3D printing filament is the thermoplastic feedstock for fused deposition modeling 3D printers. This filament is fed into a heating chamber in the printer's extruder assembly for printing layer by layer 3D object. Various plastics, metal and ceramic based filament have been widely adopted in 3D printing technology. Filament is commonly available in the two standard diameters of 1.75 mm and 3 mm. 3D printing filament is created using a process of heating, extruding and cooling plastic to transform nurdles into the finished product. These filaments are used in FDM/FFF technology.
3D printing filament can be categories based on material into, plastics, metal and ceramic. There are various 3D printing filament fall under the umbrella of plastics included photopolymer, polyamide, ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), and PLA (polylactic acid).Also, the others plastics material can be included in 3D printing application such as, PVA (polyvinyl alcohol), PC (polycarbonate), HDPE (high-density polyethylene), HIPS (high-impact polystyrene), and PEEK (polyetheretherketone).The metal based filaments material can be sub classified as titanium, aluminum, stainless steel, nickel, and others (copper, gold, silver, bronze, and cobalt chrome).By ceramic materials it is sub classified as glass, fused silica, quartz, others.
These 3D printing filament are widely adopted in end use industry applications included healthcare, aerospace & defense, automotive, electrical & electronics. ABS is used for a wide range of functional parts in automotive industry. ABS filaments is highly versatile, being particularly strong, durable, and suitable for post-processing techniques, such as sanding or gluing. PLA filament is a biodegradable material created from renewable sources and incorporated in medical applications, to create sutures and surgical parts that simply degrade into harmless lactic acid once the patient heals. Photopolymers are thermoset filament, or polymers, that change properties when exposed to ultraviolet light. These filament can be clear or opaque, flexible and rigid. Polyamide is also nylon plastic widely used for finishing in 3D printing module. These plastic filament widely used in medical field for the creation of surgical implants. In electronics industry, it is used to design and manufacturing of complex shapes and components.
The high-density product with complex geometries of automotive engine parts and components can manufactures with powder form of plastics. It also found application in the medical & dental end-use industry to manufacture orthopedic and dental implants as well as artificial knee and hip replacements. The 3D printing plastics filament employed is also used in aerospace & defense industry.
