Nylon – FDM
Nylon is a tough, stiff engineering material with excellent bearing and wear characteristics. Nylon is widely used to replace metal bearings and bushings, removing the requirement for external lubrication in the process. Other advantages include reduced part weight, reduced operation noise, and reduced mating part wear.
Nylon White – Markforged
Nylon White outperforms Markforged original Tough Nylon material in terms of strength, stiffness, and dependability. The surface of the material is smooth and non-abrasive, and it can be reinforced with any of our continuous fiber material alternatives.
Nylon PA12 – HP
Nylon PA12 objects are made from a fine polyamide powder, often known as plastic, and are printed using HP. Because of its high precision and affordable cost, Nylon PA12 is ideal for both experienced designers and newcomers. The good mechanical qualities of this nylon material will be used in more sophisticated additive manufacturing applications, and it could even be used to replace injection molding plastic.
ABS – FDM
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is a long filament looped around a spool that is utilized by 3D FDM or FFF printers. The 3D printer is easy to use: the ABS strand is fed into an extrusion head or extruder, which melts the ABS plastic by heating it to its melting temperature. The substance is liquefied and then applied layer by layer on a printing platform (which may be a table).
PLA – FDM
PLA stands for polylactic acid, which is a polymer manufactured from renewable resources. In contrast to other thermoplastics that are petroleum-based, maize starch, tapioca roots, and sugarcane are some of the raw materials utilized to make PLA. However, its qualities are equivalent to those of other plastics used in the industry.
PETG – FDM
Polyethylene terephthalate glycol, typically called PETG or PET-G, is a thermoplastic polyester that gives extensive chemical resistance, durability, and notable formability for production. PETG may be effortlessly vacuumed and pressure-fashioned in addition to the heat-bent way to its low forming temperatures. This makes it exceedingly famous for patron and industrial programs that contain 3-D printing, or different heat-forming production strategies. Additionally, PETG is well-suitable for fabrication strategies like die-cutting, routing, and bending.
