Types of 3D Printing Materials

3d printing material type - abs filament

ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene)

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, or ABS for short, is the most common type of filament. It is an economical plastic notable for its low degree of shrinkage and warping. Examples of ABS can be seen in piping and desktop accessories.


3d printing material type - pla filament

PLA (Polylactic Acid)

Polyalactic Acid, or PLA, is a common type of biodegradable filament often derived from recycled materials. PLA is available in hard or soft grade and can be extruded at a low nozzle temperature. PLA is frequently used in disposable tableware, bags, and packaging.

PVA (Polyvinyl Alcohol)

Polyvinyl Alcohol, PVA, is a water-soluble resin. PVA is most often used as a dissolvable adhesive, such as that seen on mailing envelopes. In 3D printing, PVA is used as for supporting layers for harder substances, such as ABS.

Nylon

Nylon is a synthetic polymer found in such items as ropes, tents, umbrellas, and travel bags. Its durability, strength, and low cost make it an increasingly popular choice of filament.
