It is so much fun to 3D print with multiple colours, especially when your 3D printer comes with two nozzles. Still, you can learn how to 3D print 2 colours with 1 extruder. You can even practice to 3D print multiple colours with a single extruder and create fantastic models for your collection.
Whether you are new to 3D printing or an experienced hobbyist, you probably wish to protect your filament from tangling and drying. PLA and ABS are the two most popular filament types among enthusiasts. Thus, it is best to figure out how to store 3D printer filament (PLA and ABS) at home correctly. This way, you can preserve its properties and simplify the 3D printing process.
This is the second part of a two-series article on the most popular 3D printing filaments in which we will analyze such building materials as nylon, PET, PVA/HIPS. Last week we started analyzing general and technical properties of most commonly used filaments for home-based 3D printers, such as ABS and PLA filaments.
