Multi 3D Printer Substance


Many different materials can be used for 3D printing, such as ABS plastic, PLA plastic, polyamide (nylon), glass filled polyamide, stereolithography materials (epoxy resins), silver, titanium, steel, wax, photopolymers and polycarbonate.

As mentioned above of the material type, This common types of 3D Printing Materials are seldom used in our home use,So we'll analyze 3 of the most common PLA, ABS, and PETG home 3D printers substance.

Conventional home use materials typically come in two sizes:1.75mm and 3mm in diameter.

We will analyze the advantages and disadvantages of these three materials and some of the hardware requirements of the 3d printer. let you can more clearly choose your 3D printer what materials should be used.


PLA as a Recommendation for 3D Printer Substance



Afinia-PLA Substance


PLA may be the most widely used material in our home use.In our Alunar online store consumables, there are sold this PLA 3D Printer filament,if you are interested you can go to see.

Advantage:

1. Biodegradable materials, environmental protection

2. Printing products high gloss

3. Liquidity is good, printing products are not easy to split

4. Printing a large area products are not easy to get warped

5. Printing process without odor distribution


Shortcoming:

1. Is not easy to remove support

2. Low impact resistance, low strength


PLA Material Print Parameter:

Nozzle temperature: 200-210℃(φ1.75mm) 220-230℃(φ3.00mm)

Platform temperature: 50-60℃


ABS as a Recommendation for 3D Printer Substance



3D Printer ABS Substance


Advantage:

1. Excellent mechanical properties, excellent impact strength

2. Easier to remove support

Shortcoming:


1. Printing a large area of products easy to get warped

2. The hot bed needs to be heated up to 80-110 degrees centigrade

3. When printing will have a plastic dissolved flavor

4. Printing products easy to crack, not easy to sticky bottom


ABS Material Print Parameter

Nozzle temperature: 220-230℃(φ1.75mm) 230-240℃(φ3.00mm)

Hot bed temperature: 80-110℃


PETG as a Recommendation for 3D Printer Substance



3D Printer PETG Substance


Advantage:

1. Printing products high gloss

2. Good compression resistance, high strength

3. Liquidity is good, printing products are not easy to split

4. Printing process without odor distribution


Shortcoming:

1. Is not easy to remove support

2. Printing a large area of products easy to get warped


PETG Material Print Parameter

Nozzle temperature: 220-230℃(φ1.75mm) 230-240℃(φ3.00mm)

Hot bed temperature: 110℃
