We are still in the process of testing various materials for printing with the GBX. At re:3D, we commonly print with:
- rPET (Innofil pellets)
- rPETG pellets
- PET (Polyquest pellets)
- PLA (re:3D ground flake)
- Polycarbonate (re:3D ground flake)
For updates on the full range of materials we’re testing, see our forum topic HERE (INSERT LINK).
General rules for choosing materials:
- Particles are ideally between 1 to 5mm in length.
- While flake and irregularly-shaped particles are often printable, materials with more uniform and more spherical particles are typically easier to print.
- Material must not be malleable at room temperature.
- Plastic is recommended (either pellets or recycled ground up flake). Plastic filled with other materials (carbon fiber, wood, copper, fiberglass, basalt) may also be printable.
