Nylon, or polyamide, is just one of the many materials that is compatible with 3D printers. Nylon is a type of plastic that is strong and very flexible. It has a minimum wall thickness of one millimeter. This plastic is naturally white, but you can get it in some colors. With this flexible material it is possible to make moving parts from it, such as a chain.
ABS plastic has a strength similar to a Lego. The plastic is made from spaghetti-like filament. It comes in many color options. There are about three layers per every millimeter. The material has a minimum wall thickness of one millimeter.
Resin is a more rigid and delicate 3D printing material. It is a liquid photopolymer cured with UV light. Resin is typically either white, black, or transparent. There are about ten layers per every millimeter. Resin has a minimum wall thickness of one millimeter.
Stainless steel is one of the strongest 3D printing materials. The material is made with multiple steps or directly from powder. It offers coloring options like gold and bronze plating. There are about six layers per every millimeter. This material has a minimum wall thickness of three millimeters.
Gold and silver are fairly strong printing materials. They are made from wax and then casted. There are as many as ten layers per every one millimeter. The minimum wall thickness is 0.5 millimeters.
Titanium is the strongest material used in 3D printing. It is made from direct metal laser sintering. There are about thirty layers per one millimeter. Titanium has a minimum wall thickness of 0.2 millimeters.
Ceramic is a rigid and delicate material that is used for 3D printing. The first ceramic is printed and then the surface is glazed. Ceramics are white, and their glaze is also typically white. There are about six layers per every one millimeter. The minimum wall thickness is around three millimeters.
Gypsum is also a material that is commonly used for 3D printing. Gypsum can also be called sandstone, rainbow ceramics, and multicolor. Gypsum is rather rigid and delicate; this is probably due to the fact that the material is made from powder. The material is naturally white, but you can get it with colors. There are about ten layers per every one millimeter, and it has a minimum wall thickness of two millimeters.
