It has a relatively lower impact strength (as seen in the bar graph below) but a higher impact resistance than glass. It is often used as a laminated layer over Polycarbonate (PC). A bullet-proof “glass” is an example of such an application. Acrylic is also lighter than glass, with a density less than half that of glass. It has a white light transmittance of 92%, which is the highest among any widely used commercial grade material.

3D printing with cheap Nylon trimmer line/string


Is filament quality so important after all? I heard years ago that trimming line was one of the many materials that was tested on a 3D printer (the biggest list is probably here ). Really, trimmer line may be a fully compatible filament ! Trimmer line as a filament: how good?



For example, if I fold a short piece of filament double and let it go this is what happens :- PCL is rubbery and springs back almost straight, HDPE is a lot less springy. PLA is transparent like glass and breaks when bent through a small radius.
