One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is “Which 3D printing material is the strongest?” With the MakerBot METHOD’s wide range of materials including Carbon Fiber, ABS, Nylon, and PLA - it can be challenging to determine which material is right for your specific application.

Part strength can play a big role in determining whether or not that material will work for your application. Felipe Castañeda hosts this special edition of MakerBot Chat, answering the frequently asked question, “which 3D printing material is the strongest?” and put a few of them to the test, including Carbon Fiber, ABS, Nylon, and PLA.

Primary Topics Covered:

  • Compare the material tech specs
  • Guess how the materials will perform
  • Discuss other variables that can affect part strength

  • Test the same prints printed in:
  • ABS
    PLA
    NYLON CARBON FIBER
    POLYCARBONATE
    And more...
