Selecting a 3D printing material to replace a traditional plastic, like nylon or silicone, isn't always that easy or straightforward. You must think critically about the purpose of the part you want to print and its high priority material requirements.

In this webinar, we’ll walk through five high priority material properties, and give you our recommendations on popular 3D printing materials to use based on your desired material or application. 

This is for you if...

  • Used to working with ABS, PP, PC, PS, Nylon, Acetal, Ultem, or silicone etc.
  • Evaluating material properties like compliance, toughness, or heat deflection temperature.
  • Interested in one of the easiest and highest-quality ways to get metal parts from a polymer 3D printer.
  • Interested in printing end use consumer products, vacuum forming, or manufacturing jigs.
