3D printing + sugru = precision rubber parts [+ free sugru for the best ideas]


Hello! We are the team behind sugru

We’re super excited to see people starting to use sugru as a desktop manufacturing material for prototyping rubber parts – and making them for final products too!

So we developed this project so that makers, engineers and designers could test the process and understand how to works.

Check out this video to see how to combine 3D printing and sugru to make the most awesome iphone protection ever 🙂

All the files are open source and free to download from Thingiverse. You can also order your mold directly from Shapeways.

The mold and process is not perfect, but was developed to demonstrate the potential for using sugru in desktop manufacturing and we’d love to hear your suggestions.

Free sugru for the very best 3D printing + sugru ideas.
If you think you can push this technique further, we’re giving free sugru to the very best ideas. What would you like to try? Email your ideas to james@sugru.com

Sugru is in stock and shipping in the Adafruit store!
