NYLON: (Polyamide)

Also called White, strong & flexible / Durable plastic / White plastic
Strong and flexible plastic
1mm minimum wall thickness
Naturally white, but you can get it colored
About 10 layers per 1mm
Made from powder
Alumide = Polyamide + Aluminum
Interlocking, moving parts possible (chain)



3D Printing Materials Guide

There are so many materials you can choose from when it comes to 3D printing that it’s often tough to decide on the right one. But do not fear! Tinkercad’s Materials Guide is here! Our easy-to-read guide will help you select the perfect material based on a few important factors, like type, minimum thickness, texture and the all-important cost. Whether you’re looking to 3D print a prototype or a unique 3D gift, our Materials Guide will help guide you through the process!

Polymide (Nylon)


url=https://vexmatech.com/pla-material.html]Polylactic Acid (PLA)[/url]

It is probably the easiest to work as well as environment friendly. It is basically bio degradable plastic that has been derived from sources such as corn starch and sugar canes. This is available in soft and hard grades. With the increase in the popularity of PLA, this material is expected to overtake ABS in the near future.

Polylactic acid (SOFT PLA)

It belongs to the softer version of the PLA that was discussed in the earlier point. It is rubbery and quite flexible but is available in limited colors and sources.

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)/ Home printers

It is popularly known as Lego plastic and is considered to be the best material to work with as it is strong and very safe. It is made from spaghetti like filaments. It is available in a wide range of colors and is used for making of toys, bumper stickers etc.

Polyvinyl Alcohol Plastic (PVA)

It is a type of plastic that is used as dissolvable support materials or is used for special applications. Makerbot and Shapeways are manufacturing lower-cost desktop printers like the Makerbot replicator 2; the material that these printers are using is PVA.

Polycarbonate (PC)
t requires a high temperature nozzle design and is not widely used.

Alloy 910


ABS: (Home printers)

Strong plastic like legos are
Made from spaghetti like filament
Many color options
About 3 layers per 1mm
1mm minimum wall thickness


RESIN: (Multiple options)

Also called White-, Black-, Transparent detail / White detail resin / High detail-, Transparent-, Paintable Resin
Rigid and a bit delicate
Liquid Photopolymer cured with UV light
White, black & transparent most typical colors
About 10 layers per 1mm
1mm minimum wall thickness

General Purpose Resins
To start, there are a number of firms producing 3D printing resins for desktop machines. Though many 3D printer manufacturers sell their proprietary materials, several generic brands have taken to making their own varieties for these systems, including MadeSolid, MakerJuice and Spot-A Materials.


Tough Resins
Typically photopolymer resins used for 3D printing on desktop machines are somewhat fragile, leaving those delicate details susceptible to snapping and cracking. For this reason, the technology has been used more frequently for aesthetic purposes, such as artistic models and visual prototypes. To address these issues, numerous companies have begun producing tougher and more durable resins.

Castable Resins


Casting has long been a process supported by photopolymerization technologies, with industrial manufacturers often marketing SLA and DLP machines to the dental and jewelry markets for the ability to fabricate parts that can be cast as metal. Naturally, producers of resins for desktop machines began with low-cost casting resins.

Flexible Resins

There are a limited number of manufacturers of flexible resins, including Formlabs, FSL3D and Spot-A Materials, all of which make a material for printing rubbery parts. This is ideal for prototyping elastic products, such as water bottles, handles and grips. Careful not to stretch too much or these components might tear!

High-Temp Resins
Formlabs, however, is so far the only low-cost manufacturer to produce a resin that can withstand high temperatures. The material has a heat deflection temperature (HDT) of 289 °C (552 °F) at a loading of 0.45 MPa , which is not just good for desktop SLA, but for all 3D printing photopolymers, including industrial systems. It can therefore be used for such applications as producing injection molding tools, testing channels designed for hot air or fluids and creating tools for thermoforming and casting.
