It lends itself to post-processing like sanding and drilling. It is cheap. In a lot of ways, it’s an ideal engineering plastic for 3D printing. But it also has its failings.

New Fans at the Store!

The savings continue to breeze in, with more fans now available for purchase in the M3D Parts store.
