I’m asking this question in this group because I know all the cool people hang out here
No seriously, its cos I feel there are some and mostly awesome minds in this club.
I’m looking at making a Delta out of some excess t slot and an old Mendel 3d printer as a donor for most other parts.
Question is: what is the best (most rigid and strong) plastic for printing printer components? I want the corners to be stiff AND strong… Nylon was a thought but I’m not sure that it will be rigid enough? PET-G or ABS? PLA is very stiff, then there are more exotics and branded materials such as colorfab XT etc…
Opinions? Information will be relevant to any reprap 3d printers. A lot of builds use ABS for hi temp parts and PLA for low temp parts, makes sense but what would be ideal? Quality over price, don’t mind paying for better materials.
