FILAMENTS

Despite their vast array of properties, most 3D printing filaments share some common ground.  They all come as spools of thin plastic strand and are fed through a heated extruder nozzle to create 3D objects layer by layer.  They require specific temperatures for optimal printing, with some needing heated beds to prevent warping.  Most filaments are available in a wide range of colors, allowing for creative freedom in your designs.  However, the choice of filament ultimately depends on the desired properties of your final printed object, such as strength, flexibility, heat resistance, or printability.

TPE

TPU reigns supreme for flexible prints! This rubbery filament bends, stretches, and absorbs shock, making it perfect for phone cases, gaskets, and even wearables. Printing might require some tweaks, but TPU's versatility is worth it.

PETG

PETG filament offers the best of both worlds! Strong and chemical-resistant like ABS, it's easy to print like PLA. Plus, PETG comes in awesome colors, including clear, for stunning creations.

ABS

ABS filament is the tough guy of 3D printing. Strong, heat-resistant, and perfect for functional parts, it offers wider applications than PLA. Just be prepared for trickier printing due to warping.

TPU

TPU filament is the bendy hero of 3D printing! Super stretchy and shock-absorbing, it's ideal for flexible phone cases and more. Printing might be trickier, but TPU's versatility makes it a winner.

PP

PP filament brings practicality to 3D printing. It's chemical-resistant, flexible, and lightweight, making it ideal for functional parts. Prepare for trickier printing to avoid warping.

PLA

PLA filament, derived from plants like corn starch, is a dream for 3D printing newbies.  Budget-friendly and printing at cool temperatures, it minimizes warping for stress-free creation. Plus, PLA's vibrant color palette lets your imagination take flight!

PLA Wood

Take your prints to new heights with PLA wood! This filament blends PLA with wood fibers, creating objects with a realistic wood look and feel. It even retains a subtle wood scent! While a touch more delicate than PLA, it opens doors for unique prints with a rustic charm.

 PLA CF

PLA CF injects some muscle into your prints! This filament combines PLA with carbon fibers, making your creations stiffer and stronger than regular PLA.  It's perfect for functional parts that need to handle some stress, without the need for a high-end printer. Just remember, those carbon fibers are abrasive, so a hardened nozzle is recommended.
