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.
500-gram Filaticum products are winded on a transparent plastic spool. Spools are sealed with shrink foil, and we deliver them in an environmentally friendly cardboard box which is also covered with shrink wrap.
Filaticum PLA filaments are bio-composite products.
Why bio? The raw materials used are typically natural, derived from renewable resources. The PLA’s raw material is corn, and the additives used in some filaments – e.g. gypsum, carbon fiber, carbon powder – are also natural materials.
Why composite? The filaments contain additives, which make possible to produce filaments with different mechanical, physical and chemical properties, in line with the further application needs. These additives have a positive effect on printability also, and they modify the surface structure of the printed objects.
Thanks to composites, special filaments can be designed and manufactured for different applications. You can read more about composites in our blogpost.
Filaticum filaments can be used in all common 3D printers based on FDM/FFF technology.
The used pigments result in saturated, bright, and friendly colors. The saturation is retained even on objects printed with thinner wall thicknesses. The pigments reach the best thermal stability value according to DIN 54001 and also achieve the best light resistance value according to DIN 53388.
Food safety compliance
Most of the raw materials and pigments used in the production of Filaticum products comply with the regulations in EU (EC Resolution 98(1) and Commission Regulation 10/2011/EC).
Raw material of Filaticum filaments is RoHS certified and REACH compliant.
Filaticum products do not contain or use any hazardous chemicals in the manufacturing process.
Filaticum products are made from natural raw materials and are biodegradable under industrial composting conditions.
