Somos® Taurus is the latest addition to the high impact family of stereolithography (SLA) materials from DSM Additive Manufacturing. Parts printed with this material are easy to clean and finish. The higher heat deflection temperature of this material increases the number of applications for the part producer and user.

Key Benefits for 3D Printing 

  • Superior strength and durability
  • Wide range of applications
  • Excellent surface and large part accuracy
  • Heat tolerance up to 90°C
  • Thermoplastic-like performance, look and feel


By using Somos® Taurus to print your parts, you get the added value of excellent surface quality and isotropy, enabling reduced job times for highly detailed parts with more uniform performance. The darker color of Somos® Taurus also gives an added richness to your parts to minimize part finishing and painting making it a great choice for the automotive and aerospace industries.
