We get this question a lot: "Will X material work with the VAAPR bed?"
For a quick answer, here's a short list of common materials that work great with the VAAPR bed:
- Nylon (PA)
- Polycarbonate (PC)
- Polypropylene (PP)
The only materials that don't work with the VAAPR bed are highly flexible materials like TPU and TPE. They stick fine, but they will not completely release like other materials. For an alternative, we recommend Polypropylene (PP) which is quite flexible, and has good adhesion and release.
The VAAPR bed is optimized to work with most common 3D printing materials, and many high-performance engineering materials. For all the details on material compatibility, please see our Material Compatibility Page.
