RE: [rp-ml] STL file of a card holder with a hinge

The Eden machines cannot run multiple materials in the same build like
the Connex machines can. In my experience the flexible Objet materials
do not age well. Their tear strength decreases greatly with UV exposure
from natural light.
Happy Christmas and new year to all in the additive / rapid world.

You should take a look at the Eden(tm) or Connex(tm) from Objet(tm)
Geometries. They specialize in multi-material RP machines that are a
perfect fit for hinges. You can build a very accurate, solid frame for
the hinge -AND- during the same build apply a flexible material in the
hinge location. There are 11 different materials to choose from,
including blending of different materials to fit your exact needs. Try
looking up your local Objet(tm) sales office and contact them for .STL
models. I'm sure they would be very happy to assist you.

Hello everyone,


I am working on the design-material-process properties of hinges and I
found a card-holder which has a mechanical hinge (made on a FDM
Stratasys machine) but unfortunately I don't have the STL file for it. I
would be grateful if someone could send it to me.


I am also looking for any other information (design features,
problematic areas, materials, etc) you could give me regarding hinges
made by AM techniques.
