These materials aren't for beginners. Some of these filament materials feature high impact strength, some are resistant to high temperatures, certain chemicals, and/or outdoor exposure to UV light and the elements, while others have other special properties suited to specific applications. The one thing they all have in common is that all of these materials require special care and attention when 3D printing with them. As with any new filament material you use, be sure to check the recommended printer settings to ensure compatibility with your printer. Using the incorrect settings or an incompatible material could cause damage to your 3D printer.
