We provide PLA (polylactic acid) filament for printing. PLA is a biodegradable thermoplastic derived from renewable resources (primarily corn starch), and is not considered a hazardous material.  We do not provide ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) for printing, as we do not have the appropriate ventilation for it and fumes from printing may cause irritation. If you're interested in trying a different material, we have a few select specialty filaments available in TechLab 2.  Please contact us for more info.
