    What Plastics should I use for 3D printing?

    Hi,

    I plan on printing the following:
    - IO cover for z170 pro gaming aura
    - 24 Pin cablecomb
    - A fan grill (my custom design)

    It would be good if I could print these parts using PLA plastic. High temperature resistant PLA is also alright but I haven't got any currently. I will be spray painting these parts blue to match my theme, so that should add some heat resistance?

    Would a form of PLA be suitable for my use or would I have to use something else?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know personally but let me know how the IO cover comes out, I am very interested in paying for someone to 3D print one out for me. I don't have a printer and I've been looking for someone who could do it. But it looks like at 65C the PLA would hit a GTT (glass transition temp) and get soft so perhaps get some high temp PLA. This is coming from my friend who is a plastics engineer.

    Thanks for your reply. I'm not sure if you were asking me if I could 3D print it for you. But anyways, it could be a possibility. My printer is a Balco 3D Printer, which is a rebrand of the Wanhao Duplicator i3 v2.1. It can print PLA and ABS at 100 microns. I live in Brunswick area, let me know if you are interested.

    I will be printing the IO cover within the next 2 days and I'll post pictures of it when it's done. I am going to print it in normal PLA and place it on my GPU backplate and play some Battlefield and see if it gets soft at all, as it gets pretty hot on the backplate. I don't think that the IO will get close to 65 degrees though, so I think it should be alright in normal PLA. If not, I will have to buy the expensive high temperature PLA.
