Is there a difference between natural and black?

We are often asked whether there is a difference between natural and black colors in 3d printing and the use of printed parts. When it comes to filaments, there is a difference. Yes, provided that the inks are selected for the chosen polymer, and the ink manufacturer fights for quality and does not save on […]

Nylon for 3D printing

Nylon is a versatile group of polyamide-based thermoplastic polymers that were initially created to replace silk. Under the name “Nylon,” you can find different filaments that differ slightly in composition and have other properties. Nylon filaments demonstrate great versatility and characteristics, allowing you to create solid and flexible objects with a beautiful silky surface. This […]

Fillers for 3D printing filaments and their properties

For many engineering applications, polymers are often modified by adding various additives. Filaments can also be filled with different fillers and modified with additives to make them more suitable for complex applications where the properties of a standard polymer are not quite suitable. Let’s look at what additives and additives exist and how they affect […]
