3D Printer Filament

In this section, we cover the details of 3D printing filament to help you determine which filament type is the best fit for your 3D printing needs, as well as how to print it effectively and which brands we recommend.

On the filament types page, you’ll gain an understanding of the different filament types available to you, with the typical use cases for each one and our judgement of how hard that filament type is to 3D print. We also have detail pages for each common filament type, such as PLA and ABS, which contain additional information about the strengths and weaknesses of the filament, recommended slicer settings to print it successfully, and our recommended brands.
