PolyLactic Acid is a biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugarcane. As one of the most popular materials used for many applications ranging from plastic cups to medical implants. It is more cost effective than ABS and is one of the budget options of 3D prototyping overall.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a well-known thermoplastic, used for everyday applications such as LEGO, remote controls, electronic housings and automotive parts. Our machines work at tolerances of 0.1 mm and with good tensile strength ABS is adequate for many prototyping applications.
PETG is a very tough substance with good thermal resistance and especially suitable for mechanical parts and both indoor and outdoor use. PETG is of the same chemical composition as PET but with the addition of glycol. With just this one addition, the chemical composition is completely changed, creating a whole new plastic. PETG has zero warping, and printing large models isn’t a problem.
Acrylonitrile-styrene-acrylate (ASA) is an excellent alternative to ABS. The material has been specially developed to be more resistant to weather conditions. ASA is a 3D printer filament that is strong, stiff and relatively easy to print. The material is also extremely resistant to chemical influences and heat.
Resin or synthetic resin are UV-curing liquid plastics. These materials are used in stereolithography 3D printers. ... The liquid resin is exposed at the desired locations with the 3D printer, curing the resin. This technique makes it possible to produce components with high surface quality and level of detail.
