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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
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 Electrical products are used mainly in the electronics and automotive industry where electrostatic charging of the printed object can damage the product. Objects printed with Filaticum CONDUCTIVE, ESD or ANTISTATIC do not charge electrostatically due to the special carbon and chemical additives. Additionally, the dust and fine powder does not stick on the surface.
To decide for which application which filament suits the best, can be determined mainly experimentally. It depends on the electrical and mechanical requirements of the objects, and the 3D printing parameters. Filaticum Antistatic has the best mechanical properties, similar to standard PLA. Filaticum Conductive is the most rigid in this line, because of the used carbon powder and fiber, required for conductivity. Filaticum ESD is somewhere in the middle range.
Filaticum Antistatic: its main feature is the immediate and permanent antistatic effect. Its important characteristic also that it does not absorb the moisture content of the air. It keeps most physical properties of PLA, and it has increased impact strength compared to PLA. It can be produced in any color. No sloughing, off gassing or blooming.
For proper printing results use PLA printing settings: we recommend 210-230 °C printing temperature, at least 0.2 mm nozzle, and printing speed no higher than 90 mm / sec. Bed temperature 40-60 °C, usually any type of surface can be used.
