ABS vs PLA Material : Product Designers Guide

ABS vs PLA filament

ABS vs PLA It is important to determine the right material for obtaining the best 3D Printing results. So let’s say that you have selected a suitable 3D Printer, bought it at a reasonable price, and have also started creating comparatively simpler objects on it… But have you actually selected the right material for the …

Nylon

Nylon Nylon or PA2200 is a polyamide 12 compound. Nylon is white in color and comes with an inherent grainy surface finish. Since Nylon parts are fabricated in Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology, there is no support structure generation, making it suitable for parts which are complex and which have intricate geometries and moving part …

Glass-Filled Nylon

Glass-Filled Nylon Glass-Filled Nylon (GF) or PA3200 is a reinforced material (polyamide-12 + 30 % Glass-Filled). GF is off-white in color and comes with an inherent grainy surface finish. Since GF parts are fabricated in Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) (SLS) technology, there is no support structure generation, making it suitable for parts which are complex …

PP-equivalent plastic

PP-equivalent plastic

PP-equivalent plastic PP-equivalent plastic is a resin-based material simulating the properties of Polypropylene. It is opaque in nature and comes in a milky white color. The parts have an inherent smooth surface finish. Since PP-equivalent parts are fabricated in Stereolithography (SLA) (SLA) technology, there is support structure generation under the overhanging and protruding features. Therefore, although …

PC-equivalent plastic

PC-equivalent plastic PC-equivalent plastic is translucent (50–60% transparency) and comes with an inherent smooth surface finish. PC-equivalent plastic is a resin-based material simulating the properties of Polycarbonate. It is translucent (50–60% transparency) and comes with an inherent smooth surface finish. Since PC-equivalent parts are fabricated in Stereolithography (SLA) technology, there is support structure generation under the …

abs material properties

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene or ABS, as it commonly referred to, is a widely used thermoplastic throughout the industry. ABS material comes in the form of a filament and is processed in Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology. ABS material is white in color but also comes in varied filament color options. Since ABS plastic parts are fabricated layer …
