Filament is essentially the ‘ink’ for a 3D printer. At rigid.ink, we focus on the spools of plastic filament rather than resin. The plastic feeds through the printer, being heated before being extruded from the nozzle. There are many types of filament so you need to determine what filament your printer can use. This depends on the filament diameter your printer uses (1.75mm or 2.85mm), the temperature range your printer can extrude from, if it has a heated bed and what print/finish you’re looking for. We suggest contacting your printer supplier if you’re not sure on this information, but once you have it, the table below will help break these factors down for each material and help you compare all rigid.ink filaments to each other.
