3D Printing – Univers of Possibilities

Using a 3D printer opens the door to a universe of possibilities. There are many choices of filament feedstock for 3D printers.
Filaments for 3D printers: from everyday to truly creative
There¬†is¬†one¬†universal¬†need¬†that¬†connects¬†the¬†various¬†applications¬†of¬†a¬†3D¬†printer:¬†filament.¬†Of¬†the¬†many¬†filament¬†(filament)¬†feedstock¬†options¬†for¬†3D¬†printers,¬†here¬†we¬†look¬†at¬†common¬†“everyday¬†printing”¬†filaments¬†such¬†as¬†PLA¬†and¬†PETG,¬†as¬†well¬†as¬†fancy¬†types¬†that¬†allow¬†you¬†to¬†print¬†really¬†creatively¬†(also¬†often¬†referred¬†to¬†as¬†“exotics“).
In addition to the common thermoplastics that include the usual types of 3D printer filament (such as the aforementioned PLA and PETG), 3D printer filament can or consists of nylon, polycarbonate, carbon fiber, polypropylene, and many others! There are even special composite materials that can conduct electricity or glow in the dark!
With¬†this¬†variety,¬†it’s¬†easier¬†than¬†ever¬†to¬†create¬†functional,¬†visually¬†expressive,¬†and¬†highperformance¬†prints¬†from¬†a¬†variety¬†of¬†exciting¬†plastics.¬†With¬†this¬†in¬†mind,¬†we¬†present¬†our¬†buyer’s¬†guide¬†for¬†the¬†3D¬†printer¬†filament.¬†Explore¬†the¬†four¬†sections¬†and¬†you’ll¬†find¬†a¬†total¬†of¬†30¬†filament¬†material¬†categories:

Basic filament types for 3D printer
The first category represents the six most commonly used 3D printer filament types in desktop 3D printing, popular for their ease of use and their physical properties.
