PLA and ABS are the most widely used FDM 3d printing materials in the World. Designers and hobbyists are all interested in knowing which material is better than the other. Which material do you think is better among the two? The answer of course is not so black and white. It depends on the application. We’ll cover all the differentiating aspects of ABS vs PLA in great detail throughout this article.
Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) or Fused Filament Fabrication (FFM), is a 3d printing process that produces durable objects out of the same plastic that we see in everyday products. Furthermore, FDM processes industrial-grade thermoplastic materials. That’s what makes resulting parts so tough and durable when properly processed. FDM 3d printing is the most cost-effective way of producing thermoplastic parts and prototypes.
