Polycarbonate filament spool

3D printing with polycarbonate filament: What is polycarbonate filament used for?

Polycarbonate filaments are frequently used in 3D printing due to their durability and strength. This type of filament is often used for transparent items that need to withstand wear and tear, such as enclosures, phone cases, and glasses. Polycarbonate is also onesolide clearest plastics available, making it ideal for applications where transparency is desired. While polycarbonate filaments are strong and impact-resistant, they are not unbreakable. Polycarbonate can become scratched over time.

For nearly a year, his government had been at war with rebels from the Tigray People’s Liberation Front, which was now pushing south from its stronghold near the Eritrean border and threatening to move on the country’s capital of Addis Ababa. Thousands had already been killed, and the United States and the United Nations had accused all the warring parties of blockading aid, committing sexual assault and deliberately targeting civilians.

Critical omissions plague Texas gun background check law

Nearly two years had passed since a student with a history of serious mental illness had gone on a deadly shooting rampage that left 32 dead at Virginia Tech. And Naishtat, then a Democratic state representative from Austin, argued that Texas was as vulnerable as Virginia had been to such mass shootings because it didn’t require the reporting of involuntary mental health commitments to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System, known as NICS. Federally licensed dealers are required to check the system before they sell someone a firearm.
