Title: Creep test with 3D printed plastic materials: PLA, PETG, ASA, Nylon. Watch on youtube: https://youtu.be/88pk2cNOeGE
Material creep is the tendency of a solid material to deform permanently under the influence of constant mechanical load. In this creep test I am comparing 4 different 3D printing filaments (PLA, PETG, ASA, Nylon) to better understand their behavior under constant load over a longer period of time. I prepared 3 different creep tests, but I am opened for suggestions, how to improve them. One of my next videos will be a comparison of 4 different ABS filaments, to find out which is the best for 3D printed Voron parts.
Used materials and methods:
Creality enclosure https://www.banggood.com/custlink/3KKEFjewOn
Torque wrench (set to 2.5 Nm) https://www.banggood.com/custlink/mD3dgBK0Kc
Filaments: PLA, PETG, ASA (Prusa) and Nylon (Gembird)
Creality dryer: https://www.banggood.com/custlink/KvGhg5VKJr
Test specimens are 3D printed on Prusa MK3s.
Results, STL files, drawings, 2D scale can be downloaded below this text.
