All About Acrylic Plastic

3D Printing Hub

It has a relatively lower impact strength (as seen in the bar graph below) but a higher impact resistance than glass. 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. The result of that process was the creation of an acrylic sheet, which ended up separating from the glass. Medical : Acrylic has a favorable compatibility with the human tissue.

Guide to Unusual 3D Printing Materials


Human Body Experience. Used mostly in architecture, these huge 3D printers deposit a concrete combination of glass fiber, recycled material and cement. It is a mixture of plastic and 40-50% recycled wood chips. Glass. That said, the glass still in an experimental phase.
