The tighter the bond between layers, the stronger your prints!
The stronger your print the more hits and falls it will handle.
How about some pressure? Will it cave in?
Flex & Stretch
Do you need a rigid material or is it all about the flex?
NOT ALL FILAMENT IS CREATED EQUAL
3D printing filaments are not made the same by different brands, even if they are the same material. We test filaments in an easy way to understand so you can buy the right filament for your application.
There are many different 3D printing materials to choose from. Some of them are even mixed with additives to add special physical, chemical or visual properties.
Do you need a strong filament? One with amazing layer adhesion? Or one with great impact strength? Or do you need it to flex?
Not all filament is super easy to print. It might require a special wear resistant nozzle, high nozzle or heated bed temperatures, or even a heated chamber!!!

WE TEST FILAMENT.
YOU BUY THE RIGHT ONE.
Every single filament added to the database includes all the important information about the filament along with a complete and understandable set of results from a new and open standardized testing method created by us.

Hint: For You!
Why Are We Doing This?
Different companies use different methods for testing their filaments, and you either don’t really know what those methods are, or maybe you don’t even understand what the numbers mean. As a result, you have to decide which filament will best fit your needs based on the statements they use when advertising their product, such as “This filament is 5X stronger than [...]”, instead of being able to use a standardized method to easily compare the different filaments available. Filapedia hosts the Official 3D Printing Filament Database. Every single filament added to the database includes all the important information about the filament along with a complete and understandable set of results from a new standardized and open testing method created by us. You will also find a Materials Guide that explains the PROs and CONs of each of the main materials used. Finally, you are no longer at the mercy of advertising!!!Learn More
