Different types of threads are used for different objects and possess different properties. For example the most commonly known is ABS, which may be used almost in every sphere (electronics, instruments, moving components, pipes etc.), is very durable, light and slightly flexible, but exhausts dangerous fumes and require high temperatures. PLA, on the other hand, is made from corn starch and similar eco-friendly renewable sources, has low temperature requirement, doesn’t have any odor. It’s used in medicine and surgery, as well as hygiene products and food packaging.

Together with common materials we offer ones that are unusual in printing, such as nylon, polycarbonate and polyethylene and glass. Nylon is also used in medical industry, especially for cartilages and prosthetics. T-glase, or simply glass is very tough, needs high temperature. It’s used in food containers. Polycarbonate is very durable and resistant, and is used in automobile, space and medical industries, as well as for creating prototype objects. Polyethylene is considered to be one of the strongest filaments, and it is mostly used in food industry.
