General purpose materials
Outstanding performance and surface quality
PLA (Polylactic Acid) is a biodegradable, sustainable and food safe polymer made from organic sources.
It is the most common used filament in FFF 3D printers for its ease of use and wide range of applications, specially those not mechanically or thermally demanding. Definitely a good starting point to learn about the 3D Printing manufacturing process.Read more
Functional prototyping and end-use parts
NYLON / PET-G / ABS
PET-G (Polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified) is a globally used co-polyester, from plastic water bottles to cloth fibers and it is 100% recyclable.
As a technical material, PET-G provides good mechanical properties and improved chemical and thermal behaviours than PLA but with similar ease of use.Read more
ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) is one of the most common technical materials in several industries around the globe. Its great mechanical and thermal behaviour make ABS the ideal polymer for countless applications.
Traditionally a challenging material to print with FFF printers, it has been re-formulated to ensure good interlayer adhesion and to reduce warping.Read more
Nylon (polyamide) is an extensively used material for its unique mechanical and chemical properties. Thanks to characteristics like durability, flexibility and resistance to corrosion, Nylon is ideal for multiple applications in the 3D printing field, like end-use parts or custom jigs and fixtures.

Parts that need to be bent and compressed
TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) is a versatile rubber-like flexible material. With Shore-A hardness of 95, TPU is a resistant material for several industrial applications, both mechanical or chemical. Moreover, it’s been especially designed to improve the 3D printing experience.Read more
Soluble support materials for multi-extrusion 3D printing
PVA (Polyvinyl alcohol) is a water soluble polymer, ideal to to work as support material for multi-material 3D Printing. Optimized for the FFF manufacturing process, our PVA works seamlessly with PLA, TPU, PET-G and Nylon, becoming a reliable universal support material to print complex geometries, large overhangs or intricate cavities.
PVA supports allow to achieve better surface quality, to orientate the part to get better mechanical properties and even to print multi-component models and mechanisms.Read more
Aesthetic and attractive finish
WOOD-FILLED / METAL-FILLED / FIBER-ADDED
If you’re looking for something special in your filament portfolio then consider the wood-filled filaments to achieve an aesthetic and attractive finish. About 70% PLA and 30% recycled wood fibers. Your prints will look absolutely amazing and your 3D printer cave will smell like a woodshop!Read more
If you’re looking for something special in your filament portfolio then consider the metal-filled filaments to achieve an aesthetic and attractive finish. With a bit of sanding and polishing the particles will start to shine. The weight of the material is something special, about 3 times heavier than regular PLA.Read more
