What Are The Desktop 3D Printer Supplies?
Nov 13, 2017

1. personal / desktop 3D printing consumables:

ABS: the scientific name is acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, which can be extruded and laminated to form a firm product. Generally speaking, the heating platform and the heating bin are needed to prevent the warp during printing. Acetone can be reprocessed later. Theoretically, ABS should be higher than PLA in strength, but the parameters and wire quality in the process of printing will largely determine the strength of the product.

PLA (lactic acid): a derivative of plant starch, which is similar in nature to ABS, but a little more brittle than ABS. There is no need to use heating platform, because it rarely curl when cooling, fan can improve the quality of printing. Smell is better than ABS, biodegradable.

PC (polycarbonate): low warpage, high strength and more flexible than ABS. Just extrusion temperature requirements higher than PLA and ABS, and some personal 3D printer can not reach.

Nylon: more flexible, without the need for heating platforms or fans, to obtain a high degree of detail print surface finish.  Taulman3D of America and 3ntr of Italy can produce this kind of wire.

LayWoo-d3: the product of regenerated wood combined with polymer adhesive can print a kind of wire similar to wood texture. When printing, the curl is low. After printing, it can be drilled and cut like a wood. So it looks, feels, and smells like real wood.

LayBrick: is a natural mineral filler (ultra-fine grinding white Zhitu) and nontoxic polyester mixture, LayBrick printing products and stone like texture. It can be used to make building models, which can be polished without heating platform.

Orbi-Tech, a maker of BendLay:LayWoo-D3 and LayBrick, introduced an improved version of ABS, known as high transparency and flexibility. Orbi-Tech suggests that BendLay should be used in places where ABS is too hard and PLA PLA (soften) is not tight enough. BendLay is not easy to curl up, manufacturers are more known as the wire for food safety, can be used in food packaging and medical equipment.

2. other types of printing materials

Food (food): sticky ingredients like butter can be used for printing, such as chocolate, cheese, sugar, etc., and can be printed through a syringe nozzle.

The United States Hyrel 3D company produced a desktop printer claims to be able to use the company production of EMO-25 (Emulsifiable Extruder, emulsion material extrusion, the extrusion device) is able to print some self hardening material, such as clay, clay, play DOH, RTV and Sugru silicone rubber.

Other types of printing materials currently being developed for Z Corp printers are paper, cement, salt, wood materials, and so on. These materials will be used for printing furniture and will eventually be used for printing houses and building components. D printers can print large cement configurations, mainly for repairing and building buildings.
