3D Printing Materials | Roundtable Discussion

3D Universe recently teamed up with Ultimaker and Terrafilum Engineered Filaments to host a round table discussion about the numerous 3D printing materials options that are available to makers!

In this session from our virtual conference in April, Jeremy Simon (3D Universe), Matt Griffin (Ultimaker), and Chris Jackson (Terrafilum) share which materials are available for use in 3D printing, how they perform, and what they are commonly used for. Learn about what makes the difference between high-quality materials that yield consistently good results and other lower-quality materials available on the market.

Are you still printing with PLA? Expand your horizons and learn about all of the other exciting material options available for 3D printing! Materials have come a long way in recent years, and even the more advanced materials are a lot easier to print than they used to be.

Learn about the many advanced engineering-grade materials and composite materials available to use for which projects, which materials are recommended for e-NABLE 3D printed hands and arms or PPE for healthcare heroes and much more!
