Materials

In this page you will find short descriptions of the most common 3D printing materials and colours that we offer. If there is specific material or colour you’d like to use for your project and you don’t see it below. Please contact us directly through the contact us page. 

Colour Samples

PLA

PLA is a thermoplastic made from renewable resources. Best for non-mechanical parts, design concepts and visual pieces. 

  • Action Figures
  • Proof of Concepts
  • Architectural Models
  • End-use Products
  • Investment Casting
  • Intricate Models
  • Poor chemical resistance
  • Glass transition temperature of about 60 centigrade
  • Brittle

ABS

ABS provides good mechanical strength and temperature resistance. It is one of the most commonly used plastics (You are probably typing on an ABS keyboard right now!)

  • Proof of Concepts
  • End-use Products
  • Keyboards
  • Car parts
  • Casings and Enclosures
  • Spare Parts
  • Jigs
  • Gears
  • Structural Components
  • Durable
  • Great chemical resistance
  • Glass transition temperature of about 100 centigrade
  • Brittle material
  • Can be smoothed easily using acetone
  • Moderate UV and weather resistance

PETG

PETG is fully recyclable and extremely durable. Plastic bottles are made out of PETG. 

  • Proof of Concepts
  • End-use Products
  • Water Bottles
  • Gears
  • Design with Moving Parts
  • Structural Components
  • Great chemical resistance
  • Glass transition temperature of about 80 centigrade
  • Flexible material. Less brittle than PLA and ABS

TPU

TPU is a semi-flexible material. It is virtually impossible to break under regular conditions. 

  • Seals
  • End-use Products
  • Washers
  • Phone Cases
  • Grips
  • High Impact Components
  • Tyres and Wheels
  • Stamps
  • Replacement feet
  • Great chemical resistance
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Available at 85/91/96 Shore A Hardness
  • Elongation at yield of about 600% depending on the hardness
  • Resistant to hydrolysis and microbes
