Sacrificial Tooling Material
ST-130™ is a model material for sacrificial tooling that simplifies the production of hollow composite parts.
Complex tools can be 3D printed and easily dissolved after curing, eliminating secondary processes like mold making and accelerating the development and production of composite structures.
Engineered and tested specifically for sacrificial tooling, ST-130 withstands the heat and pressure of autoclave curing.
And it 3D prints with a permeable triangle fill pattern designed to optimize build speed, conserve material and dissolve quickly, reducing production costs of parts through TriMech’s FDM 3D Printing Service.

Create Composite Tools
In this unique “how to” video, Stratasys visit Swift Engineering’s Kerry Dang as he takes us through the step by step process of creating a sacrificial tool for a complex, hollow inlet duct.
Create hollow composites faster and easier with temporary lay-up tools made from ST-130 material.

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Service
Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys FDM 3D Printer
Tough long-lasting parts
FDM technology works with engineering-grade thermoplastics to build strong, long-lasting and dimensionally stable parts with the best accuracy and repeatability of any 3D printing technology.
FDM parts are tough enough to be used as advanced conceptual models, functional prototypes, manufacturing tools and production parts.
Meet production demands
Our FDM production machines are as versatile and durable as the parts they produce.
With the largest build envelopes and material capacities in their class, we can provide longer, uninterrupted build times, bigger parts and higher quantities than other additive manufacturing service providers.
Gain new possibilities
TriMech's FDM 3D printing service will help to streamline your business processes from design through manufacturing, reducing costs and eliminating traditional barriers along the way.
Industries we work with are able to cut lead times and costs, we help clients to deliver better products and get to market faster.
