What Plastic Filament Does my 3D Printer Use

Posted by Luke Chilson on

Note: This guide is now sorely out of date, with many more printers in the market and lots of changes to the brands listed here since this post went up. Hopefully it will still be a useful resource for some.

Use this guide to find which diameter and types of Plastic Filament are compatible with your 3D Printer. Your 3D Printer most likely recommends a certain combination of Plastic Filament Diameter and Material, though other materials may be supported. If your printer is known to support ABS and PLA, they will be listed in this chart.

For more information see: The Differences Between ABS and PLA for 3D Printing.

This guide is provided as is and only to be used as a reference, please remember to also check the documentation for your 3D Printer regarding correct Diameter and Material.

Please send additions or corrections to this list to content AT protoparadigm DOT com . Feel free to also ask about a printer to have us add it to the list.
