For 3D printing: rheology PVC in Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)

Polymat is developing PVC for use in 3D printing, adapting it to Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), which democratised the new mode of printing. Through rheological research, the developers were able to produce user-friendly PVC filaments for use in open source devices. PVC’s versatility allowed multi-material printings, combining rigid and flexible materials.
