The Scoop on ABS and PLA

Most personal 3D printers use PLA or ABS plastic, but how much do you actually know about these materials? Aside from the fact that ABS’s melting temperature is somewhat higher than PLA, and that ABS is somewhat stronger than PLA, most 3D printer owners could be challenged to say more.

t-glase: A Clear Plastic for your 3D Printer

As the market for personal 3D printers expands, so do your options for plastic filaments. Along with the standard ABS and PLA filaments that have been available for many years, we’ve seen a number of fascinating experiments with different filaments, including some involving wood and ceramics. Now Taulman offers another unique filament: t-glase. What makes it unique? It’s incredibly transparent.

Food-grade PP filament for 3D printers

You can now 3D print plates, cups and other food containers as well as children toys using food-grade Polypropylene (PP) filament. Available at German RepRap, the new Polypropylene (PP) filament is semi crystalline thermoplastics and being produced according to US FDA regulations and the relevant EU standards.

3D Printed Beeswax

Together with Joris van Tubergen I developed an open source extruder that can be used on desktop 3D printers. Using this extruder anyone can create temporary disposable objects out of beeswax. The wax needs to be melted at 60 degrees and hardens once is has been 3D printed into an object. In this case the extruder is not only a tool for Joris and myself to complete this project but others can use it as well or build a better version of our extruder. Open Source gives you the ability to share both your designs and the tools that let you make them.
