Extremely interesting and totally useful, many thanks!!! Do I interpret the graphs correctly to conclude that transparent polycarbonate (UM filament) beats Tough PLA in terms of both strength and Young's modulus? However, it is surprising that the graphs shows "generic PLA" to be stronger than Tough PLA.
just watched this video about the use of infill on stress locations for reinforcing strength , very interesting!
"Strong" or "tough" is a broad field... Can you explain the requirements or the use case a bit more detailed?
Are you asking for
- bending stiffness / flexing resistance / rigidity
- impact resistance
- abrasion resistance
- chemical resistance
- temperature resistance
- tensile strength / compression strength
@gr5 did a lot of research and made an interactive sheet to compare printing materials: http://gr5.org/mat/
