    Hey, there are many materials you can use in 3d printing, depending on the printer and it’s capabilities. Most standard FFF printers can use a variety of plastics, depending on the purpose. PLA is the most popular material, thanks to its combination of high quality and accuracy and reasonable strength. ABS and Polycarbonate sacrifice detailed accuracy for supreme strength. And if you’re printer and your pocket can handle it, you can try composite filaments, such as Carbon fiber reinforced nylon
