Top 10 New 3D Printing Materials You Should Try The 3D printing industry has been growing rapidly in recent years. In addition to the tremendous growth in 3D printing hardware and 3D printing design software, the material used in 3D printing is another sector that is destined to grow exponentially in the coming years. “According to a leading market report publisher MartketsandMarkets, the 3D printing materials segment is going to reach $1.052 billion in global turnover by 2019. It is estimated that the materials market is going to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.4%, given the current 3D printing materials market value is around $400 million.” Indeed, for most 3D printer users, having the freedom and flexibility to choose from a wide range of 3D printing materials that satisfy all kinds of production demands is crucial. At 3DP Unlimited, we strive to provide customers with a truly open source, large format 3D printing platform which welcomes both open source materials and open source software.

Levelling 3D Printer Many people have a problem getting a 3D print to reliably stick to the printer bed. Even if you follow the instructions to level the print bed, the first layer may detach or loosen mid way through a print. Part of the key to success is to set the extruder nozzle the correct distance, which varies depending on the diameter and type of filament and whether your 3D printer has a glass, aluminum, or heated bed. To get consistent results, you need a repeatable method for setting the nozzle height.
