Description of Present Situations

FFF (fused filament fabrication) is an additive manufacturing technology. A fused filament fabrication tool deposits a filament of a material (such as plastic, wax, or metal) on top or alongside the same material, making a joint (by heat or adhesion).

Fused Filament Fabrication is equivalent to Fused Deposition Modeling. However, the term fused deposition modeling and its abbreviation to FDM are trademarked by Stratasys Inc. The term fused filament fabrication (FFF), was coined by the members of the RepRap project to provide a phrase that would be legally unconstrained in its use.

Objects printed with FFF are layered, so they have a grain like wood. Even when printed with an infill rate of 100%, such objects are not quite as strong (in some directions) as others. Tests show that printing the same object in different orientations, with different infill patterns, can give differences in strength of almost 2 to 1. An interlocking infill pattern seems to give more strength. For more information, see the sources listed in Further Reading.

FDM uses the thermoplastics ABS, PLA, PA, WOOD, CLEAR POLYMERS, AND RUBBER, major polymers used are PLA and ABS. For technical polymer with high mechanical and thermal characteristic are used ABS, PA and few special PLA. ABS and PA request hot bed and aren't easy to print like Standard PLA.

Keytech 3D Printing filaments are made with high special polymers, mostly never use in 3D Printing till today.

These filament are made with high thermal and mechanical characteristics.

Particular attention are PolyKey PLA HS and PolyKey PLA HS NX who have a similar thermal and mechanical characteristics of ABS and PA but are possible and easy to print like PLA.

Others new polymers are PP (Polypropylene) Special Compound with high thermal and mechanical characteristics better of ABS and PA, aren't biopolymers and in meantime have also very low moisture absorption and will be to print similar PLA.
