Introduction

non-metal

In chemistry, a nonmetal (or non-metal) is a chemical element that mostly lacks the characteristics of a metal. Many different non-metal materials can be used for 3D printing, such as ABS plastic, PLA, polyamide (nylon), glass filled polyamide, stereolithography materials (epoxy resins), silver, titanium, steel, wax, photopolymers and polycarbonate. 12.

Most of the thermoplastic 3D printing materials can be used in home 3D printing and professional applications alike. The only difference is that professionals are leaning towards Laser Sintering instead of using the Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF).
