Filament is the material with which 3D printers print, the way copiers and printers use toner and ink. Our printers use plastic filament. The two basic types are ABS and PLA.
ABS filament is petroleum based and melts at a higher temperatures (around 230 degrees C).
PLA filament is a plant starch plastic and melts at a lower temperature (around 180 degrees C).
Which is better? Well, it depends...
