Matterlab develops hemp and tagua-based FDM 3D printer filaments
While there are a large number of FDM 3D printer filaments available on the current market, many of us choose to primarily rely on PLA filament for its biodegradable properties. While it also doesn’t suffer from the warping issues common in its main competitor ABS, the idea that all those failed prints don’t end up in some eternal pile of rubbish is quite comforting.
If you recognise yourself in that, then here’s some good news (though ABS fans might like to hear this as well): two new filaments could become available in the very near future. Both of them, furthermore, are completely biodegradable and natural products: Hemp and Tagua filaments.
