Micron3DP Unveils Breakthrough Glass 3D Printing Technique

Over the last couple of years we have seen 3D printing progress at an incredibly rapid rate. One of the areas which excites us the most is the 3D printing material’s space where new materials are being utilized as a print medium nearly every week.

What started out as ABS and PLA, a few different types of metal powders, and ordinary photosensitive resin, has quickly grown to include hundreds of new, interesting, innovative materials.From wood and metal composites, gl8to clay, food, and everything in between, new materials are what will drive 3D printing towards mainstream adoption.

When printing with a typical FDM/FFF 3D printer, one is typically limited to a range of materials based on the heat that the hotend can put off. While PLA is the easiest material to print with because of its low melting point, as the heating capabilities of a hotend progress, other materials such as ABS, nylon, polycarbonate, PEEK and more are all possible. Most printers’ extruders are limited to achieving a temperature anywhere from 180-325°C. When additional heat capabilities are available, additional materials will be compatible with that given printer.
