Thanks to special additives and pigments, Filaticumt PLA is characterized by easy printability and saturated colors. Even when you print in one layer, you will get the same color you see on the spool. Printable in a wide temperature and printing speed range. The Filaticum PLA can be used without heated bed, and even with an open 3D printer you will get good printing quality.
PLA filament designed for printing lithophanes, for beginners and professionals.
The uniquely developed off-white colour gives a beautifully bright appearance on thin surfaces and a darker, contrasting appearance on thicker surfaces. Printed objects will look like real photographs. Thanks to the additive used to achieve the special optical effect, the printed layers are also less visible, they almost disappear.
The PLA raw material of PLA Advanced was developed especially for manufacturing 3D printing filaments, which has to meet higher printing needs. The objects printed with this filament are stronger and more durable.
Filaticum PLA Advanced also has a higher heat resistance, up to 85 0C. With this value, it also competes against PETG and ABS filaments. This filament is less brittle, and with excellent layer adhesion we can achieve an exceptionally even surface and more precise printing. The surface of printed object can be shiny at elevated printing temperature and matt at lower temperature, but this depends on the printer also.
This filament is an improved version of our Filaticum PLA Advanced product, and it provides higher quality in terms of mechanical properties. Its PLA raw material is produced specially for 3D printing filaments, which we made even more unique with special additives; thus, it can be used as an alternative to PETG and ABS. What distinguishes from PLA Advanced is that objects printed from PRO filament are much more flexible and impact resistant.
Filaticum PLA Advanced PRO is a really user-friendly, easy-to-print filament. It adheres easily to the bed, its layer adhesion is also excellent, thus providing an even surface and more precise printing result. Higher printing temperature (225C0) is required to achieve better mechanical properties.
Filaticum Fuzzy filament was developed to create unique objects with a special surface. The layers typical for FDM 3D printing are blurred, almost disappeared, as a fluffy, fuzzy surface is formed over them. This is combined with a matt effect.
Filaticum Fuzzy is PLA-based filament, therefore PLA printing settings can be used as a baseline, and then, the surface texture of the printed object can be modified by varying the printing temperature. Recommended bed temperature: 60 °C.
For an even more special look, with a lower flow a surface with “craters” can be achieved.
In addition to the unique surface, the impact resistance of the material is also very good, it is easy to sand, post-process and glue also. The Z-axis adhesion of the print is also better compared to standard PLA filament.
To achieve the characteristic surface, in addition to PLA this filament contains additives, making it somewhat stiffer than usual. Due to the nature of the filament, it is prone to stringing, but this can be easily removed after printing without traces.
The spools weigh 750 grams, but they contain the same amount of filament length as standard 1 kg PLA filaments, so the material requirement should be calculated accordingly.
Filaticum PLA Budget filament, just like other Filaticum PLA products, provide excellent printing results. Their shrinkage is minimal, you can print them even on an unheated bed. They are available in black, white, blue, red and silver-gray colors, on 750-gram rolls at a reasonable price.
Filaticum Essence – just like Filaticum Model and Gypsum – is member of the product group containing gypsum. Their common characteristic is that the added gypsum changes the usual properties of the plastic, both functionally and aesthetically. The mineral content of Filaticum Essence is minimal, it does not contain pigments, and this combination resulted in an easy-to-use filament. The surface of printed objects is homogeneous and matt. Layers are barely visible, even in case of objects with shorter printing time, and the usual surface roughness is blurred. Mechanical post-processing of objects (polishing, carving, etc.) is easier than in case of standard PLA.

Filaticum Model – just like Filaticum Gypsum and Essence – is member of the product group containing gypsum. Their common characteristic is that the added gypsum changes the usual properties of the plastic, both functionally and aesthetically. The mineral content in the Filaticum Model is medium, less brittle than Gypsum filament, as for its basic characteristics it is between Gypsum and Essence filaments. This filament contains white pigment also, so the printed objects are off-white, with a matte finish, and the details are well outlined, which is useful for modelers. The printed models can be painted much easily than those printed with standard PLA or ABS filaments. The object can be sanded – both dry and wet – , and it is easy to cut, thus most accurate models can be printed with Filaticum Model. UV-resistant filament. It is one of the most versatile Filaticum products.
Filaticum Gypsum – just like Filaticum Model and Essence – is member of the product group containing gypsum. Their common characteristic is that the added gypsum changes the usual properties of the plastic, both functionally and aesthetically. Filaticum Gypsum has the highest mineral content, thus it is yellowish, looks like rock or gypsum. The printed objects can be shaped very easily: they can be cut with a sharp tool, sanded, and polished, thus facilitating the post-processing of the object. It is easy to paint also, even with water-based paint. Due to the high mineral content the suggested printing temperature is lower than in case of standard PLA: 185-210 0C.

Filaticum Wood filament is designed to create objects resembling real wood in texture and color. Printing settings are the same as those for standard PLA, and you should pay attention to the same things. The nozzle clogging is not an issue with Filaticum Wood, as it I usually a case with wood filaments.
At the same time, the adhesion is excellent, shrinkage is minimal.
The wood effect is also enhanced by the fact that the printed object has a unique touch that is rougher and more natural than PLA. In addition, it is relatively easy to sand and simple to paint.
This PLA-based filament offers enhanced possibilities for industrial applications. The thermal stability of objects printed with Filaticum Engineering is extremely high, they could bear up to 120 °C heat, without any heat treatment after printing. Filaticum Engineering has excellent impact resistant and durability properties compared to the basic PLA. This performance is due to different additives and lubricants. Based on the tests, the printed objects do not warp and they keep their shape well. Thanks to this characteristics, Filaticum Engineering can be used for metal replacement also. The surface of objects printed with Filaticum Engineering filament is matt.
Thanks to its unique recipe, Filaticum PLA High Impact filament provides the printed object with high impact resistance, comparable or even higher than PETG provides. The flexibility of the filament is similar to that of polypropylene, but printing with it is as simple as with any PLA filament. The impact resistance of the filament depends largely on the printing parameters, it is preferable to print at higher temperatures – up to 225 0C.
Objects printed with Filaticum Foam have got a foamy, spongy texture. The hard 3D printed foam has open cell structure. Due to the foamed structure, the layers are barely visible, and it has a nice, smooth surface. However, it can be easily sanded, cut, painted and shaped as needed. The beige color variant looks natural and the black one has a particularly shiny matte finish.
The structure of the foam, the quality and structure of the surface can be widely modified by changing the printing settings.
Objects with the required density and foam structure can be printed by setting the parameters accordingly.
At higher temperatures, lower flow and speed, and with a large nozzle the lightest foam can be produced. Using the standard PLA settings, the result is a tough foam and impact resistance. The density of an object made of Filaticum Foam is 50-60% of that of an object printed with standard PLA. Depending on the settings, it can be varied from 0.6 g / cm3 up to 1.2 g / cm3.
Filaticum Foam is suitable for applications where light 3D printed objects are needed, e.g. automotive industry, modelling or founding. Its foamed structure can be exploited in printing art objects, sculptures, and biologically active substrates. It can be applied as support material also.
Filaticum Semiflex is a soft, flexible filament. Objects printed from this filament will not break or deform when they are moderately bent, and after that they will regain their original shape.
The filament has a Shore hardness value of 95, for comparison, it is equal to the hardness of a shopping trolley wheel, for example.
Filaticum Semiflex filament is already a flexible on the spool, easy to wind without breaking or stretching. It retains its softness after printing also, making it suitable for producing various types of catches, dampers and objects where it is important not to scratch other surfaces.
Thanks to its PLA base raw material, it is much easier to print than most other flexible filaments and does not require a special printer either.
Recommended printing settings: lower speed (50 mm/s) or higher temperature (215, max. 220 °C)
Objects printed with traditional PLA filament can lose their shape and partially deform at temperatures above 60 °C. Filaticum Heat Resistant overcomes this problem.If the objects are printed with Filaticum Heat Resistant filament are heat-treated at a temperature of 80 to 100 °C for 30 to 60 minutes after printing, the object can later withstand a heat load of 130 °C.
