Polypropylene is an interesting material because of it’s light weight yet strong parts that are both chemically resistant and an excellent candidate for printing living hinges. One great feature of PP is that hardly anything sticks to it – helping it stay clean but also making it rather difficult to print with. SmartMaterials has you covered on that front with their SmartStick, a bed adhesion solution specifically made for this filament.
PERFECT FOR PROTOTYPING POLYPROPYLENE PRODUCTS
As the amount of materials available for 3D printing continues to widen, more and more opportunities there are to prototype and refine your models with the same material the finished product will be made from. PP is a popular injection molding and mass manufacturing material for all of the reasons described above but previously models had to be tested using other materials which were not perfect examples of what was being designed. Now with filament like this, you can design and test products at your desk in the same material the final product will be mass manufactured with.
