Difference in Active and Passive Cooling When 3D Printing Plastic Objects

Difference in Active and Passive Cooling When 3D Printing Plastic Objects

Both active and passive cooling methods are widely utilized for 3D printing plastic-based products. However, comparisons between the two suggest that active cooling will most likely lead to more accurate and precise creation of objects. Two plastic filaments, ABS and PLA, are most often used to 3D print rapid prototypes. These filaments are often the […]

3D Printlife to Feature ENVIRO ABS Filament with XYZprinting 3D Printers

There are a number of benefits that come with printing with ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) material. For instance, it generally comes with good abrasion and heat resistance, and also enables a number of finishing processes that wouldn’t quite work as well with other types of thermoplastic. But, there are also some glaring issues when it […]
