Why Choose BioMed Elastic 50A Resin?

Fuel medical innovation using 3D printing and BioMed Elastic 50A Resin, from comfortable, patient-specific medical devices to soft tissue medical models surgeons can reference in the operating room (O.R.)


Produce mass-personalized, medical-grade parts that are comfortable and feel great.


Produce soft tissue models that feel similar to human tissue and deliver biomechanical behaviors that are ideal for creating full-size hearts, gastrointestinal models, or small complex neurovascular models to bring into the O.R.


Parts produced using this material appear transparent and clear to view how tools or objects flow within parts.

Medical-Grade Material, Biocompatible Parts

Leverage a material manufactured within our Quality Management Systems, with strict adherence to ISO 13485. Instill confidence that this material is suitable for biocompatible applications with long-term skin (>30 days), short-term mucosal membrane contact (<24 hours), and USP Class VI certifications.


Directly 3D print soft, elastic parts requiring biocompatibility with BioMed Elastic 50A Resin. Reduce workflow times by eliminating molding to directly produce comfortable, patient-specific medical devices or soft tissue medical models surgeons can reference in the O.R.

BioMed Elastic 50A Resin is ideal for:

Comfortable medical devices requiring long-term skin contact
Soft tissue models, including organs, muscle, skin, and small vasculature

*Material properties may vary based on part geometry, print orientation, print settings, temperature, and disinfection or sterilization methods used. Data were measured on post-cured samples printed on a Form 3B/+ with 100µm BioMed Elastic 50A Resin settings, washed in a Form Wash for 20 minutes in 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. BioMed Elastic 50A Resin was tested at NAMSA World Headquarters, OH, USA.
