Materials    

 

We offer a wide range of material options including but not limited to:

  1. PLA - Lightweight, inexpensive and good for small detailed parts, and available in a wide variety of colours.

  2. Wood Infused PLA - Wood particles are embedded into the material which provides some of the properties of real wood. 

  3. PETG - A more durable material and great alternative to ABS. Easier, more reliable to print with and similar or better mechanical properties

  4. ASA - Excellent for outdoor applications which require UV resistance. 

  5. Ninjaflex - Polyurethane that is soft, flexible, durable and temperature resistant.

  6. Semiflex - Similar to Ninjaflex with less overall flex

  7. We are also able to print in Polycarbonates, Nylon, NVent, NGen and the list goes on...
