Sharebot offers its customers a wide choice of different 3D printing materials.
PLA-S and ABS-HF are two products developed by Sharebot R&D department in partnership with an Italian chemical company. The aim is to offer a high performance and great quality filament, tested to work perfectly with all Sharebot 3D printers.
TPU is an elastic and stress resistant material. It is capable of returning to its original shape even after it has been manipulated or stretched.
All these materials are available in a wide range of different colors.
PLA’s the most used 3D printing material, composed by a thermoplastic polymer derivated from corn and it’s biodegradable. PLA’s resistant and solid (avoiding the warping effect during the printing process) without retraction and deformation. Available in a lot of different colors, it doesn’t release any smell and it can be extruded at lower temperatures than any other material without having to heat the printing bed.

The ABS is a thermoplastic polymer which derives from the oil and it’s used to produce lightweight and resistant objects like LEGO bricks. It’s a rather soft material and it can be easily warped. During the printing process ABS requires an higher extrusion temperature than PLA. Printing bed has to be heated in order to reduce deformations and retractions which can be also avoided with a good drawing.
It is an elastic polymeric material that could be stretched and forced without damaging it: TPU will always come back to its original form. The filament is available in a lot of different colors and during the printing process it doesn’t give off any smell. You can find on our website a tutorial in order to learn how to print it.
Nylon-Carbon is a high quality material. It’s composed by 2 different fibres: nylon and carbon. Nylon gives to the filament a high resistance while carbon gives lightness making it very easy to print. The printed object are resistant, with opaque black color, slightly rough and with a light metallic look; the material can be worked in a easy way after the end of the printing process. Nylon-Carbon is ideal for manufacturing use. It doesn’t require any particular fastener: you’ll just need usual hairspray.

3DPaper is a 3D printing filament composed by cellulose fibers which was by obtained recycled paper. The material is water-soluble, eco-friendly, biodegradable and recyclable; it can be easly modified after the printing process if it is submerged, modelled with felt cutters or polished with denatured ethylic alchool. 3DPaper can be waterproofed using polyurethanic paints and it has great flexibility after being printed, becoming more strong if baked in a hoven at 150°-160°C for 30′ or 120′. Printing tip: the extrusion temperature is 180° with cold plate without applying any fixture at 200% printing speed.
Sharebot WOOD 3D printing filament is a mixture of modified PLA charged with true micronized wood powder. WOOD is printed at low temperatures (extrusion temperature at 210°, plate temperature at 40°) and it can be easily carved with sand papers or tumbling machines after the printing process. Its porous texture allows to print it without using any primer so that the print can adhere on it. Object made with wood have smooth surfaces.
