Materials

ABS

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.

 

FLEX (POLYPROPYLENE) RUBBER

Flexible filament is used more and more in 3D printing and has started to bite into the needs for rubber casting from a mould, again, tolerances are .1 mm. Our filament is basically printable rubber, allowing you to create complex elastic designs that would otherwise be impossible in moulds.

 

NYLON WITH CARBON

Nylon- Carbon is a high quality material. It is made up of 2 different fibres: nylon and chopped carbon. Nylon gives to the filament a high resistance while carbon gives lightness making it very easy to print. This particular material is 3.5 times stronger than Nylon as the Carbon reinforces it. Printing with this material we can print down to 0.1mm and tolerances being even smaller.

 

PLA

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.

 

Nylon 12

Alongside both PLA and ABS, Nylon, also known as polyamide, along with our Nylon/Carbon material this is also a high-end thermoplastic. It has extreme strength and durability. The material is also the choice of many that requires finishing like screwing, tapping or drilled.

 

PETG

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.
