Support Filament

Support

Support material is a class of materials dedicated to serving as easy to remove support. Supports are required on a lot of complex parts, and depending on the geometry they may be difficult to remove. Support material is designed to be easy to remove, and this is often achieved in two different ways. Some support materials are made of PVA, which is often seen in glue. PVA support materials are water soluble, so PVA supports are removed by submerging a part in water. Other support materials are designed to bond with a specific filament. This helps the support material bond to the part, but also remain easy to remove. If you have a complex part that needs intricate support, consider using a dedicated support material in a dual extrusion setup.

Support material has primarily one application, acting as support! The unique properties of PVA support makes it useful beyond just being support. Sometimes, a part may need to dissolve upon contact with water. PVA support is able to meet this unique application.

Specialty Filament

Specialty

Specialty materials are unique materials created for specific use cases. Sometimes, common materials like PLA or ABS cannot meet the demands of a specific application and a dedicated material is needed. Specialty materials have been created for casting, smooth surface finishes, flexible parts, high clarity, and support material. Due to the wide range of different applications, specialty materials are not easily classified into other common material categories. The chemical makeup of specialty materials is diverse as well, making each specialty material truly special. If you have a very specific demand for a material, there may be a specialty material to help you out!

Applications for specialty materials are almost entirely driven on the material’s design. Unlike common materials, specialty materials are often created for a specific application. Some of the most common specialty material use cases are given, but specialty materials exist for a wide variety of different applications.

rPC Flake

rPC

Polycarbonate (PC) is a high performance material intended for use in engineering and industrial settings. As suggested by its name, PC contains carbonate groups that contribute significantly to its strength and toughness. PC also has excellent temperature resistance, making it useful in high temperature applications as well. Recycled polycarbonate (rPC) comes from regrinding a source of polycarbonate, like failed prints. If you are looking for a strong, industrial material that is also sustainable, rPC is an excellent choice.
 
rPC’s high performing properties make it a good choice for industrial applications. Parts made from rPC can withstand the demanding environment found in industry. rPC is also perfect for any parts that need to resist high temperatures. rPC is an eco-friendly solution for industrial material when used in pellet printers like Gigabot X since it reuses PC that would typically be discarded.

rPLA Flake

rPLA

Polylactic Acid, more commonly known as PLA, is one of the most frequently used materials in 3D printing. Its popularity comes from its ease of use, organic nature, and relatively strong mechanical properties. PLA is also inexpensive making it a great entry-level material. PLA also boasts strong mechanical properties and user-friendly thermal properties that make it easy to print with. Its prevalence and ease of use makes it a perfect material to regrind and recycle. For those who prototype often, rPLA is a sustainable solution.
rPLA is a great material for applications that require rapid prototyping and strong parts. Its ease of use and low cost make it suitable when a part may be frequently reprinted as is the case in prototyping and architecture. rPLA is easily recycled, proving to be a sustainable solution for rapid prototyping. Its strength and ease of use make it suitable for those who need to turn over a lot of strong, functional prototypes.

rPET Pellets

rPET

Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is a durable material with either a glossy appearance or opaque appearance depending on its crystallinity. PET is one of the most common plastics in the world, used in cases like sailcloth, water bottles, and clothes. In the world of 3D printing, PET is often used in the form of PETG which contains glycol. PET and PETG fill a role between PLA and ABS being a tough material and relatively easy to work with. With the rise of pellet printing, PET is growing in relevance as a 3D printing material. PET is also one of the most commonly recycled plastics, making its potential use in 3D printing even more attractive. For those looking for durable parts and a closed loop 3D printing solution, PET is a great material to use.

PET excels when you take advantage of its material properties and its prevalence. Its material properties allow it to perform well in a variety of applications. Its prevalence also makes it a great candidate for recycling and closed loop use cases.

Polycarbonate (PC) is a high performance material intended for use in engineering and industrial settings. As suggested by its name, PC contains carbonate groups that contribute significantly to its strength and toughness. PC also has excellent temperature resistance, making it useful in high temperature applications as well. Its strength, toughness, and temperature resistance makes it a useful material for final production or industrial parts. PC is also useful with electronics since it is an insulator.

PC’s high performing properties make it a good choice for industrial applications. Parts made from PC can withstand the demanding environment found in industry. PC is also a good choice for storage, especially electronic enclosures. Since PC does not conduct electricity, sensitive electronics will remain safe in PC enclosures. Many of the parts on re:3D Gigabot printers is made with PC. Finally, PC is perfect for any parts that needs to resist high temperatures.
