Somos® NeXt

     DMX-SL Technology

Tough, High Strength Accurate Rapid Prototyping Material

Somos® NeXt produces parts that demonstrate an unprecedented combination of stiffness and toughness which typically characterizes thermoplastics, yet with all of the high feature detail, dimensional accuracy and aesthetics offered by Stereolithography.

With improved surface finish, moisture resistance and greater thermal properties, you can now functional test parts that simulate production materials...  It's the NeXt step closer to direct manufacturing.
