FELIXbuilder – create the ultimate printsMarch 4, 2015
A great business opportunity arose with the use of 3D printingSeptember 16, 2015
We are proud to announce new filaments approved by FELIXprinters and available in our webshop.
In the extremely large options of filament suppliers, we have gone our way and tested a lot of them and cherry picked the best ones for you.
Our premium PLA offers you optimal prints by ensuring the following:
– Accurate filament diameter roundness and tolerances within ±0.05
– Great temperature stability
– Saturated colors
We get best results when printing at 190 degC for the head and 55 degC for the heated bed. For high detailed prints you can lower it even to 180 degC and at high speeds increase the temp to 200 degC
We think PETG filament is the next generation filaments for FDM 3d. In short this material combines the strengths of ABS and PLA. It is stronger than ABS, and it prints just as easy as PLA. This is the same but enhanced material used in most drinking bottles available at local grocery stores.
We like the material because of the following:
– Very ductile and tough. An example, to break the filament from the spool you have to bend it approx. 20 times back and forth and also some twisting is required, versus one or two times with ABS and PLA.
– Very rigid material
– FDA approved
– More temperature resistant than PLA
– Print overhangs better than PLA
– Fully recyclable
We get best results when printing at 215 degC for the extruder and 65-70 degC for the heated bed.
This is an amazing new flexible filament. The material is polyurethane this is used in for instance tooth belts and a wide range of applications. It is incredibly elastic and also relatively easy to print compared to arnitel (another flexible filament). This is due to the fact that it has a very low amount of warping and the bed adhesion is excellent.
We get best results when printing at 185 to 200 degC for the extruder and 40 degC for the heated bed, to be able to remove it afterwards. Print at lower speed, approx. 50-75% of PLA.
For all filaments we’ve done endurance test prints, which last 60 hours per print or more to ensure it will perform as it should.
