While the term “3D Printing” has become synonymous with creating physical objects, the underlying method of manufacture—additive manufacturing—is a diverse and complex concept spanning multiple materials and design constraints.
From ABS to SLS, there are a number of different pros and cons when picking the best methods or materials to get the job done.
Simplify3D has included the projected price, density, temperature, and a whole sleuth of properties for ABS, carbon fiber, and other materials in their new Ultimate 3D Printing Materials Guide and Filament Properties Table.
While the Materials Guide shows an in-depth look at the materials themselves, the Filament Properties Table pits materials against each other for quick comparisons.
