The materials we have available include:
PLA (Polylactic Acid) is one of the most popular filament materials for FFF 3D printing. It is a thermoplastic derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugarcane, and so – with the right conditions – it is biodegradable.
It has a lower printing temperature than ABS, another popular filament material. Though not as strong as ABS, it is less likely to warp and it’s often capable of printing a sharper finish.
Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon, and Stainless Steel adds chromium to this combination. It offers the high strength of steel, while the addition of chromium provides a high level of resistance to corrosion.
It is also easy to clean and sterilise, and so it is commonly used in kitchenware, surgical instruments and other major appliances.
PA12 (Polyamide 12, also known as Nylon 12) is a member of the widely-used nylon family of synthetic thermoplastics.
It is extremely strong, stiff and resistant to cracking under stress – properties it retains even at temperatures below freezing. It absorbs little moisture, and along with its excellent resistance to chemicals, this makes it good for applications containing hydraulic fluids, oils and fuels.
Resins are UV-curing liquid plastics, used by DLP/MJP/SLA 3D printers. Since the resin is photosensitive, it can be cured by a laser and transformed into a solid part. The technique allows parts to be printed with very high surface quality and a high level of detail.
This variant is a PC like resin used for DLP printers.
Flexible, durable material
A real wax material designed for investment casting (also known as precision-casting or lost-wax casting). Using this high-performance, durable wax allows for the creation of high-fidelity casting patterns, with sharp edges, fine feature definition and smooth surfaces.
