Current recommendations for ASA and PETG

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone.  I have a couple of things coming up, one for an item that has to live outdoors, so getting wet and UV will be regular things but strength requirements would be average.  The other something that needs to be strong but doesn't need super fine detail.


I've avoided ABS up till now and would prefer to stay away from it if I can.  Will ASA do what I need for the outdoor piece?  IF so, what experiences have folks had with ApolloX?

PETG wise, how has it gone with HDGlass?


I'm also toying with trying one or both of these prints with some Nylforce CF, but I think the nylon is not going to like the wet.  Am I off base on that?


Thanks in advance?

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
