PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugarcane. It is used for low-cost, non-functional prototyping. Offers greater detail than ABS, but is more brittle. Unsuitable for high temperature applications. Comes in a range of colors, property and finish options such as silk, glow in the dark and color change in temperature.
Woodfill PLA contains wood, bamboo, or cork-based pulverized material, resulting in FDM parts with a unique wood-like appearance.
contains steel, copper, brass, bronze or other metal particles that give parts a metallic surface finish and unique properties.
is a food-safe, recyclable, and water-tight material which is great to use for cups, plates, statues, or figurines.
filament is used to create parts with purpose, like tools, grates, architecture model or finishing components that require a marble texture.
is a biological material made from corn grain refining and natural color degradation and does not affect the environment. H-PLA is tougher than ordinary PLA. H-PLA temperature can withstand 100 ℃, ordinary PLA can only withstand 60-70 ℃. The surface finish is bright, glossy and smooth. The processing is odorless and the material does not curl or warp during printing.
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)
has good mechanical properties, with excellent impact strength, superior to PLA, but less defined details. Commonly used for enclosure prototypes.
is a filament that can support low-voltage circuitry. Often used for coupling circuit boards with LEDs and sensors for customized electronic projects.
PC- ABS (Polycarbonate - ABS)
is commonly found in automotive, electronics, and telecommunications applications, it is one of the most widely used industrial thermoplastics in the world.
Flame Retardant - ABS
is made using a premium UL94 V-0 rated ABS. This filament is ideal for applications that require UL94 V-0 self-extinguishing characteristics.
PetG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol)
is a thermoplastic material with improved mechanical properties over PLA and excellent chemical and moisture resistance.
PetG - Carbon Fibre
is the ideal filament for anyone that desires a structural component with high modulus, excellent surface quality, dimensional stability, light weight, and ease of printing.
is a rubber-like, flexible material that can bend and compress. Lacks the performance of true rubber.
HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene)
typically plays a different role. 3D printers can’t print onto thin air. Overhangs require some underlying structure, and this is where HIPS really shines. When paired with ABS in a dual extrusion printer, HIPS is an excellent support material. Simply fill any gaps in your design with this 3D printer filament, then melt it away by immersing the finished product in limonene, a colorless liquid hydrocarbon.
PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol)
is soluble in water, and that’s exactly what commercial applications are take advantage of. Popular uses include packaging for dishwasher detergent “pods” or bags full of fishing bait. (Throw the bag in water and watch it dissolve, releasing the bait.) The same principal applies in 3D printing, making PVA a great support material when paired with another 3D printer filament in a dual extrusion printer. The advantage of using PVA over hips is that it can be printed with more than just ABS. Common substitutes include PLA and Nylon.
is an engineering plastic with good mechanical properties and exceptional heat, chemical and flame resistance. Suitable for top-end applications.
