Tiamet3D started experimenting with different additives for PLA and with a small desktop extruder he began to try standard combinations. First carbon fiber powder, then fiber glass, and even bamboo. This yielded the same results as the base polymer, in fact it seemed to break faster! It seems that most additives for the non-industrial market are merely a marketing gimmick with no real strength benefits.
Tiamet3D was able to achieve significant strength improvement. First by using a specially treated carbon fiber, and later by incorporating nano materials to create extremely high strength nano-composites. Tiamet 3D is furthering this disruptive force, of accessible 3D printers, by supplying better than industrial grade materials to the desktop printer market.
