Guide to X3D Pro Filaments

Posted by Lucinda Hudson on

Affordability and high quality rarely go together, especially in 3D printer filaments. However, we manage to combine both of these qualities with consistency in our X3D Pro filaments. Our filament brand provides the perfect print every time. Its range consists of various filament types, such as ABS, PLA, HIPS, Nylon, TPU, PETG, ASA, Polycarbonate, Carbon Fiber, PVA, and various specialty blends.

There is a reason why people can’t get enough of X3D Pro filaments and we’re not just exaggerating. You can find plenty of 5-star reviews online and on social media about the affordability and high-quality of our filaments. Here are just some projects that our customers have been using our filaments for:

Want to start using it for your next 3D printing projects? Here are the different types of X3D Pro filaments you can play with.

X3D Pro Filament Types & Uses

X3D Pro PLA

Our PLA filament is the most popular out of all our filaments due to its versatility, easy printability, and improved mechanical strength compared to other PLA filaments. It is also known for being environmentally friendly and odorless as it’s made from biodegradable corn starch.

The X3D Pro PLA filament comes in a wide range of colours to suit your 3D printing needs. It is also blended with various materials to create specialty filaments which we’ll discuss below.

What is it perfect for? It is ideal for creating anything that doesn’t require strength, flexibility, heat resistance, or durability.

X3D Pro ABS

ABS filaments may be hard to wield but you don’t have to worry about that with the X3D Pro ABS. Our ABS delivers smooth and strong prints consistently with vibrant colours. You can choose from 16 colour options! What’s best is that it has been formulated without harmful additives, making it RoHS compliant.

What is it perfect for? It would make durable tools, automotive and mechanical parts, electrical enclosures, and basically anything that will deal with constant heat, impact, and usage.

X3D Pro Carbon Fibre

The X3D Pro Carbon Fibre boasts of strength, rigidity, no-fail layer adhesion, and minimal warping, thanks to its carbon fibers. It complies with RoHS and quality standards.

What are they perfect for? You can use our X3D Pro Carbon Fiber for lightweight props, decors, functional prototypes, and remote-controlled toys.

X3D Pro Dissolvables (HIPS and PVA)

Support structures require materials that are easy to remove without leaving marks on the 3D prints. Our X3D Pro HIPS and PVA do just that with added benefits. Our HIPS filament work best for ABS. ABS is notoriously difficult to print with and remove support structures from but with X3D Pro HIPS, support removal is a breeze with the help of limonene.

On the other hand, X3D Pro PVA is suited for PLA support material. It is dissolvable by water. Unlike other PVA brands, our PVA filament is more rigid, which makes it great for tall 3D prints.

What are they perfect for? The X3D Pro HIPS and PVA serve as great support materials for ABS and PLA respectively.

X3D Pro Nylon

The nylon filament is strong and durable, making it the perfect replacement for the brittle PLA and flimsy ABS. It can also create flexible 3D prints when used thinly, making it great for functional parts. The X3D Pro Nylon filament complies with RoHS standards. It also has been tested for quality. We are so sure that you’ll like it that we offer a Return or Refund Guarantee if you’re not satisfied.

What is it perfect for? Our X3D Pro Nylon filament works best with industrial and performance- engineering applications.

X3D Pro TPU

TPU filaments create flexible 3D prints that retain its original form despite twisting and bending. Our X3D Pro TPU is flexible but strong and durable. Like our other filaments, it complies with RoHS and quality standards. We also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee on these filaments.

What is it perfect for? TPU is great for stress toys, cellphone cases, remote-controlled car parts, casings, rubber mats, and anything that offers shock absorption or vibration dampening.

X3D Pro PETG

You expect excellent mechanical strength and easy printability with our X3D Pro PETG. It is a dream to print with, having little to no odour and minimal warping and shrinkage. Layer adhesion is also a strong point with our PETG. As always, it is RoHS-compliant and passes quality testing.

What is it perfect for? Since it was derived from PET, one of the most commonly used plastics in the world, PETG can create most plastic materials, such as plastic bottles, food containers, planter pots, mechanical parts, and 3D printer parts, among others.

Order here: X3D Pro PETG 1.75mm

X3D Pro ASA

You’ll expect nothing less from our X3D Pro ASA filament. ASA is known for its strength and weather resistance. With X3D’s version, it is also formulated to be easy to print with and UV resistant with zero-warping properties.

What is it perfect for? With its high weather and heat resistance, X3D Pro ASA is perfect for outdoor decorations and objects such as garden pots, birdhouses, garden gnomes and more. It can also be used for automotive parts.

Order here: X3D Pro ASA 1.75mm

X3D Pro Polycarbonate

If you want a stronger thermoplastic than PLA or ABS, check out X3D Pro Polycarbonate. Aside from having excellent mechanical strength, it is temperature resistant, partially flexible, transparent, and impact resistant.

What is it perfect for? It creates prototypes, eyewear, remote-controlled cars, drones, machinery guards, and anything exposed to high heat and stress.

Order here: X3D Pro Polycarbonate 1.75mm and 3.00mm

X3D Pro Specialty Filaments (Smooth, Twinkling, Marble, Glow in the Dark, Translucent, and Wood)

Our X3D Pro Specialty Filaments all have a PLA base, meaning that they are all biodegradable while also reinforced by the addition of the specialty components. Just like other X3D Pro filaments, they pass RoHS and quality standards.

What are they perfect for? They are best for toys, decors, and figurines.
