Glass Fiber Reinforced Filaments
If 2019 was the year of carbon fiber reinforced 3D printing materials, we suspect next year, 2020, will focus on the expanding use of glass fiber reinforced materials. Where carbon fiber provides greater stiffness and strength to weight ratio, Fiberglass not only adds stiffness, but may also increase the thermal properties (heat resistance). Fusion3 is excited to have certified five different glass fiber reinforced versions of Nylon and PETG.
Additional Engineering-Grade Plastics
Our customers often bring new filament manufacturers to our attention and request that we certify their favorite materials. This is one of the many features our our industry leading technical support. Here’s 5 different PLA formulations that we’ve recently certified for our users:
