The 3D printing industry is booming. Indeed, since the beginning of the 2000s, the evolution of this technology has seen this market democratize rapidly.
Initially confined to prototyping and small parts, 3D printing is now used in many sectors such as automotive, medical, luxury and even construction for large objects.
One of the most common and easy to implement techniques is FDM 3D printing. This technique consists of melting a plastic filament or granules directly through a nozzle heated to high temperature. The molten material is deposited in line and comes to stick on what was deposited beforehand.
One of the most used materials is PLA. Indeed, it is easy to implement and gives a good aesthetic quality to the room. In addition, due to its low thermal properties, printing temperatures are not very high.
It is also possible to incorporate co-products (coffee, cereals, shells, etc.) into the material in order to give original aesthetic effects to the material.
