The term exotics refers to filaments that are not purely PLA or ABS. Some exotic examples include Ninjaflex, which is an elastic TPE (thermoplastic elastomer). It can stretch and be crushed, returning to its original shape thereafter.

 

 

Material NamePictureNotes
Ninjaflex

Ninjaflex requires special settings and extruder modifications but will

flex much more than PLA and ABS.

BronzeFill
Has a powdery finish when not polished, can oxidize once polished
CopperFill

Has a powdery finish when not polished, can oxidize once polished

Print at 50mm/s, 210C, with heated bed, retraction distance 4.5mm and retraction speed 45mm/s

Photochromatic Filaments

The more infill in the model creates more color when under

UV light or blacklight

Thermochromatic Filaments
Filament changes color according to temperature
Glow-in-the-dark

Glows in the dark after being charged with light, gives off a neon glow

when under blacklight

Laywoo-3D

Smells like wood, brittle filament, intensity of color changes

when extruded at different temperatures; the higher the

temperature, the more it darkens

T-Glase

At 100% infill and proper extrusion settings, t-glase filament will

be completely transparent. It must be printed really hot...

Taulmann Nylon

Printed nylon is flexible, more prone to some warping and feels a bit

softer than PLA, it can also survive high temperatures and be

run through an autoclave for sanitization

Stainless Steel

Has a powdery finish when not polished, can oxidize once polished
Magnetic Iron

It is possible to write a small amount of data to this filament

Prints just like PLA, but slightly cooler
Bed Temp (if available, is not required): 50° C
Hot End Temp: 185– 195° C

Carbon Fiber

At the moment this filament is made of chopped carbon fiber;

it does not necessarily yield high tensile strength
