General comparison of all available filament materials?

Recommended Posts

Posted · General comparison of all available filament materials?

Hi folks,

I wonder if there is a decent site or source that shows all the filament materials available on the market.

I see that the number of filaments, manufacturers, shops/distributors is growing and growing what makes is a bit confusing to find materials sorted in terms of theirs specs, sources etc.

Is there any?

I saw the filament comparison on 3der.org what seems only to compare price anf PLA and ABS types.

On the other hand on their newsfeed every few day an artivle about new filament development pops up what shows that the variety of possibilities is expanding quickly.

Everytime if I present a printed part to other people, friend, and customers I am asked about materials for special needs. So I would find is quite interesting to have a good ressource for this.

Maybe I am to tumb to find but I did not so far.

Eventually others have same problem, dunno.

thanks

nudel

I don't know of any where they have done the work for you :) ..... if I see something useful I just buy a sample and try it - if I like it (or can get it to work ....)

What are your customers asking for?

As an example I have been printing e-nable hands - a small part in PLA which tensions the cable just snaps ..... so I got out a sample of the new colorfabb Xt and it is SO strong - I can't break it - but it took a bit of experimenting (240 degrees and no fan - which seems wrong :))

I know the samples/time trying are expensive, but I normally pull them out when I am driven to by my favourite filament not working!

Some good reviews on flexible filaments on here - I love ninjaflex but it is a PITA to print :)
