Biome3D ready for US 3D printing market

Biome3D is being launched in the United States by 3Dom USA. Made from plant starches, Biome3D is a biodegradable thermoplastic that combines easy processing and a superior print finish, while offering much higher print speeds.

John Schneider, President of 3Dom USA, explains: “At 3Dom USA we strive to offer innovative and environmentally-sound products that perform with the integrity of petroleum-based products. The Biome3D filament delivers just that. It’s very easy to work with, it’s a great alternative to PLA and it rivals ABS for when brittleness is an issue.

Plant-based plastics are already a popular choice for 3D printing because they are much easier to work with during processing, and are food safe and virtually odour free. However, oil-based printing filaments are often still used because they have a higher softening point and make more flexible models that will bend before they break. Biome3D combines the benefits of both and demonstrates that high performance plant-based plastics can be the ideal material for the 3D printing industry.
