Qwikfab Filaments

PLA

PLA Filaments are the most commonly used material in 3D printing. Preferred to be used in the first stage of prototyping as it is a cost effective material. Several 3D printed iterations can be made using PLA before other moving on to challenging filaments. 

PLA filament emits a pleasant odor while printing. It is strongly suggested that the filament be not used to print objects that would be exposed to hot spotlights or an heated environment, as PLA tends to malform when stored above 60°C.

Use Cases

  • Architecture
  • Figurines
  • Simple mechanical
  • Aesthetic
  • Quick Prototyping

ABS

Though not engineered for 3D Printing, ABS Filaments are widely used in 3D printing when an object requires slight flexibility or is required to be used in elevated temperatures of up to 105°C. ABS filaments are difficult to 3D print without a heated environment. However, once mastered ABS can be used widely for practical applications.  

While printing, ABScan leave a very strong burnt plastic  odor. It is strongly recommended to be printed in a ventilated environment, as the fumes may cause irritability for some people.
