Material

Stainless Steel (SS316L)

Stainless Steel (SS316L) is a low-carbon nickel-chromium-molybdenum based steel alloy that combines excellent strength, high ductility, and good thermal properties. With its high resistance to corrosion and pitting, including chemical corrosion, this material is suitable for food-safe applications, wearables, machine components, and medical instruments, amongst others.

Actual values may vary with build conditions.


Strong tensions due to part geometry may distort parts, potentially leading to greater deviation in values. Values for surface roughness depend on the orientation of the surface; downward-facing surfaces and surfaces with support will be rougher.


These values show the material characteristics with additional stress relief heat treatment. Extra heat treatment steps or aging for even higher mechanical properties may be possible, e.g. for serial-produced parts.
