Powered by BASF Forward AM, Nexa3D’s three new photopolymers support a variety of applications with fast turnaround times

VENTURA, CA, May 3, 2021Nexa3D, the maker of ultrafast stereolithography production 3D printers, announced today it has expanded its partnership with BASF Forward AM to deliver three new ultrafast photopolymer materials through its expanding Nexa3D channels globally. Nexa3D’s collaboration with BASF Forward AM leverages their combined capabilities to deliver faster additive-manufactured prototypes across multiple industries, leveraging the 20X productivity advantage of its ultrafast NXE 400 3D printer. No other manufacturing process offers as many possibilities for greater design agility, supply chain resiliency and rapid implementation at every phase of the product lifecycle. Combining Nexa3D’s productivity with Forward AM’s rapidly expanding suite of tailor-made photopolymer formulations makes it possible for customers to rapidly design a wider range of parts such as housings, enclosures, pipes, packaging products, and footwear components with greater performance and functionality.

“Thanks to these new BASF materials and Nexa3D’s open materials platform, fast just got faster,” said Kevin McAlea, COO, Nexa3D. “Both companies are committed to democratizing access to scalable additive polymer solutions for the entire product life cycle from design to production. With NXE400’s 20X productivity gains and up to 85% lower total cost of ownership, manufacturers will benefit from higher productivity, better functionality and exceptional cost effectiveness.”

The three new materials will be available through Nexa3D’s growing network of resellers. Contact us to find a reseller near you, or to schedule your live 3D printing demo today via Zoom.
