MaterialCharacteristicsApplications
Tough PLA• Similar tensile, impact, and flexural strength to ABS
• Greater durability than PLA - which means it can flex more than PLA before it breaks
• Warps less than ABS during printing, which makes for more reliable print results
• Durable, high-impact strength prototypes and fixtures
• Suitable for threading and for snap fits that can withstand repeated use
PLA• Bio-based material
• Biodegradable at end of life
• Environment-friendly
• Excellent part quality, surface finish, and resolution
• High stiffness
• Good barrier properties
• Ease of printing
• Prototypes and models
• Toys and consumer goods
• Durable goods
• Packaging applications
ABS• Light weight engineering thermoplastic
• High impact resistance and toughness
• High impact even at cold temperatures
• Excellent creep resistance (or resistance to deformation under mechanical stress
• Easy secondary operations like finishing, welding, and bonding
• Longer lifespan than PLA
• Durable and functional prototypes and models
• Protective gear
• Automotive parts
• Cases and housings for electronics
• Electronics accessories
• Protective carrying cases
• Toys and sporting goods
Dissolvable• Dissolves in limonene, a common citrus-scented solvent.
• Limonene is a nontoxic solvent made from orange rinds. It’s a common, colorless, citrus-scented solvent
• Available online and in grocery and home stores.
• Used for support structure, which simplifies post-processing of parts and shortens the time to finish them
