Which Material Can Take the Most Torque?

This guy 3D printed a bunch of socket and crescent adapters to see which would shatter first.

Wrech Test 58d0006e4b0d3

In the latest video from Xometry's Will it... series, the company's director of project engineering, Greg Paulsen, puts multiple 3D printing materials to the test to see which can withstand the most torque.

He wanted to find out what would happen when he used a wrench to apply force to:

  • FDM ABS-M30
  • FDM Nylon 12
  • SLS Nylon 12
  • FDM Polycarbonate
  • FDM Ultem 9085

Which material do you think will take the most torque? Place your bets in the comments section (no cheating).
