Polycarbonate (PC) is a high strength material intended for tough environments and engineering applications. It has extremely high heat deflection, and impact resistance and optical clarity. Polycarbonate also has a high glass transition temperature of 150° Celsius. This means it will maintain its structural integrity up to that temperature, making it suitable for use in high-temperature applications. It can also be bent without breaking and is often used in applications where some minor flexibility is required.
Flashforge Metal filled filaments contain very fine metal powder such as Copper, Bronze, Brass, and Stainless Steel. The presence of this metal powder makes the filament much heavier than standard plastics. This means that the parts printed with metal-filled PLA will weigh significantly more than ones from the standard PLA, despite using the same settings and consuming the same amount of material. Metal filled filaments also tend to be very abrasive as they are extruded through the hotend.
Flexible filaments are made of Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE) which are a blend of hard plastic and rubber. As the name suggests, this material is elastic in nature allowing the plastic to be stretched and flexed easily. This filament is good for printing rubber-like parts that can bend or flex. It is compatible with almost all desktop 3D printers. These materials are used in many industries from automotive instrument panels, caster wheels, power tools, sporting goods, medical devices, drive belts, footwear, inflatable rafts, and a variety of extruded forms like door trim or as a filament.

Flashforge HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) is a dissolvable filament that is frequently used as support material. It acts as a great support material because it can be easily removed with Limonene solution, leaving the clean high-quality print that you want behind. HIPS requires no scraping, cutting, or any other method of removal that may cause damage to your prints.
This is a fantastic alternative to sending away regular support material which can make your hands sore and leave you feeling frustrated.
PETG, a glycol-modified version of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), is used to manufacture water bottles. It is a semi-rigid material with good impact resistance, but has a slightly softer surface, making it more prone to wear. The material also benefits from strong thermal characteristics, allowing the plastic to cool efficiently with almost negligible warpage.
PETG allows you to produce higher quality parts that can be used straight out of your printer! With a glass temperature of 80 degrees, this is a filament that will withstand some seriously hot environments. PETG is preferred over ABS and over PLA for print speed, strength, toughness and resistance to shrinking.
Wood-based filaments are typically a composite that combines a PLA base material with wood dust, cork, and other powdered wood derivatives. The presence of these particles gives the 3D printed parts the aesthetics of real wood. This filament is also less abrasive compared to other composite filaments such as carbon-fiber filled and metal filled, since wood particles are much softer.
Polylactic Acid, commonly known as PLA, is one of the most popular materials used in desktop 3D printing. It is the default filament of choice for most extrusion-based 3D printers because it can be printed at a low temperature and does not require a heated bed. PLA is a great first material to use as you are learning about 3D printing because it is easy to print, very inexpensive, and creates parts that can be used for a wide variety of applications. It is also one of the most environmentally friendly filaments on the market today. Derived from crops such as corn and sugarcane, PLA is renewable and most importantly biodegradable. As a bonus, this also allows the plastic to give off a sweet aroma during printing.
ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) has a long history in the 3D printing world. This material was one of the first plastics to be used with industrial 3D printers. Many years later, ABS is still a very popular material thanks to its low cost and good mechanical properties. ABS is known for its toughness and impact resistance, allowing you to print durable parts that will hold up to extra usage and wear.
ABS also has a higher glass transition temperature, which means the material can withstand much higher temperatures before it begins to deform. This makes ABS a great choice for outdoor or high-temperature applications.
Nylon is an incredibly strong, durable, and versatile 3D printing material making it perfect for intense and specific engineering projects. Flexible when thin, but with very high inter-layer adhesion, nylon lends itself well to things like living hinges and other functional parts. PA nylon has incredibly strong inter-layer adhesion, ensuring that your prints come out without cracks and splits, while still being very flexible when printed with thin walls.
Nylons are classified in the family of polyamides, which is a polymer consisting of amides joined together by peptide bonds. For Fused Deposition Modeling, FDM, Nylon filament is a great material to use for 3D printing. The strength of the Nylon filament is remarkable, especially when using a higher fill setting.
PVA filament as made by Flashforge is a water soluble, making it absolutely invaluable as a support structure for 3D printers that work with multiple materials. Dissolvable supports are best suited to print models with improved underside quality or complex geometries with support structures that would be difficult to remove by hand. Simply use this filament as the support material when printing an incredibly complicated 3D object, then place the object in water for 24 hours while occasionally agitating it to have the support structures simply melt away.
