Different types of threads are used for different objects and possess different properties. For example, the most commonly known is ABS, which may be used almost in every sphere (electronics, instruments, moving components, pipes, etc.), it is very durable, light, and slightly flexible, but emits dangerous fumes and requires high temperatures. PLA, on the other hand, is made from corn starch and similar eco-friendly renewable sources, it has low-temperature requirements and doesn’t have any odor. It’s used in medicine and surgery, as well as hygiene products and food packaging.

For 3D printing, people also use nylon, polycarbonate and polyethylene, and glass. Nylon is also used in the medical industry, especially for cartilages and prosthetics. Glass is very tough and needs high temperatures. It’s used in food containers. Polycarbonate is very durable and resistant, it is used in the automotive, space, and medical industries, as well as for creating prototype objects. Polyethylene is considered to be one of the strongest filaments, and it is mostly used in the food industry.
