Sterilization Protocol for MED-AMB 10 and MED-WHT 10

3D Systems’ Infocenter Moves to Salesforce

The Infocenter has been the 3D Systems portal for customer-facing and service-facing product documentation (for example videos, software downloads, and material SDSs).  

As of Sept 26, 2022, the Infocenter content will be moved to Salesforce and will be accessible through the Salesforce Community

Service Documentation Only

To access service documentation, you will need to sign into Salesforce Community using your Salesforce username and password. Everyone trained and currently authorized to service a particular printer will be able to access its service documentation.

For Figure 4 MED-AMB 10 and MED-WHT 10 materials, it may be necessary to sterilize cured, finished parts to be used in certain medical applications. You can sterilize printed parts by making use of an autoclave or using gamma-ray sterilization. Do not use a dishwasher or thermal disinfector. 3D Systems recommends the following autoclave method as a baseline starting point for sterilization:

  1. Ensure printed parts are fully cleaned and cured before sterilizing them.
  2. Place your part in a standard sterilization pouch.
  3. Apply sterilization by placing the pouch containing the part in an autoclave for 15 minutes at 121°C or 3 minutes at 138°C. Make sure no mechanical forces are applied to the part during sterilization.
  4. Let the part cool down to room temperature before using it. Make sure no mechanical forces are applied to the part during cool-down.

NOTE: The above protocol is a recommended starting point and may not be appropriate for all cases. Different geometries and use may require adjustment of this protocol to maximize effectiveness.


If using an autoclave for sterilization, you will notice that your part will change color with the sterilization process. This is normal. Please see the before/after images below for reference.

NOTE: Autoclave sterilization may impact the mechanical properties. Small drops in tensile strength, elongation at break, and impact strength may occur. Such changes are typically less than 20%. Use cases that are sensitive to that should be validated.
