Chemicals company DSM has formed a partnership with additive manufacturing (AM) company Origin to develop new materials for AM and explore new applications.

The companies have been working together to improve DSM’s photopolymer material for Origin’s programmable photopolymerization (P3) technology. Somos PerFORM HW will be the first DSM material to be used in Origin 3D printers. It is suitable for applications that require strong, stiff, and high temperature resistant parts, such as aerodynamic modeling and rapid tooling.

‘We’re excited that DSM is joining our open network of material partners and broadening the potential applications available to our users,’ said Chris Prucha, Origin CEO.
