More about monofilaments that can be used for 3D printing, like ABS or PLA.
3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes.

 Type: Extrusion
 Technologies:  Fused deposition modeling (FDM)
 Materials used:  Thermoplastics (e.g. PLA, ABS), HDPE, eutectic metals, edible materials, Rubber (Sugru), Modelling clay, Plasticine, RTV silicone, Porcelain, Metal clay (including Precious Metal Clay)


3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes).

The 3D printing technology is used for both prototyping and distributed manufacturing with applications in architecture, engineering, construction (AEC), industrial design, automotive, aerospace, military, engineering, civil engineering, dental and medical industries, biotech (human tissue replacement), fashion, footwear, jewelry, eyewear, education, geographic information systems, food, and many other fields.
It has been speculated that 3D printing may become a mass market item because open source 3D printing can easily offset their capital costs by enabling consumers to avoid costs associated with purchasing common household objects.

Swicofil is now able to provide PLA and ABS monofilaments in various colors in the common diameters 1.75 mm and 3.00 mm, amongst many other materials like any Polyamide, POM, PET or PVA for example.
We are interested in teaming up with wholesalers and distributors around the World. No supplies to private consumers.

Basic materials:

ABS (Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene)

PLA (Polylactic Acid)

Monofilament diameters:  1.75mm and 3.00mm

All our culours in ABS are approved by EU autorities for food applications. In PLA, this is anyhow the case.

First initial basic colours are: 
white, light blue, grey, yellow, green, red, brown, dark blue and black

Bobbin presentation: non retournable flanged plastic spools of 1 kg net
Minimum order quantity: 50 bobbins per colour, order and diameter


In case you are interested in other materials for 3D printing like Polyester PET, Polyacetal POM or PVA, please check out our product list and / or contact us.
