3D printer filaments are building blocks in the 3D printing world. A 3D printer takes a spool of filament, heats it up, and extrudes it out, layer by layer, into the shape of the object you want to create. Because of this, your choice of filament affects the structural properties and integrity of the object you print. You will find many filament material options: PLA, nylon, and ABS plastics are the most common. The product you intend to print and the capabilities of your printer help dictate the best filament. ABS and nylon filaments are common when flexibility or strength are required in the final results.
