Prusa Material Table

Our filament guide table includes all sorts of supported filaments, divided both by material and specific manufacturers. Here, you can compare their parameters starting with physical properties and ending in price. Filaments can be sorted up and down by clicking on selected parameters. They can also be filtered by their intended use. Read more about the material table background and making at our blog .

Material
Material type and list of supported manufacturers
Printing with enclosure
Some materials require higher ambient temperature to prevent warping. The best way to achieve this is to use an enclosure. If you don’t have an enclosure, adding a high skirt around the model in a slicer may help.
Dry box recommended
Some filaments tend to absorb moisture. This can be reduced using drybox.
Hardened nozzle required
Some filaments contain highly abrasive particles that can damage brass nozzles.
Nozzle temperature(+-10 °C)
Values shown below apply to the Original Prusa i3MK3S profile in PrusaSlicer. Follow the manufacturer's directions if you're using anything other than an Original Prusa 3D printer.
Bed temperature(+-10 °C)

Soluble with common solvents
Common (relatively safe) solvents are water, Isopropyl alcohol, D-limonene and Acetone. Other solvents should be handled only by skilled lab workers.
Heat deflection temperature(avg. °C)
Heat Deflection Temperature (ISO 75) is the point when the test object bends under a 0.45MPa load.
Impact resistance Charpy(kJ/m2)
Energy necessary to break test objects with Charpy pendulum (ISO 179-1).
Tensile strength(Mpa)
Force necessary to tear (or deform) test objects (ISO 527-1, ASTM D638 for flexible filaments).
