  • in violation of NDSU policies.
  • prohibited by local, state or federal law.
  • unsafe, harmful, dangerous or poses an immediate threat to the well-being of others. (Such use may violate the terms of use of the manufacturer.)

Filaments

We are currently carrying PLA and nGen materials, as well as some Pro-PLA.

  • Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a plant-based bioplastic derived from corn (US) or sugarcane (rest of world). PLA is a very stiff but brittle plastic and does not withstand high temperatures or long-term humidity. PLA is compostable on the industrial scale and is currently being used for every-day products such as sports areana beverage cups, yogurt cups, as well as some baby products.
    • Technical data can be found here: Link
  • nGen is a co-polyester made from Eastman Amphora AM3300 polymer. nGen has a high temperature tolerance and is durable.
    • Technical data can be found here: Link
  • Pro-PLA is an advanced form of PLA which provides higher impact strength over ABS, as well as rivalling ABS's heat resistance. Pro-PLA can be post-annealed which will give it it's higher heat resistance.
