weights of the plastics

Recommended Posts

I read that Bronzefill is 3X heavier than normal PLAs at 3.9gm/cm3. Does anyone know the weights of PLA, ABS and Taulman Nylons? I am trying to get a lighter weight for a particular model and wondering what is out there that would give a lighter weight than PLA?

    • 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.
