As 3D Printing evolves, we are treated to more filaments to choose from. Where PLA and ABS tend to be the standard materials for basic 3D Printing, in 2019, new materials are making it possible to 3D Print anything you could want, with varying strength grades for all sorts of projects. Here are some of the newest and strongest materials for the 3D Printing industry in 2019.
Polypropylene for Auto Parts
The automotive industry is a thriving entity. As an increasing number of economies the world over increase, allowing for more of their residents the financial freedom for the luxury of vehicle ownership, the automotive industry is happy to accommodate. The goal over the scope of the industry is to make economical vehicles that meet both safety concerns for their drivers as well as maintain optimal durability. Machined parts of high intensity metals and aluminum have traditionally met this need since the dawn of the automotive era, but today, auto makers are beginning to utilise 3D Printing in their manufacture process.
A new Polypropylene composite filament offers to repair plastic parts on vehicles as a means of replacement without the high manufacture costs. The unique thing about this option is that the vehicle owner may not have to rely on the original manufacturer to replace a part, but given the correct filament and ideal 3D Printer, the vehicle owner, themselves, can print the necessary part via specification from the manufacturer. This option, along with more filaments pertaining to the automotive industry as the technology improves, can prove to be a much more economical solution for buyers and manufacturers as well without the need to house so many replacement parts in various storage areas.
Verbatim Primalloy TPE
3D Printing opens up new worlds and new possibilities for many different industries, but what is best about 3D Printers is that they offer manufacturing options to inventors and entrepreneurs that would otherwise be forced to pay big money to have prototypes manufactured by larger companies. Sending out for prototype manufacture can also open the door up to would be thieves that prey on inventor’s ideas more often than one might think. Countless ideas have been stolen throughout the years as patent laws vary by country of origin and therefore some laxed laws allow for thieves to run rampant. 3D Printing actually eliminates this entity and with new filaments, prototyping is easier than ever before.
A prototype must depict the actual design of the product, but design is not everything. It must also be durable enough to stand up to testing and many filaments do not meet these specifications. Verbatim Primalloy TPE has been developed to alleviate much of the difficulty involved in 3D Print prototyping. The material maintains its strength for more durable 3D Models, but the best thing about Verbatim Primalloy is the fact that it maintains uniformity for a smoother final product. Through a slow extrusion speed, prototypes can be manufactured without the use of outsourcing, with possibly the same professional quality results freeing any inventory to try new things without fear.
Bizard 3D Tech
Wood carving is a true artform. Those that have mastered the craft can make intricate designs from some of the roughest pieces of wood. The art of wood carving may be a difficult one to master, but today, we have an edge up in creating beautiful pieces that mimic natural wood. 3D Printing and filament Bizard 3D Tech make it all happen.
Without a natural piece of wood, it is difficult to produce the nature made lines of a wood, but with Bizard 3D Tech, there is no need for a chisel and steady hand to make a wooden image come to life. The filament maintains 20% wood fiber for a natural look and is also compatible with 3D Printing pens making it quite a versatile material for many products. The final product maintains the look, feel, and yes, even the smell of natural wood due to the 20% wood fiber composition.
3D Printing is always changing and adapting to the needs of the 3D artist. The industry has come a long way in the past 30 years, but as more envelopes are pushed and boundaries are pressed, the imaginative world of 3D Printing is always expanding. If you have yet to discover this impressively creative world, you are missing out, so be sure to get your 3D Printer today along with these amazing filaments to make all your artistic dreams come true in amazing 3D Printed reality.
