H Architects received delivery of a Stratasys 3D printer. Within a day, they were 3D printing architectural models. After just a couple of months, they were enjoying all the benefits of in-house, start-to-finish control over their architectural model-making that ensures both quality and on-time performance.
Canadian 3D Printing Expertise Contributes to Business Growth at Alta Injection Molding
With their in-house Stratasys 3D printer, AIM’s designers can quickly produce samples to test the fit and finish of their work. AIM is well known for quick turnaround and reducing time to market; it achieves that productivity, along with associated cost savings, by eliminating key steps between prototype and final product.
Canadian Company Oceanic 3D Print Replacement Parts for Harsh Marine Environments
Using SOLIDWORKS together with the Stratasys 3D printer allows Oceanic specialists to quickly turn concepts into physical parts and has given them new opportunities to do work in-house that was once sent to outside suppliers.
Carrotwerx Creative Lights Up Architectural 3D Printing in B.C.
Carrotwerx Creative purchased a Stratasys 3D Printer in order to offer Architectural 3D Printing and design services to Canadian customers in a boutique-style operation. Their Objet30 Pro PolyJet 3D printer that combines high-end rapid prototyping features and multiple materials with the small footprint of a desktop 3D printer.
In-house 3D Printing at Uni-Spray leads to impressive new contracts
At Uni-Spray Systems, In-house 3D Printing prototypes has been contributing to the company’s reputation for forward thinking and fast service for over 10 years. Acquiring a Stratasys 3D Printer was the next step in the evolution of 3D printing at Uni-Spray, and Javelin played an important role.
