Application: Desk toys and prototypes and our most common type of print
Pros: biodegradable, food safe (one time use), rigid and easy to print.
Cons: brittle and has a low melting point
Application: pipe systems, durable projects that need high heat resistance, lego
Pros: Higher strength, durable, acetone smoothing looks amazing
Cons: complicated print, costly
Application: petg is the same plastic found in water bottles, soap dispensers, and many other items.
Pros: Glossy and smooth, water resistant and heat resistant.
Cons: poor bridging characteristics, tends to be stringy, is denser and parts end up weighing more.
Application: Durable projects that need high heat resistance, high UV resistance, and high chemical resistance.
Pros: Glossy and smooth, water resistant and heat resistant
Cons: poor bridging characteristics, tends to be stringy.
Application: Flexible designs, such as mask straps
Pros: Flexible, dimensionally accurate, chemical resistant
Cons: poor bridging characteristics, tends to be stringy, takes longer than other materials to print.
We will also print in rare blends of filament, such as carbon fiber, and nylon. Furthermore, there are many blends of each filament that we use. These different blends have slightly different characteristics, but the general features remain the same. Furthermore, filaments come in different colors, textures, and finishes. You can request unique looking filaments that are glossy, matt, silky, etc. The only limitation is your imagination.
