MATERIAL GUIDE

PLA (Polylactic Acid):

    – PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic filament derived from renewable resources like cornstarch or sugarcane.

    – It’s known for its ease of use, minimal warping, and low odour during printing.

    – However, it has lower temperature resistance compared to some other filaments, limiting its use in high-temperature environments.

    -PLA is commonly used for decorative items, artistic prints, and prototypes with no specific functional requirements.

    PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol):

        • PETG combines the ease of printing of PLA with the durability of ABS.

        • It’s resistant to moisture and UV radiation, making it suitable for outdoor applications.

        • PETG is used for water bottles, mechanical parts, and consumer products.

        • It has less warping compared to ABS and doesn’t emit strong odours during printing.

      TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane)

        • TPU is a flexible and elastic filament with excellent resistance to abrasion.
        • It’s ideal for creating soft, rubber-like items such as phone cases, shoe soles, and gaskets.
        • TPU is popular for making functional prototypes requiring flexibility and impact resistance.
        • It offers good layer-to-layer adhesion and is relatively easy to print with.
