The last few years have been great for 3D printing and that goes for the development of different materials to be used with them as well. We’ve seen and tried a lot of new and different experimental materials ourselves and have covered many of them here as well. With filaments designed for 3D printing there are different strengths and weaknesses, so choosing the right one for the job can be a bit of a challenge. Now there is one more useful resource that you can check out regarding different popular materials along with useful and interesting information about each of them thanks to Simplify3D. Their 3D Printing Materials Guide explores all of the popular filaments in use today, providing expert tips to improve your 3D printing results with each material covered. The guide includes in-depth articles for more than a dozen different filament types, along with a detailed Properties Table for comparing the physical and mechanical properties of one material against another.

Along with the Ultimate 3D Printing Materials Guide, there is also a robust Filament Properties Table that compiles 25 different properties and characteristics for each material. The Table includes detailed metrics such as strength, stiffness, density, and other mechanical properties that could be useful when designing your next part. A built-in comparison tool can be used to select specific materials for side-by-side comparison. Having all of this information in one place greatly simplifies the challenge of selecting the best material for a specific application.
