3D printing material learning and exploring

3D printing material sites and learning about the material
The most important parts of 3D printing materials using the right kind of material.
Strength – How strongly does your printed part have to be?
Flexibility – How flexible does your part need to be?
Accuracy – How important is precision to your 3D part?
Different conditions – Any other conditions that apply to your 3D model
The materials used to print 3D objects – Many different materials can be used for 3D printing, such as ABS plastic, PLA, polyamide (nylon), glass filled polyamide, stereolithography materials (epoxy resins), silver, titanium, steel, wax, photopolymers, and polycarbonate. Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) Filament has become one of the most common materials for 3D printing because it is easy to print, biodegradable and bioderived from corn and other biomaterials.
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) Filament is another common 3D printing filament.
Regular PLA and ABS filament for 3D printing costs around $25 per kilogram on average. Specialty filaments can cost as much as four times this amount.
