This guide for 3D printing materials is all you need to know about polymers to have the best results with 3d Printing
This compact guide for 3D printing materials intends to provide information for the optimal use of polymer-based filaments produced by us in the 3D printing industry.
Through this information, we hope to give you all of the necessary information needed to choose the ideal material required for the specific application. This guide will lay out specific characteristics of the most widely used polymers in the industry, offering a quick and comprehensive look at each 3D printing material.
“Here at TreeD Filaments we think that the progress is easier to reach if we all share a bit of the knowledge we own and make it available for the others.”
The considered material data refers to filaments produced by the 3D printing filament company TreeD, The data was borrowed from industrial production and is commonly used in industrial fields. The guide does not consider any materials that are uncertain or non-existent in the industrial market. Some materials may consist of small additivities to enhance the 3D printing process. Therefore, the following information comes from both major plastic materials manufacturers data-sheets, as well as our own manufacturing experience and practice, which was aided by top-notch research laboratories.
