In late November 2015, ColorFabb announced the latest addition to their continually growing 3D printing filament portfolio:nGen. With nGen (next generation)ColorFabb aimed to develop a new all-rounder filament that could rival ABS and PLA without compromising on quality,speed, usability or performance. Certainly a tall order, even for an established filament manufacturer.

Welcome to another post in our Advanced 3D printing materials review series. This time, well have a look at another exciting type of 3D printing filament:Glow-in-the-Dark Filamentalso known asGlow Filament.

In this third post in our Advanced 3D printing materials review series, we are going to have a look at a very special kind of ABS:ABS+ from Trideus.If you have ever printed with ABS before, youll certainly know that ABS can be a tricky material to work with. It tends to warp and crack ABS+ is marketed as being low-warp and a lot easier to use. Enough reason to put it to the test!

Did you know that some of your 3D prints may have partially or completely failed just because of humidity contained in the filament you used? This sort of humidity is invisible to the naked eye, so you probably blamed your print settings, your 3D printer or even doubted your abilities, but all of that may actually not have been the cause of your problem: it was the humid filament.

Welcome to another post in our Advanced 3D printing materials review series. This time, well take a closer look at some more exciting 3D printer filament types and their inherent properties:Taulman Nylon 645 and Taulman Nylon 618. Keep on reading to find out how these materials can benefit your 3D printing projects.

In case you own a FFF 3D printer youundoubtedlyalreadydealtwith printadhesionissues. Sometimes it is really difficult to get a 3D print to stick to the build surface, especially when you are dealing with prints that have a large contact patch. The print will start to warp which means that it starts coming loose and may ultimately be knocked off the print bed altogether.

One of the most read and most shared article on our site is actually ourmaterials post, which we wrote nearly two years ago. We also have lots of information requests from 3D printing enthousiasts out there regarding different material types, printer settings for specific filament types or even requests to do specific 3D printing materials reviews. This led us to believe that there seems to be a real need to publish more information on what other materials exist for 3D printing, what can be done with them, what are their properties and specifications, etc. So we have been working on a series of follow-ups to our initial materials review, in which we only analysed the two main and most commonly available materials,ABSandPLA. The third one,PVAcan already be classified as a bit more of an exotic material.

Nowadays one of the biggest drawbacks in 3D printing is the relative high cost of filament, i.e. the 3D printer (thermo-)plastic, the consumable for your 3D printer. Prices for 3D printers have been continuously dropping, but filament prices did not really follow the same path. Agreed, filament availability is far better than 2 or 3 years ago, as are color choices. Even the materials for 3D printing are becoming more and more varied and readily available.

Cet article vous donnera une vue densemble rapide des consommables courants utiliss pour limpression 3D et expliquera les diffrences principales en des termes faciles comprendre pour les dbutants. Comme il a t dj expliqu dans notre article prcdent Quest-ce que limpression 3D?, il y a principalement deux genres dimprimantes 3D, celles de type industriel et celles destines aux consommateurs, galement connues en tant qu imprimantes 3D de bureau.

Dieser Artikel verschafft Ihnen einen schnellen berblick ber die aktuellen Verbrauchsmaterialien fr das 3D-Drucken und erklärt fr Anfänger leicht verständlich die wichtigsten Unterschiede. Wie schon in unserem vorherigen Artikel Was ist 3D-Drucken? erklärt wurde, unterscheidet man im Wesentlichen zwischen zwei Arten von 3D-Druckern: einerseits die großen, industriell eingesetzten Maschinen, andererseits die verbraucherorientierte Geräten bzw. Schreibtisch-3D-Druckern.

ABS Extrafill (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is a very strong and versatile material with great thermal resistance used forthe FFF (also known as FDM) 3D printing technology.

The advantage of this material is that it can be easily used in 3D printers, allowing high quality printing, resulting in excellent detail and lamination of the printed object. ABS filament is a polymer ideal for the production of first functional parts, before serial production for functional prototyping and manufacturing tools. Also for the production of goods for everyday use.

We guarantee precision dimensions of our filaments having +/- 0.05 mm tolerance, strictly controlled throughout the production.

Our filaments are produced in a wide variety of colors within the color charts RAL and Pantone. We also produce custom colors.

ABS is a great material for printing functional parts that require thermal resistance, little flexibility and toughness. For example ABS is the material used to make LEGO. For more information about ABS seeWikipedia.

Parts can withstand temperatures of up to 80 C without loosing strength

Parts can bevapor smoothedfor greater strength and better surface finish

Requires heated bed for prints without warping

All of our filaments are designed for FFF 3D printers, which means you can expect excellent work-ability with 3D printers likeUltimaker, Prusa i3 MK2,Solidoodlem,MakerBot ,FlashForge,Wanhao,Leapfrog,Be3D,MAKEiT,Airwolf,3D PrinterBot,Printerbot, Delta, Builder, Zortax, Lulzbot,UP! Plus, Up! Mini, Fusion3, Craftbot, Type A Machines, German RepRap, and a lot of more…basically if its a 3D printer, itll work!

Zortrax introduces new, resilient, flexible and convenient 3D printing filaments

3D Printing Industry first previewed theInventure 3D printerat theZortrax Experience Conference in June. At launch, the Inventure was capable of working with Z-PLA, Z-PETG, and Z-SUPPORT materials. The company has since expanded this range with 3 advanced filaments, boosting resilience, flexibility and post-processing convenience.

An ABS-based material, Z-ULTRAT Plus is Zortaxs solution for durable, strong and functional prototypes. The companys tagline for the product is The Real

Resilience highlighting its high impact resistance, and ability to withstand temperatures over 90 C.

In example use case for the material, Zortrax 3D printed a heater control valve, as used to regulate temperature in car engines. With the prototype, development engineers can conduct preliminary operation tests of the valves design, and pinpoint any areas for improvement.

Z-ULTRAT Plus is available in 6 different colors  blue, red, orange, graphite,

ivory and pure black. Combined, the colors can add clarity to a manufacturing prototype, enabling designers to pinpoint the exact parts for modification.

Z-ULTRAT Plus is also compatible with Zortraxs latest Z-Support Plus material. An upgraded of the standard Z-SUPPORT material (which is compatible with Z-PETG, Z-PLA and Z-SEMIFLEX) Z-SUPPORT Plus is engineered for the build chamber environment required to 3D print ABS-like filaments.

Both materials in the Z-SUPPORT range are soluble in water, making post-processing a breeze. For a fully hands-free experience, the user can simply put a part 3D printed with Z-SUPPORT into the Zortax Dissolvable Support System (DSS System). After soaking for some time, a completely residue-free part is removed like magic.

The solubility of this material makes it invaluable to complex 3D printed objects with moving parts.

Z-SEMIFLEX is plastic and rubber combined. Based on TPU, Z-SEMIFLEX is a hard, yet flexible material resistant to tearing, abrasion, impact and temperature over 130 C.

Items made from the material can be stretched, but retain their shape when resting. In a use case for the material,  Zortrax 3D printed a universal joint rubber boot, used to cover parts of machinery that would otherwise collect and debris like those found on a cars gearstick or serving as suspension springs in bikes. Typically, when covering a lever, rubber boots have to be lubricated. Z-SEMIFLEX handles grease and chemical resistance well.

Custom-made end use objects can be made in Z-SEMIFLEX, and the 3D printer filament is potentially suitable for spare-parts programs, or any prototypes subjected to intensive testing.

Zortraxs new range of Plus materials areavailable from the Zortrax online store. For notifications about additions to the range, visitors can alsosign-up for updatesdirectly from the provider.

Polymaker launches PolyBox™ to protect 3D printer filament

As the choice of materials becomes ever more exotic for the 3D printing industry, so does the way we store and print our materials. The biggest problem faced by materials is the moisture content thats absorbed into the filament from the surrounding environment. In humid habitats, hygroscopic materials such as PVA can spoil in a matter of hours, thePolyBox™shields the filament from the humid air, creating a dry environment to store your materials.

Moisture content in filaments can cause a multitude of problems from inconsistent extrusion to poor surface quality and ultimately delivering a printed part with weak mechanical properties due to poor layer adhesion. In environments with 20% humidity, water molecules are quickly absorbed into the filament forming polar bonds with the polymer chain. When the filament passes through the hot end the moisture rapidly expands, boiling and rupturing the filament. This causes bubbles in between layers, inconsistent extrusion due to material expansion and poor surface quality due to the fluctuating flow rate. Materials such as PVA, Nylon and PolySmooth™ are particularly susceptible to moisture absorption, however ABS, Polycarbonate and PLA are also hygroscopic.

The PolyBox™ is a dry storage box that allows you to print and store your filaments in their optimum environment ensuring the best printing quality from the beginning of the spool to the end. The PolyBox™ comes with 150cm of filament guide tube, to ensure the filament is protected from the spool to the hot end. There are six filament exit holes located on a reversible case so no matter if your printer feeds from the front, back or side, there is an orientation that will suit your set up.

The PolyBox™ regulates humidity with large desiccant bags located in the base of the unit. This cheap, simple solution provides a dry environment to store and print filaments and the desiccants can be dried and reused once they have reached their maximum water absorption. Four bearing clad steel rods allow two spools to spin independently for dual extrusion or the PolyBox™ can store one 3kg spool for long prints or industrial use. The humidity inside the box can be monitored by a high precision thermo-hygrometer located on the front of the unit.

The PolyBox™ is a simple solution to the growing problem of properly storing 3D printing filaments. With Polymaker Industrial offering 4 grades of Nylon and Polymaker launching their own Nylon next year, the need to properly store your filaments is more prominent now than ever. As innovative materials unlock new doors in the 3D printing industry, why should we be held back by moisture absorption?

PolyBox™ is available to purchase from the 25thof September worldwide, MSRP $69.99, €69.99

Types of 3D Printing Materials

There is a wide range of 3D printing materials that are currently available in the industrial market and that is being developed for the consumer market.

Here is an overview of 3D printing materials that are available across all 3D printing technologies, which include plastics, metals, ceramics and various other 3D materials.

Plastics or polymers are the most common type of 3D material used, especially for desktop 3D printers. Plastics are used by both industrial and consumer markets. In the consumer market, a desktop 3D printer heats the plastic filament to a temperature range of 320-482F. The heated plastic is then extruded onto a print bed layer by layer until the 3D object is completed. Here is a image of plastic 3d material below.

For industrial users, plastics can be heated by UV lasers and then used to form the printed object in a similar manner, layer by layer.

Types of plastic filaments includeABS(Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene),PLA(Polylactic Acid),PVA(Polyvinyl Alcohol),PC(Polycarbonate) andHDPE(High Density Poly Ethylene).

The two most common types of plastics that are currently being used for desktop 3D printers are ABS and PLA. ABS and PLA have unique properties that provide advantages and disadvantages. ABS, petroleum based plastic, is known to be a more durable and heat resistant plastic but gives off strong fumes when heated. On the contrary, PLA, plant based plastic, gives off less irritable fumes but has a lower melting and breaking point.

Other type of 3D materials is metal. Using metal for 3D printing is relatively new and is gaining traction in many industries, including automotive and aerospace. To fabricate a metal 3D printed object, metal is typically heated by a laser and placed layer by layer. Here is an image of a 3D printed metal part below.

Army Researchers Use 3D Printers for Rapid Prototypes

Types of metals available include steel, aluminum and titanium. Precious metals are also being used as 3D materials, such as gold and silver.

Ceramics is another type of 3D material. Ceramic 3D printed objects are using droplets of liquid binder on top of a thin layer of ceramic powder, followed by another layer of ceramic powder.

To finish a ceramic 3D printed object, series of heat treatments are required to dry, fire, and glaze the 3D printed object.

As 3D printing technology continues to expand and mature, more 3D materials will be available, including composites, paper, plaster, wood, organic (tissue/cells), nylon, food, and concrete. This list is sure to grow to include many more materials that can contribute to useful 3D printed objects.
