Exploring 3D Printed Thermoplastic Materials from Standard to Filled to Continuous Fiber
With the various 3D printing technologies and materials available today, it can be difficult to navigate and understand all the options. Extrusion-based thermoplastic printing is the most common type of 3D printing, but composite 3D printing with filled thermoplastics or continuous fiber reinforcement can open up new doors in manufacturing and tooling applications.
Watch this webinar on composite 3D printing to understand:
• Standard thermoplastic printing vs. fiber-filled and continuous fiber 3D printing
• Common additive filling options to thermoplastic resins to enhance functionality
• How to select the right material based on the part properties required, whether it’s surface finish, strength, stiffness, chemical or thermal resistance
