weights of the plastics

Recommended Posts

Posted · weights of the plastics

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?
