3D Printed Lacrosse Balls: Will It Break or Bounce?

Nine lacrosse balls were 3D printed for the experiment, using three different technologies – selective laser sintering (SLS), fused deposition modeling (FDM), and PolyJet.

At Xometry, we offer dozens of 3D printed polymers that have their unique strengths and ideal applications, but polymers are generally known for their durability. We wanted to put that durability to the test with some high-velocity impact! And sometimes the best way to do that….is by throwing stuff at a wall. See what happens when we did exactly that in this lacrosse balls-to-the-wall experiment.
