    CA, you always leave out the bit about printing in metal clays, then firing in a reduction furnace. Which we have been doing since 2014 at least.

    Im talking bout those industrial ones. I'll never be able to get my hands on one. I know some of the plastics from 3D printers are really good. When people think "Plastic" they think cheap.

    ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) is the most common 3D printing material used for making durable parts. ABS is strong and ductile material as compared to the other.

    We print in PEEK every day, and can print filaments up to 450C.
