Using the right 3D printing filament for a project is crucial for a successful print job. From PLA to water-soluble PVA, Raise3D offers a variety of 3D printing materials that can fulfil a wide range of project requirements. All 3D printing filaments from Raise3D have ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications.
Reliable and versatile rigid filament
ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is a thermoplastic 3D printing filament characterized by its reliability, stiffness, strength, and impact resistance. It also features higher dimensional stability and chemical resistance. These features make it useful for engineering, prototyping, function testing, part assembling and a lot more. ABS 3D printed parts are used in electronics cases, toys, and automotive body parts, just to name a few.
ASA (Acrylic styrene-acrylonitrile) is an opaque thermoplastic 3D printing filament with similar mechanical properties to ABS but superior UV and weather resistance. Therefore, it is commonly used in outdoor applications which can retain their colour and properties.
PETG (Polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified) is an industrial thermoplastic 3D printing filament with excellent chemical resistance. PETG is strong, durable, with good heat resistance, and easy to print. PETG 3D printed parts can be used for prototyping, function-testing, parts assembly and much more.
The recommended 3D printing filament for beginners
PLA (Polylactide) is a non-toxic, bio-based industrial thermoplastic that is 100% bio-degradable. It’s notable for being easy to print with, durable, and relatively strong, making it one of the most user-friendly 3D printing filaments available on the market. And as such, it is the filament most recommended for people who are new to 3D printing. Additionally, this ease-of-use makes it ideal to create 3D printed parts for design, prototyping, and jigs and fixtures. Raise3D’s PLA has a wide range of colour options with excellent surface finishing.
Reliable and durable filament for engineering and end-use
PC (Polycarbonate) is a strong thermoplastic 3D printing filament that characterized by its excellent impact resistance, high stiffness, heat resistance, and flame retardant properties. As a result, PC filament can absorb impact, prevent deformation or cracks, and maintain stability under high temperatures and flames. Due to its 110°C heat resistance, PC performs well in high-temperature environments, such as under the hood of a car.
Raise3D Premium PVA (Polyvinyl alcohol) is a cold water-soluble 3D printing material with strong adhesion when paired with PLA, PETG or ABS, making it an ideal support material for various types of filaments. The PVA supports dissolve when immersed in water leaving behind a smooth interface surface on the 3D printed part.
