A water soluble material used for support structures
PVA is a non-toxic, odourless polymer that is strong enough to support heavy overhangs in the printing process. Use PVA to create more complex geometries in your final print. Dissolve the material in water to easily remove it.

Engineering-grade filament for high-strength uses
PET-CF produces strong, stiff and dimensionally stable parts. It has a low moisture absorption, a fine surface finish and is heat resistant up to 100 degrees. This material is ideal for industrial uses and end-use parts
- Industrial use
- Functional, end-use parts
More Reliable Water Soluble Support Material
BVOH is a water soluble structure that has been specially designed by Bigrep. It is designed to minimise post-processing as it is easily dissolved away. It has been optimised for improved melt flow, eliminating concerns of hotend clogging that often comes with other soluble materials
- Support Structures
Highest Temperature Resistance
The filament is resistant to temperature up to 160 degrees, it remains dimensionally stable with minimal warpage. It is biodegradable, CO2 neutral and environmentally friendly. It is food safe and up to EU standards.
- Electrical casings
- Jigs and fixtures
Flexible Materials with Engineering Properties
TPU is a flexible material with good mechanical properties. It is strong enough to be used for high demand products (skateboard wheels, sport shoes) but it’s ‘soft to touch’ properties make it suitable for item such as; door handles, knobs etc.
- Ergonomic items (grips etc.)
- High wear items (skateboard wheels)
PLA-derived Filament with Advanced Properties
PLX is a general-use biodegradable material that produces robust parts. It can print up to 80% faster than PLA with no modifications to the printer. PLX can produce consistent parts that out preform ABS.
- Surgical Guides
Versatile and Impact Resistant
ABS produces a wide variety of products. Bigrep has been optimised for large-format printing of complex, ready to use parts including end-use factory tooling and functional porotypes. ABS is strong, resistant to heat and easy to post process.
- White goods
- Consumer appliances
Affordable and Versatile
PLA is an inexpensive material with relatively good mechanical properties. It has a wide range of useful properties making it ideal for most non-demanding uses, such as; food safe, environmentally safe and low warpage.
