Over the years, materials compatible with 3D printing technologies have been expanding to enable more applications, especially in industrial sectors that require technical-grade materials. In fact, many studies report that material choice is one of the key drivers of the adoption of additive manufacturing. Historically, the thermoplastic polymer ABS has been one of the most popular 3D printing materials, and was one of the first materials to be used in industrial applications. Indeed, ABS provides high impact resistance, and is also easy to use. On the 26th of May, 3Dnatives will be joined by Kimya and MakerBot to discuss the benefits of using ABS-based filaments during a webinar focused on industrial 3D printing applications.
Kimya is a brand developed by ARMOR that offers innovative 3D materials adapted to the needs of the industry. The brand has developed a range of composite ABS filaments that offer interesting properties for a number of sectors. As a matter of fact, a recent study from IDTechEx predicts that the composite 3D printing market will grow to be worth $1.73 billion in the next ten years – clearly demonstrating the opportunities that lie ahead for this segment of additive manufacturing. Therefore, additionally to discussing the properties and applications of composite ABS filaments, MakerBot will demonstrate what 3D printing parameters you should take into consideration to make successful prints with ABS-based filaments. MakerBot provides 3D printing solutions for professionals that are looking for industrial reliability and precision, notably with its Method X 3D printer.
