Getting to Know One of the Best 3D Printing Pens

You might already know that right now there have been a lot of 3D printing pens on the market, yet you might not have known that Lix is one of them. Lix 3D printing pen supports two types of filament plastics which are ABS or PLA. Then what is the difference between the two materials? Let us take a look at the explanation below. Take a look at some other 3D pens on www.bestpedia.co/best-3d-printing-pens/.

ABS or Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene melts at a temperature of 180 degrees Celsius and works optimally at 230 degrees Celsius. Other than that, it offers flexibility, stronger structure, more malleable and more resistant to high temperatures.
While Polylactic acid or PLA is offered with a variety of colours with a glossy appearance and can be presented with a transparent colour. But the PLA is not as powerful or as flexible as ABS, and this type is quite sensitive to high humidity. Its melting point is also lower, which is at 160 degrees centigrade and functioning optimally at a temperature of 180 degrees Celsius.
