  • These are the FDM Filaments which we use for 3D our prints


    PLA (Polylactide) is a non-toxic, bio-based industrial thermoplastic that is 100% bio-degradable. It 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.

    PLA+ is an augmented version of PLA. PLA+ contains additives and modifiers that make it stronger and tougher, with better layer-to-layer adhesion than conventional PLA.

    Matte PLA
    Matte PLA is different from regular PLA in that it has a non-shiny or matte finish, which can be desirable for certain applications where a glossy finish is not preferred. This type of PLA is also sometimes referred to as "satin PLA."

    Silk PLA
    The surface of the parts printed on PLA Silk Gloss is smooth and silky and allows the objects to be printed in 3D with a high level of gloss. In addition, the material has a high level of light dispersion and reflection. Thanks to this, the layers are disguised until they are almost imperceptible.

    HTPLA prints similar to standard PLA but is "Hella Tough" and can be "Heat Treated" for "Higher Temperature" resistance. This durable PLA has a theoretical Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) of more than 140C (285F) after heat treating though in our experience 120C or more was practically attained.


    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.

    PETG+ has the same stable printability and non-warping characteristics as PETG with the added befit of higher heat resistance and a stronger product.


    TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) is a type of flexible and elastic 3D printing filament. Its rubber-like elasticity, resilience, and durability make it suitable for uses requiring impact-absorption and a soft-touch surface. Examples of TPU 3D printed parts include tubes, seals, bushings and vibration dampeners.
